Several NFL players have taken to social media to react to the viral video of a teen disrespectfully trash-talking Cam Newton on the sideline.
In the video, a young player can be seen heckling the NFL veteran for being a “free agent” and “poor” despite the fact that Newton has earned over $100 million during his career and has a resume most players would dream of having.

Cam should’ve asked him to leave. Kid thinks he’s being funny, cute, but he’s being super disrespectful. This isn’t the 1st time kid has gotten outta pocket with an adult. Remember our parents would say behave be respectful when dropping us off somewhere. I miss that. SAD pic.twitter.com/dKE0pzgnAv

The most common kind of respect has unfortunately become DISrespect. The 💩gets glorified everywhere you turn. Don’t be shocked at what the young kid did to Cam. Try to do something to turn the tide.
