Fans call NFL star Cam Newton’s brimless hat a yarmulke


(JTA) — Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is 6-foot-5, and he has a big personality to match his size. He’s no stranger to making headlines and fashion statements.

At his weekly media conference on Wednesday, Newton donned a brimless Panthers hat, raising eyebrows in the process.

Some fans saw it as the Panthers version of a yarmulke. (Newton, 29, isn’t Jewish.)

You do you, Cam.
