Cam Newton Won’t Forget Colin Kaepernick Mocking Him

Cam Newton Won’t Forget Colin Kaepernick Mocking Him

Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports

Every time Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton scores a touchdown, he celebrates by doing what has been called the “Superman” pose. Meanwhile, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick celebrates a score by kissing his flexed bicep. On Sunday, Kaepernick decided to switch it up in a move that won’t soon be forgotten by Newton.

In the third quarter of the NFC Divisional playoff game between the Panthers and 49ers, Kaepernick helped extend San Francisco’s lead by scoring on a four-yard touchdown run. After the touchdown, he imitated Newton’s “Superman” pose and then followed with buttoning up his shirt and kissing his bicep, which didn’t sit well with the Carolina fans or players.

“I think you know the answer,” Kaepernick said in his postgame press conference when he was asked about the celebration and who it was referring to.

It was a move that really didn’t surprise anyone considering the quarterback continuously rubs opponents the wrong way. Of course, what he does during games isn’t much different of what a majority of other players around the league do.

Newton didn’t appear too happy about what Kaepernick did. However, he wasn’t able to do much about it on the field. It seems he will have to wait until next season to get his revenge, if the teams do indeed meet again.

“It’s not the first nor the last time somebody does that,” Newton said before he left his press conference, according to ESPN.

He then added, “I still won’t forget it.”

The 49ers will play the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Championship on Sunday.

    Dude do some research. The Panthers mocked Kaep earlier this year with his bicep kiss. This was payback.

    Paybacks a bitch. Can dish it out but can’t take it. Don’t forget to tell Steve Smith to “ice up, son” while you are at it

      Typical response for a Seahawks fan. Richard Sherman is the definition of a true hood rat. You can talk when your team wins a Super Bowl. And it won’t be this year.
