The no-fun-league strikes again.
Lions running back Jamaal Williams was stunned that he was flagged for a touchdown dance on Sunday, but it only got worse almost a week later when he got fined for it.
Detroit Lions running back Jamaal Williams has been fined $13,261 for unsportsmanlike conduct on his touchdown celebration during a Week 3 loss, per NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.
Williams went viral over his famous Hingle McCringleberry three-pump hip thrust celebration from the famed Key and Peele sketch show. He was given a 15-yard penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct following the celebration.
Williams discussed the celebration with reporters after the game:
“It’s not even thrusting. It’s more like a wave. … I’ve been getting away with it for all these years but now they want to bust me for it. I was pissed. I was sad and disappointed in myself because I gave the team a penalty.”
Williams, who is in his second season with the Lions, has rushed for 168 yards and four touchdowns in three games, in addition to catching four passes for 29 yards.
