Cam Newton issues apology over sexist remarks made to female reporter

He later used Twitter to post a video apology.

The move comes after sexist comments Newton made on Wednesday toward a female reporter.

Cam Newton received a lot of criticism Wednesday after describing a question from a female reporter as "funny".

In a statement Wednesday, the National Football League called the comments "plain wrong and disrespectful to the exceptional female reporters and all journalists". Yogurt maker Dannon, one of Newton's sponsors, said Thursday that it's splitting with the quarterback over the comments.

Newton issued a almost two-minute apology on Twitter Thursday night, saying, "What I did was extremely unacceptable" and that he has "really learned a valuable lesson from this". And to be honest, that was not my intention. "If you are a person who took offense to what I said, I sincerely apologize to you", Newton said in a video, which he posted to Twitter on Thursday night. We have shared our concerns with Cam and will no longer work with him.

"I think that it was very heartfelt".


"W$3 hat's confusing is, and I don't know what we are doing with this, Cam Newton, what he says gets scandal, apology and lost sponsorship, and what Trump says doesn't even stop him from getting elected".

"I think it was well said and well put", Rivera said Friday.

The "you know, I think real boys fall on the football" line is absolutely savage. "I understand he had a conversation where he pretty much said he shouldn't have said, what he said".

She has since apologized for her tweets.

While wearing a Philadelphia Eagles jersey, the little girl made a video rapidly showcasing her skills and knowledge on 9 different routes, while bits of information about them when needed. She had to apologize for a tweet from over four years ago which had racial overtones. "I am deeply sorry and apologize".

For chapter president Cassi White, she feels disappointed, but there is one positive thing to take away from this situation.
