NFL Issues Statement Condemning Cam Newton’s ‘Disrespectful’ Sexist Remarks Towards Female Reporter

Carolina Panthers v New England Patriots

After a last second win in Foxborough just a few days ago, the Carolina Panthers were flying high..until they weren’t. And Cam Newton is to blame.

During a press conference, reporter Jourdan Rodrigue asked the Carolina Panthers QB this question about one of his receivers and his route running:

“I know you take a lot of pride in seeing your receivers play well. Devin Funchess has seemed to really embrace the physicality of his routes and getting those extra yards. Does that give you a little bit of enjoyment to see him kind of truck sticking people out there?”

Pretty simple question…until Cam started talking and stated how hilarious it was to hear a female speaking about routes.

 

The backlash on social media was swift, but the biggest came from the league itself when they released a statement condemning what Newton said to that female reporter.
