Carolina Panthers star quarterback Cam Newton has taken a lot of criticism for his touchdown celebrations lately, but he doesn’t have time to listen because he has been busy feeding hungry children.

Newton hosted his annual Thanksgiving dinner Monday night for underprivileged children in the Charlotte area and around 900 children attended the event, according to USA Today.

There was even a contest for the children featuring Newton’s famous “dab” celebration.


Newton, who has led the Panthers to a 10-0 record, has come under intense criticism for his touchdown celebrations. One mother even penned a letter to Newton accusing him of being a poor role model because of his excessive celebrations in her opinion. (RELATED: Wisconsin Cheesehead Goes To Cops After Star Quarterback Takes His Banner)
