Cam Newton is under scrutiny after posting a picture of himself carrying his son, Chosen, while riding a hoverboard. Many critics commented on dangers associated with the act.
“That’s very risky to be on that hover board holding your child,” said one Instagram subscriber. “This is so dangerous,” commented another.
As shown in the picture above, Cam is cradling his son while riding the board. While there is nothing necessarily wrong with the way the NFL star is holding his son, the problem arises when one considers the instability of hoverboards. At any moment, the star could have fallen off the board and dropped his son. This is what fans deemed dangerous about the photo.
Cam became a father for the first time last year. Cam did not announce his girlfriend Kim Proctor’s expectancy because he didn’t want to distract his team from giving their best effort at the Super Bowl. “I’ve been quiet about this because I didn’t want to create a distraction for my team and appreciate the privacy in this joyous time,” he tweeted. Chosen will celebrate his first birthday in December.
