While at Sunday's Carolina v. Seattle game Newton spotted Panthers fans Taz Mendoza and his wife from Idaho in the stands and convinces them to pose for a photo. A photo he later uploads to ESPN and tweets the link. Sweèt right?
Well, that's what the fans thought except Newton is a jerk who can't help himself and so he uses the photo to crack on the fan's weight.
These Panthers' fans came to Seattle from Idaho. Didn't know they made Luke Kuechly jersey in DT size. Good timing for this couple on getting to see Kuechly. He is playing for the first time since suffering a concussion in the opener.
So his snarky fat shaming comment about a Panthers fan who posed for a photo in Seattle isn't getting a lot of press yet, but I'd expect a well deserved firestorm is brewing.
Cedar's Take: Taz, thanks for being a true Panther's fan
