Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is being shredded for making a sexist remark during a team press conference on Wednesday. Jourdan Rodrigue of the Charlotte Observer asked Newton about wide receiver Devin Funchess embracing “the physicality of his routes.” That prompted a smirking Cam to say, “It’s funny to hear a female talk about routes.”
When no one laughed and the room went silent, Cam continued, “It’s funny.” Jourdan says Cam has yet to address the incident with her in private. “I sought Mr. Newton out as he left the locker room a few minutes later. He did not apologize.”
Folks on social media have been quick to challenge Cam for his words while others have had his back.

Ladies – do not feel forced into defending our sports knowledge. This is on Cam Newton – NOT ON US. Unacceptable in 2017 to go back to this

Females, unless you have actual knowledge of routes, save your Cam Newton tweets; which proves his point.

Dear 53% of white women, you can’t be Trump supporters and bash what Cam Newton said. That’s not how it works.

Interestingly enough, the reporter up in arms over Cam shading her is a huge fan of racism, and doesn’t mind using the n-word on social media. Jourdan may have deleted these tweets by now, but thankfully someone screen grabbed them. In one series, she reveals 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.” If that’s not disgusting enough, she posted another a tweet using the n-word. “The earth moves at 450+mph that’s 10 times triller than NASCAR. DALE EARNHART’S A BITCH NIGGA.”
White privilege at its finest.
