There’s no age limit to producing a comeback.
Seven-year-old Reese Emanuele decided to give Carolina Panthers Quarterback Cam Newton an instructional video about routes in football. Images included just in case.
The quarterback mocked a female reporter at a press conference on Wednesday after she asked a question about routes. There were many reactions to the sexist comment, but this video might be the best response yet.
Eric “EROCK” Emanuele (@TheMightyEROCK) posted the video of his daughter and its garnered over 2,000 retweets so far.
“It was my idea. We are season ticket holders to the Eagles. I learned the game of football from my mother, not my father, so when people discount the female knowledge of the game it irks me a bit.” he told Mashable.
He decided to just poke fun at the situation, knowing Newton has since apologized, but wanted to shed a light that “with the next Thursday night football game being Panthers vs Eagles…we had to let them know that the female eagles fans know their stuff.”
People went on Twitter to post reactions to the video. Many praised the young girl for her knowledge and witty comebacks.
Despite the praise, the video sparked mixed reactions, to which her father replied, “To all those dudes upset by the video…practice what you preach. Take a joke. Y’all gown [sic] men getting triggered by a 7 year old.”
The 7 year old ended the video with, “If you forget anything, the Eagles are going to show you on Thursday night football.” Talk about a serious burn.
So, let this be an example to never underestimate a girl’s intelligence and perfect comebacks.
