Most Panthers fans are a different color that Black and Blue, sure they cheer on the Panthers and a stoked with the 8-0 start but deep down, they are Steeler Yellow, Colorado Orange, they still have that Bears football jersey from 1999 the year they moved to Charlotte.

The trouble with this type of behavior is that no Panther fan is safe at any away game. You can't have high profile people doing this sort of thing and have it not come back to bite you.
Newton defended his actions in the post game presser:
Now thanks to Cam any fan with Panthers gear is fair game. Not that I'd ever wear Panthers beanie to a Steelers game in Pittsburg.
A little sub plot, apparently Newton was getting some push back right away for his stupid move, so he had his team mates try to take some of the heat in a "I'm Spartacus" way.
It didn't work so well.
