TD dance doesn’t impress ex-NFLer

 

 

Mike Tolbert scored his fourth touchdown of the season Sunday against Atlanta, and then the Carolina Panthers running back celebrated (above) as only a man scoring a touchdown against the Falcons can.

But not everyone was so impressed with Tolbert’s celebratory dance.

For one, Tolbert can probably expect a strongly-worded letter from PETA condemning his use of anti-bird imagery. This isn’t a world where imaginary bird-kicking will be tolerated.

He also got a strong critique from Jamal Anderson, the originator of the Dirty Bird:

But don’t get it twisted. Anderson is totally not miffed about Tolbert using his dance. He even said so himself:

Right. Sure he’s not.
