Cam Newton Claims His Comment Was ‘Sarcasm’ & Meant As a Compliment To Female Reporter (VIDEO)
After delivering a heartfelt apology via social media on Thursday, the initial outrage was finally starting to die down and people were starting to move on slowly from Cam’s sexist comments. Then, Cam went and put his foot in his mouth again by speaking on it at a press conference on Sunday.
Following the Panthers’ win over the Detroit Lions, reporters wanted to know more about what he said to that reporter last Wednesday. Instead of just bypassing the question and sticking to the win, Cam went and made things worse.
Cam on comments: “Lesson learned for me… my sarcasm trying to give someone a compliment turned in ways I never would have imaged…”
