Bill Romanowski Apologizes For Calling Cam Newton A ‘Boy’ On Twitter
Once again, classic overreaction from people due to Cam Newton’s attitude after the game. I’m not sure how you’re supposed to feel if you just lost the biggest game of the season. Could Cam have handled it better? Absolutely. Does that warrant him being called a ‘boy’ as former NFL player Bill Romanowski called him yesterday on Twitter? Hell no.
I don’t expect many to understand why calling a black man ‘boy’ in the context that Romanowski used it is a horrible thing to do. There’s a long history behind that word and how it was used & that it why many are upset & rightfully so.
After the backlash, Romanowski deleted the tweet and tweeted an apology.
I apologize for that remark ‘boy’. It was not intentional or even trying to disrespect others. Peace everyone.
