Cam Newton Fired By Oikos Greek Yogurt Amid Sexist Scandal — But What About The Racist Reporter?

Published

on

Cam Newton has been fired by Oikos Greek Yogurt.

Not even 24 hours after making a disparaging remark towards a female sports reporter, the brand released a statement suggesting they have ended their relationship with the Carolina Panthers quarterback.

“We’re disheartened by Cam Newton’s behavior, which we perceive as sexist,” the company tweeted. “We shared our concerns with Cam & will no longer work with him.”

It was during Wednesday night’s press conference that Newton made a comment towards Jourdan Rodrigue that ended up in utter fallout.

When the Charlotte Observer reporter asked Newton about wide receiver Devin Funchess embracing “the physicality of his routes,” Cam responded, “It’s funny to hear a female talk about routes.”

Newton continued, “It’s funny.”

Meanwhile, the reporter, who is now being attacked for making racist comments on Twitter in years past, still has a job.

In one tweet that has since been deleted, Jourdan revealed just how much she enjoys her racist father making jokes about native Americans. “My dad is being super racist as pass through Navajo land. He’s the best. Racist jokes the whole drive home.”

It gets worse. In other tweet, she wrote: “The earth moves at 450+mph that’s 10 times triller than NASCAR. DALE EARNHART’S A BITCH NIGGA.”

After the tweets started circulating the Web, she apologized via the social media website, writing: “I apologize for the offensive tweets from my Twitter account from 4/5 years ago. There is no excuse for these tweets and the sentiment behind them. I am deeply sorry and I apologize.”

Sound off: If Cam can be fired for his remarks, should Rodrigue be let go for being blatantly racist on a public forum?

Tamar Braxton Insists Divorce Isn’t A PR Stunt: I Think That’s Disgusting

Published

Tamar Braxton is adamant that her divorce from husband Vince Herbert is not a ratings ploy for her WE tv reality show Tamar & Vince. The Braxton Family Values star stopped by The View on Friday, February 23 and addressed rumors that the split is just a plot line.

“I wish I could say that a lot of times it’s made up, just so I can hide behind the truth,” she said. “But in this situation, I absolutely have no reason to lie about my marriage or the things that are happening in my marriage for ratings. I think that’s disgusting and I would never sell my soul to the devil like that.”

“I have a regular marriage, and in regular marriages, like everybody else, things happen,” she continued. “In my marriage, it was just to a point where I felt like divorce was the only option that I had left. I definitely filed for divorce — that’s not a lie.”

Braxton, 40, and Herbert, 45, share a 4-year-old son, Logan Vincent — and she says he’s their main priority.

“I think the bigger picture of everything is that we have a responsibility to my amazing 4-year-old son, to raise him in the most comfortable, amazing, loving, secure household that we can,” she said, adding, “That’s why we don’t live together.”

Braxton — who was joined by Herbert on air — also addressed the rumor that Herbert had impregnated another woman. (Last month, in a since-deleted Instagram post, Braxton claimed an unidentified woman told her that “Vincent Herbert is having a baby,” and that Herbert had then called Braxton “begging and lying” despite a “protection order.”)

“Here is the thing about people being in your business: keep people out your business,” said Braxton. “And let me just address the meltdown that I had on Instagram. That was my fault that I put myself in a position where I opened up the floor for people to give their opinions on my marriage, and I have to take responsibility for that.”

Herbert himself insisted the allegation was “absolutely” false.

“And all the other allegations are just not true — I’m just not that kind of person,” he said. “I love this lady with all my heart, I love my family with all my heart, and I will never stop fighting for my family and trying to make it be great.”

“Vince and I have been through a lot, and the reason that I filed for divorce was not because of those rumors,” added Braxton. “I filed for divorce because we work together, he’s my baby father, we’re together each and every single day, we’re attached at the hip and it just got to be too much. We just couldn’t figure out how to figure it out.”

As for a possible reconciliation? While Herbert is on board — “absolutely,” he said — Braxton isn’t so sure.

“It’s okay not to know,” she said. “We still work together now. We do work together well, so that’s one thing that I feel like we can definitely sustain and we’ve always been able to sustain, as well as our connection and our responsibility to being parents to Logan.”
