A couple of days ago, a young football player attending a 7v7 tournament went viral for going at Cam Newton. The former NFL MVP was attending the camp and walking around the young stars, providing some guidance and advice.
The kid, however, started calling the Heisman winner out, claiming that he's going to be poor upon entering free agency following his subpar year with the New England Patriots. Cam, however, kept his cool despite confronting the young player.
And, now that the kid realized that it was a terrible look and that this avoidable incident could take a massive toll on his future as he looks to earn a college scholarship, he issued an apology on social media.
Heckling Kid Apologizes To Cam Newton
"First & for most I want to express my deepest apologies to Cam Newton, my entire org, & my coaches for my actions at the 7v7 tournament this past weekend. I did not intend for it to get as far as it did! First I would like to start off by saying my parents never taught me to people disrespectful. As a football player I let my competitive side get the best of me & it was a huge miscommunication. It was in the midst of the moment & I realize now how a lot of you took it as disrespect. I never meant to humiliate & let anyone down. I am very appreciative for 7v7 to even allow me to be apart of the community & allowing me to be apart of the team I am currently on. I realize this can dictate my future as a young man having very big dreams/goals but I will not allow this to stop me from getting where I need to be. So again, I apologize & hope I can be forgiven," the kid wrote.
This is not the kind of look you want to give when you're trying to make it to the big leagues. Hopefully, this apology came from the heart and he'll learn that he won't get anywhere by disrespecting those who actually fulfilled their dreams.
