While sports outlets spent Monday discussing Cam Newton’s post-game presser comments about refs ignoring late hits on him, the Internet was more interested in his outfit – a checkered shirt under a blush pink blazer, accented by a patterned bowtie and aqua feathered hat. Not to mention paint-splatter sneakers.
He was dragged and memed in no time:

Regarding his legitimate complaint about late hits not being called, Cam said he plans to discuss the issue with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
“It’s not fun. It’s really taking the fun out of the game for me,” Cam said. “At times, I don’t even feel safe. And enough is enough. I plan on talking to Commissioner Goodell about this. And I don’t know what I have to do.”
Referencing the refs, Newton continued: “The story of my life ever since I came in is, ‘Oh, oh, well we missed that one. I’m sorry. I’ll try to get it.’ That’s bullcrap. As a player in this league, if we do something stupid, we get fined. If you something derogatory to somebody else, we get fined. I can’t keep accepting, ‘Oh, we missed that one. Or, ‘I apologize for doing that.’ Or, ‘I didn’t see it.’ That’s horsescrap.”
“To see other quarterbacks getting it, lesser hits, less physical hits then it’s taking the fun out for me. I’m just being honest with that,” Newton said.
