Cam Newton is heading for Santa Clara to lead his Panthers in Super Bowl 50, and he’s making no apologies for his temperament.
The Carolina Panthers QB has come under fire from many observers for his swagger on the field. Much of the criticism has centered around Cam’s signature move, “The Dab,” which he uses during touchdown celebrations. The Urban Dictionary defines “dabbin” as “Atlanta lingo for a level of confidence to your swag. (verb) one can be seen raising his left elbow to express it.” Here you can see his demonstration getting the Tennessee Defense pretty hot:
One Tennessee mother actually sent an open letter to the Charlotte Observer, expressing her concerns that Cam Newton’s actions were highly unsportsmanlike and unbecoming of a true role model.
Cam Newton, however, isn’t having any of it. He’s partnered with Beats By Dre to call out his haters in a new commercial that’s airing over this NFL post-season. His response to the critics: “Too bad they don’t make Band-Aids for feelings.”
