A few weeks after throwing shots at the NFL over players kneeling during the National Anthem, the Lingerie Football League is back at it again. This time, they’re calling out Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton for telling a female reporter that it was funny to hear a woman talk about routes during a press conference on Wednesday.

They reportedly released a statement, Via Terez Owens:

“LFL Official Statement: We at the LFL respect Cam Newton for his ability on the field, despite is pouting after losses and poor leadership off the field. Mr. Newton’s recent sexist comment, ‘Its funny to hear a FEMALE talk about routes’’ was sexist and disrespectful as well as hypocritical, for someone who preaches about equality yet conveniently forgets about the equality women seek in sports” Cam needs to start thinking before he speaks. Maybe it’s all those strange hats and costumes he wears.”

The league’s official Twitter account also threw shots at Cam:

 

Even one of the players took shots at him as well:
