Panthers defensive end Charles Johnson saw Dan Akroyd when he was out last night and took a picture with the actor. Johnson tweeted the picture to his followers who hassled him for wearing an Atlanta Falcons hat.
“I can’t wear whatever I want,” an agitated Johnson tweeted back. “Whatever hat I want. I know what team I play for on Sunday. If you question that then that’s your fault.
“Anybody that said stupid comments about my hat bout to get block. So if it’s you then. See ya!! RideorDie fans only on my twitter.”
Once Johnson threatened his followers with the hammer of god, they cooled down. We’ve been down this road several times before. Tom Brady has angered Boston-area fans by wearing San Francisco Giants and New York Yankees lids. Kevin Durant caused a stir by wearing a Chicago Bulls hat. But as Durant later explained, nobody ever wears a hat because of the team anymore. Guess that’s the way we have to look at it.
Panthers fans should also realize that Johnson is from Georgia and that he wears Braves hats. When he wears the Atlanta gear, he’s showing his support for his hometown more than their sports teams.
