Cam Newton has officially dabbed out.
“I have to put that aside,” Newton said.
Newton originally helped dabbing—an infamous dance move—gain international popularity during a game against the Tennessee Titans in 2015. Since then, Newton has been an icon for the movement, performing it throughout the 2015 season.
Now, that’s all over and the dab era has begun to come to an end. Predictably, Twitter had a heated reaction to Newton’s announcement.

“I have time,” he said. “I have until September to find out.”
