Tennesee Titans fan Rosemary Plorin is making headlines today after penning an open letter calling out NFL quarterback Cam Newton for celebrating a touchdown run during his Carolina Panthers’ trouncing of the Titans.

Plorin says she was at the game with her nine-year-old daughter when Cam’s celebratory dancing became an issue.

“Because of where we sat, we had a close up view of your conduct in the fourth quarter. The chest puffs. The pelvic thrusts. The arrogant struts and the ‘in your face’ taunting of both the Titans’ players and fans. We saw it all … I refuse to believe you don’t realize you are a role model. You are paid millions of dollars every week to play hard and be a leader. In the off season you’re expected to make appearances, support charities, and inspire young kids to pursue your sport and all sports … And because you are a role model, your behavior brought out like behavior in the stands. Some of the Panthers fans in our section began taunting the hometown fans. Many Titans fans booed you, a few offering instructive, but not necessarily family friendly, suggestions as to how you might change your behavior … My daughter sensed the change immediately – and started asking questions. Won’t he get in trouble for doing that? Is he trying to make people mad? Do you think he knows he looks like a spoiled brat? … I could tell she was still thinking about it as we boarded a shuttle back to our car. ‘I guess he doesn’t have kids or a Mom at home watching the game,’ she added … I don’t know about your family life Mr. Newton, but I think I’m safe in saying thousands of kids watch you every week. You have amazing talent and an incredible platform to be a role model for them. Unfortunately, what you modeled for them today was egotism, arrogance and poor sportsmanship. Is that what your coaches and mentors modeled for you, Mr. Newton?”

The letter, as you probably could have imagined, didn’t sit well with a lot of folks who are saying Cam’s race is the only reason the mother penned the letter.

Do you all feel the mother is right? Does Cam have an “obligation” to “behave” after scoring or nah?

Published

It all started with an ill-worded tweet … and ended with an apology and a shocking revelation!

After gymnast Gabby Douglas’ Final Five teammate Aly Raisman posted a message about supporting sexual assault victims, Douglas responded with a message of her own.

Almost immediately, Douglas felt the swift blow-back her insensitive tweet brought about. Even Simon Biles, another Final Five member, had to check Gabby.

Facing harsh criticism and heated social media comments, Douglas apologized. But, in her apology the Olympian revealed that she, too had been a victim of Dr. Larry Nassar, the Team USA doctor that was accused of sexually assaulting Raisman, McKayla Maroney and others. Gabby’s public plea was posted on Instagram with the caption, “please hear my heart.”

The jury’s still out on whether the masses will forgive Gabby, but at least Nassar will get his due punishment. He pleaded guilty to several counts of sexually assault today and faces 25 to 40 years in prison.
