Hersh’s Pizza is offering free pizza to Ravens fans who turn in their Ray Rice jerseys.

In the wake of a graphic TMZ.com video that shows the star running back assaulting his fiancée (who is now his wife) in the hotel elevator of an Atlantic City casino last winter, the Federal Hill pizzeria delivered a no-holds-barred statement on Facebook.

“Dear Lovers of Women, Not Hitting Women, Non Violence and Just Generally Being a Good Person,” reads the post. “Come trade your Ray Rice Ravens Jersey in for a free pizza at Hersh's. These jerseys will save us money on toilet paper this week.”

Support from the community has been resounding. In less than 24 hours, the page has garnered more than 1000 "likes" and a post asking for further suggestion on what to do with "all the Ray Rice jerseys we collect, since there are only so many we can use for toilet paper," garnered close to an additional 500 "likes". 

For each shirt it receives, Hersh’s is donating a symbolic $2.70 (the number of the terminated and indefinitely suspended player’s jersey number) to the House of Ruth, a charity for victims of intimate partner violence.
