Ric Flair Is Getting Death Threats From Carolina Panthers Fans

I’ll use the term celebrity loosely. Looser than Flair man cans in a tank top.

In case you missed it, here is Flair addressing a conference room full of men pretending to be excited about a wrestler. 

Flair’s agent claims the wrestling legend received death threats and was attacked online for his pre-game pep talk to the 49ers before their game last week against Green Bay.

Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith wasn’t too thrilled about Flair’s face turn. “I'm not sure if he'll get the invite” to Sunday's division matchup, Smith told the Charlotte Observer, “that Golden Gate Bridge has been burned.”

Flair himself couldn’t be reached for comment. I’ll just assume his comment is “woo.”
