Ravens fans looking to clean house of any Ray Rice paraphernalia can use it to get a slice of pizza.

Hersh’s Pizza, in Baltimore’s Federal Hill section, was so disgusted by the actions of the Ravens running back after a video surfaced of Rice punching his then-fiancée (now wife) Janay Palmer, that it’s offering customers free pizza in exchange for a jersey with his name on it.

“Come trade your Ray Rice Ravens Jersey in for a free pizza at Hersh’s,”Hersh’s Pizza said in a statement on their Facebook page.

“These jerseys will save us money on toilet paper this week.”

The offer was posted Monday morning, just hours after posted a video of Rice delivering a violent punch to Palmer in an elevator at an Atlantic City hotel. Though the NFL originally suspended Rice for just two games, he has since been suspended indefinitely and cut from the Ravens following a media firestorm surrounding the damning footage.

Hersh’s later posted that they were going to use the discarded jerseys to help others. The pizza restaurant pledged to donate $2.70—(Rice’s jersey number was 27)—to Maryland’s House of Ruth, a Baltimore foundation that helps victims of domestic abuse and violence against women.
