Betty White Says She Taught Cam Newton How To Dab
Betty White took to Twitter during the Super Bowl Sunday night to reveal that she deserves some credit for Carolina Panther quarterback Cam Newton‘s signature celebration.

White, 94, tweeted, “I taught @CameronNewton everything he knows. #SuperBowl.” The tweet included a picture of the Golden Girls star doing The Dab dance move that Newton whips out after scoring a touchdown.

White’s own take on Dabbing was also featured in a video that played ahead of kickoff. Though Larry King, David Letterman, LL Cool Jay and Ray Romano seemed a bit skeptical of her influence, White showed her moves.
Unfortunately for the Panthers, Newton didn’t manage to get into the end zone Sunday night and celebrate with The Dab. The Carolina squad only managed to put up 10 points on the board – a 1-yard-run by Jonathan Stewart got them a touchdown in the second quarter, and Graham Gano kicked a field goal in the fourth.
The Denver Broncos, led by veteran quarterback Peyton Manning, won Super Bowl 50, 24-10. Manning, 39, was expected to announce his retirement after his second Super Bowl win, but he’s yet to confirm the reports that he’s walking away from playing the sport.
