Cam Newton Addresses Viral Photo & Rumored Beef With Colin Kaepernick
Last Sunday, the Carolina Panthers absolutely destroyed the San Francisco 49ers by a score of 46-27.
After the game, the above photo was taken and posted online, and it went viral immediately as rumors swirled of a perceived beef between Panthers QB Cam Newton and 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick.

On Wednesday, Cam Newton took to Instagram to give his side of the story and state there is no beef between them, whatsoever.
It’s hard to read what Cam wrote because he clearly wrote it with his elbows. It reads as follows:
“I salute my brother, @Kaepernick7 for making a stand for injustice in this country but … The real problem is and will always be the people; and how we treat one another. I see a lot of memes and even articles about Cam vs. Kap, ‘Are they OK?’ But the truth is we are good and will always be good … We all are different and have the right to feel anyway we want to … And I salute him for standing (in this case kneeling) for something to if not to fix the issues; raise awareness of the issues.
“I’m an African American; that’s black and proud to the day I die and I try to make an impact in my community as much as I can. How are you making a difference? But it all goes for nothing if we all don’t police ourselves and love one another no matter what the race is. We all have to do better and be held accountable for our actions (police included).
” … I’m not here to talk about race, I’m here to talk about what’s right!!! And we all have to do what’s right no matter the race, age or gender. #WeAllWantAndNeedJustice #StandForSomething #StandForWhatsRight #DontDwellOnNegativity #BeTheSolution #AllLoveHereForMyBrotha #1WMW – LoveMore #HatersWillSayItsPhotoshopped.”
