Cam Newton’s politically correct response to Colin Kaepernick’s on-field activism is not sitting well with folks on Twitter. Cam was asked about his peer’s decisions to sit for the National Anthem during football games and offered up this response to ESPN:

“You know, a lot of scrutiny happens when athletes start talking about, you know, race, but the truth of the matter is we gotta do right by each other. No matter what color we are … Who am I to say, ‘Colin, you’re wrong?’ And who am I to say, ‘Bro, you’re right?’ Because we all, you know, we all have the right to think whatever we wanna think. And I respect that by everybody,” Cam said.

Colin has refused to stand during the National Anthem for the San Francisco 49ers’ past three pre-season football games. The quarterback says he’s refusing to stand because he doesn’t believe he should celebrate a country that oppresses people of color. The bold move has been lauded by many and slammed by others.

Cam’s take has managed to be as divisive, pacifying those who believe racism doesn’t exist and infuriating those who recognize the problem. Some of those folks took to Twitter to bash Cam over his words, with many leaning on comic relief as a way of dealing with their disappointment in the dabbing athlete.

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
