Carolina Panthers backup quarterback Jimmy Clausen is no stranger to controversy, as he had a couple run-ins with the law during his days at Notre Dame. But now, like any good bordering-on-obsolete athlete, he’s using Twitter to fight his biggest battles. This week, Clausen’s main event match is against none other than Supercuts, the place where impatient moms take their kids to look acceptable for yearbook photos. *points to self*
Clausen apparently popped into his local Supercuts yesterday to look sharp for his team photo, which is being taken today, and he was none too pleased with the result. He was angry enough that he vented on Twitter. Sadly, no photo was attached.
Of course, it didn’t take long for someone to point out the obvious.
But shortly after, Supercuts came calling with a formal apology.
Obviously, we’re all on the edge of our seats waiting for a peaceful resolution between these two parties, but I think it’s important that we not rush to judgment about Clausen’s preference for bargain haircuts. Sure, he should know that going cheap means taking chances, but he’s only in the third year of a $4.5 million contract, so he has to be economical. He probably eats Hydrox cookies, too. Don’t judge him.
