Cam Newton Has Now Lost An Endorsement Deal For His Sexist Remark Towards Female Reporter
It took less than 24 hours for Cam Newton to experience what happens when you are a star in your league and you say something insulting towards the opposite sex.
Yogurt company Dannon has reportedly cut ties with the Carolina Panthers quarterback after his sexist comments to a female NFL reporter—during which she asked him a question at a press conference, and he responded by saying how funny it was to hear a female talking about running routes in football.
“We are shocked and disheartened at the behavior and comments of Cam Newton towards Jourdan Rodrigue, which we perceive as sexist and disparaging to all women.”
“It is entirely inconsistent with our commitment to fostering equality and inclusion in every workplace. It’s simply not OK to belittle anyone based on gender.”
“We have shared our concerns with Cam and will no longer work with him.”
The NFL has since condemned Newton’s remark, but the Panthers organization has yet to release any type of statement as of right now.
