"What's the league coming to?!?"

Actor and comedian Jordan Peele is not happy with the NFL and its decision to fine Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer for a single thrust he gave in celebration last week.

Fans of Peele's former Comedy Central show, Key and Peele, know from one of the duo's most popular sketches  the video has more than 12 million views on YouTube  that it is only a penalty or fine if the player gives three thrusts while celebrating.

Palmer was fined more than $11,000 for unsportsmanlike conduct for the gesture he gave during Arizona's victory over the Seattle Seahawks, according to numerous reports.

On Saturday night, Peele responded to the Palmer news via his Twitter account, where he has 430,000 followers.

Not quite done, Peele also shared a link for a crowdfunding campaign that fans set up to pay Palmer's fine.
