Cam Akers Had An Ill-Timed Taunt Over An Unconscious Budda Baker During Rams-Cardinals Playoff Game

Cam Akers trended on Monday night because people were angry with him over an ill-timed celebration.

Late in the Rams-Cardinals playoff game, Cardinals’ safety Budda Baker was carted off the field after he was knocked out cold when he took a brutal hit to the head while trying to tackle Cam Akers.

After the play, Akers appeared to taunt Baker while he was unconscious on the ground.

Update: Akers apologized for the taunt on Twitter after the game.

Fans immediately noted that it was unlikely that Akers knew the severity of Baker’s injury at the time.
