It was mostly fun and games Monday when news spread that rapper Diddy said he wanted to buy the Panthers, but talk that he’d give former NFL player Colin Kaepernick a shot at being quarterback did not amuse fans of Cam Newton.
Though Newton has had his share of publicity bumps, he is arguably the most beloved man in Charlotte, adored as both an athlete and philanthropist devoted to helping kids.
It’s entirely possible Diddy wasn’t serious, considering he also recently posted on Instagram that he was changing his name. That, he later said, was just the booze talking.
Either way, Carolina Panthers fans were not amused, including one who tweeted: “The P in P Diddy stands for Pinhead.”
Never miss a local story.
Here’s some of the things Newton fans tweeted Monday.
