Cam Newton, one of the biggest sports athletes in the United States, had to sit with the normal folk on his way back from France this weekend.

A man named Eli Edwards shared video on Twitter Friday that showed the Carolina Panthers QB trying to pay someone $1,500 to swap seats with him on a plane flight and was turned down. Newton appeared to be sitting coach on the flight and tried to pay for extra legroom before having to go back to his seat.

Some people were dumbfounded that the man didn’t take the money from Cam.

Others said they would have rejected Cam’s offer too.
