After he watched Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton storm out of a press conference that followed the Panthers’ loss to the Denver Broncos at Super Bowl 50, Rob Lowe was more than a little peeved.
The “Parks and Recreation” and “The West Wing” actor offered a candid take on the incident that alluded that Newton lacked class.
After losing to the Broncos, Newton kept his answers short and tense during a post-game press conference that ultimately ended with Newton’s abrupt exit.
Lowe attended the game with one of his sons and was spotted wearing a Denver Broncos jersey to support his longtime friend Peyton Manning.
After Lowe’s tweet went up, many Twitter users immediately pointed out that Lowe may not be the best person to be dishing out examples of who is and who is not a good example for a child.
Some Tweets directed at Lowe contained reference to the late 1980s sex tape scandal that almost derailed his career.
Lowe videotaped himself having sex with two women during the 1988 Democratic Convention. One of those women was 16 at the time, which was against the law in the state of Georgia, where the video was filmed.
“You are literally a child rapist,” one Twitter user spat at Lowe.
