Some kids just have no respect.
On Sunday, a video went viral on the Internet depicting NFL QB Cam Newton confronting a disrespectful heckling teen at a 7v7 high school football game.
In the video, the teen could be heard yelling “You’re a free agent, you’re broke” to Newton who responded by saying he’s “rich” and asking where the kid’s dad was at.
Cam got a little triggered 👀 pic.twitter.com/D7MZkLdorg

Twitter had some thoughts on the teenager being disrespectful to an NFL player.
What a punk that kid is. You’re talking to a former MVP and QB who played in the SB. Probably out there to support a group/charity too. Show some respect! https://t.co/Z6Yr0vdJPY

We think that athletes always measure themselves by the standards of their contemporaries.
I’d like to think they measure themselves up to the average person.
Yeah he’s a free agent in the NFL who’s made millions of dollars and won an MVP. What have you done? https://t.co/UKamf35B3G

Lot of folks way too comfortable saying anything to anybody. Teenager or not, you don’t buck at somebody and then be shocked they respond.
Lil coward thought he was tough and looked like a fool https://t.co/0UhQnkmbYu

21' folks disrespect folks and think they can control their reaction. When folks start going upside people head then what? https://t.co/iK5Rtf96dM
