Panthers quarter back Cam Newton has found himself under scrutiny after his answer to reporter Jourdan Rodrigue on October 4th. When Rodrigue asked Newton about Devin Funchess and his routes Newton smiled and answered, ” it’s funny to hear a female talk about routes.” Jourdan Rodrigue later took to Twitter to let the world know how she felt about Newton’s comment . She posted, “I don’t think it’s “funny” to be a female and talk about routes. I think it’s my job”. Apparently million of people agreed. Cam Newton’s comment was labeled as sexist and with that came tons of backlash. Not only did the NFL issue a statement saying Newton’s comment “was wrong and disrespectful to the exceptional women who cover our league” but Dannon, the maker of Oikos yogurt decided to cut their tides with Newton as their spokesmen. Newton has since apologized for his actions stating that he meant it as a compliment. For some reason I believe him.
