Cam Newton Takes His L & Apologizes For Sexist Remarks: "I Understand My Word Choice Was Extremely D

  

North Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is swallowing his words. The NFL superstar has come forward to apologize for sexist remarks he made this week toward a female reporter.

Cam took to Twitter Thursday (October 5) to apologize for his headline-generating words.

"After careful thought, I understand that my word choice was extremely degrading and disrespectful to women. To be honest, that was not my intentions. If you were a person who took offense to what I said, I sincerely apologize to you."




A few hours ago, model Amber Rose shared an interesting take on the drama surrounding Newton.






This is why we need to continue to educate our boys.... let's not get mad at him and understand that society taught him to think this way his entire life. That we as women are not as smart as men, that we are incapable of liking or being knowledgeable about sports because we have a vagina. Truly it is not his fault for thinking this way but unfortunately for him there has to be consequences in order to bring change. Love Always- Captain Save a Hoe ✊🏻🏿🏼🏽🏾

As a result of his press conference remarks, Oikos yogurt has dropped him as a sponsor.

The brand said Thursday that it was "shocked and disheartened" by the Carolina Panthers quarterback's behavior and would no longer run advertisements with him. Newton has been pitching for Oikos since 2015. "It is entirely inconsistent with our commitment to fostering equality and inclusion in every workplace," Oikos, part of the Dannon company, said in a statement. (CNN Money)

However, some additional reports claim the working relationship has not yet crumbled.







Coincidentally, the female reporter has since come forward with an open apology after social media exposed a past racist Twitter post she published.
