Colin Kaepernick Does Decent Cam Newton Touchdown Celebration Impression (GIF)
As I write this, the San Francisco 49ers are clobbering the Carolina Panthers by a score of 23-10 in the 4th quarter. That makes this story about San Francisco QB Colin Kaepernick mocking Panthers quarterback Cam Newton‘s signature touchdown celebration during the third quarter of that same game seem even meaner than it did when it happened.
An important thing to keep in mind is that this was a home game for Carolina, so Kaepernick is showing some gall in making fun of Newton’s signature “Superman” gesture after a touchdown that increased the 49ers’ lead over the Panthers to 20-10. This is kind of an interesting counterpoint to Newton’s penchant for celebration imitations, but whether it was all in good fun or a dick move on Kaepernick’s part probably depends on which team you were rooting for.
Unfortunately for Panthers fans (as well as fans of Cam Newton), it doesn’t look like Newton’s going to get his chance at a retort this season. So for now you’ll have to settle with Kaepernick’s Cam-Newton-channeling touchdown celebration, which you can check out in the GIF below:
