Cam Newton has hit the news this week after he re-signed with the Carolina Panthers on Thursday (November 11th).

The 32-year-old NFL star was released by the Panthers after he missed most of the 2019 season due injury. Then, he played the 2020 season with the New England Patriots.

“CHARLOTTE – He’s back. The Panthers on Thursday agreed to terms with quarterback Cam Newton, bringing the former No. 1 overall pick back to Charlotte, pending a physical,” the Panthers said in a statement.

Following the announcement, fans have noticed something strange about the quarterback’s social media. His Instagram is, erm… gone! What’s happened to it?

Cam Newton’s Instagram is gone

Cam Newton is pretty well known on Instagram because he uses a bizarre font on all of his posts that’s incredibly hard to read.

If you don’t know what we’re talking about, you’re lucky. It’s totally weird, and has even caused some fans to unfollow the NFL star because it was so annoying.

So, when Cam Newton’s strange font captions stopped appearing on people’s feed’s, fans were quick to investigate. And behold, his Instagram profile is gone!

The Panthers star had a staggering 4.1 million followers on the platform, which have now all disappeared.

When you try and access his verified profile, which had the username @cameron1newton, you are greeted with an error message that says: “Sorry, this page isn’t available.”

Strange, right?

What happened to it?

At the time of writing this, Cam has not addressed his missing Instagram profile. But, it’s clear that he has deleted it.

The reason why he’s deleted it remains unknown, but fans actually started noticing that his profile was gone almost two weeks ago, on November 3rd.

Many people have only just realised that the account is missing following the Panthers announcement, but in reality, he deleted it a while ago.

If Cam has permanently deleted his account, that means it’s gone forever. However, he could have temporarily disabled his account for a short amount of time and potentially reappear on the platform in the future.

He’s still active on Twitter and YouTube

If you’re missing Cam’s Instagram posts, you’ll be happy to know that the football star is still active on Twitter.

He has 1.1 million followers on his profile @cameronnewton, and he took to the platform just days ago to advertise his latest YouTube vlog.

Cam makes YouTube videos with his girlfriend and seven children and has a huge 512,000 followers.

He may have deleted Instagram, but thankfully there are still other ways to keep up with him. Oh, and if you miss the strange font, he uses that on Twitter too.
