Cam Newton Caught up in More Controversy
Cam Newton got a lot of backlash last football season for his on the field celebrations and even though he felt doing the dab was harmless, it didn’t sit well with his critics.
The Carolina Panthers star was even called a thug and accused of not being sportsman like, but he claims he doesn’t think race is a factor.
In fact, he tells GQ Magazine that as a country, we’re beyond race.
Check out the quotes:
“It’s not racism. Everybody’s entitled to their own opinion.
“I don’t want this to be about race, because it’s not. It’s not. Like, we’re beyond that. As a nation.”
Needless to say, Cam has been getting dragged something serious by Black Twitter. In fact, some are now withdrawing their support for the athlete:
“Cam Newton is a thug”
