Team Cam vs. Team Kap: This photo has sparked a hilarious Twitter debate
Sunday, the Carolina Panthers took on the San Francisco 49ers. But more importantly, Cam Newton and Colin Kaepernick came face-to-face. Over the past few weeks, both quarterbacks have been under the microscope for different reasons. Kaepernick, for using his platform to protest injustice, and Newton for playing the fence. That's why their latest photo op went viral. There they were: Newton with his towel and Kaepernick with his afro picked by God himself. There's no way Black Twitter was going to let this moment pass
There was a question that needed to be answered.
I REALLY want to know what was said between Cam and Kaepernick in that picture— Martin LubeHer King (@PrinceBama) September 18, 2016'
This was the most obvious scenario.
Cam: "Why didn't you stand up for the flag?" Kaepernick: "Why didn't you dive for the ball" pic.twitter.com/er3vhnn0d1 — Briantelevision1 (@BrianHudson718) September 18, 2016 ''
But maybe they were debating something else?
