Cam Newton Apologizes for 'Extremely Degrading' Remarks to Female Reporter

Cam Newton Apologizes for 'Extremely Degrading' Remarks to Female Reporter”

"I think he just made a mistake", Davis said of Newton's apology.

Rodrigue had asked Newton a question about Panthers receiver Devin Funchess on Wednesday.

"Cam listen up, because I'm only gonna say this once", the video begins, before the young Eagles fan, adorned in a jersey, goes through common routes that receivers can run like corner, slant, and post, while holding up hand-drawn diagrams.

That set off national criticism of Newton, with many calling his statement sexist.

Since making the comments, "Superman" has been at the center of media scrutiny, and lost his sponsor from yogurt company, Dannon.

Then on Thursday night, he tweeted out a video apologizing for his "extremely degrading and disrespectful" word choice toward women. And to be honest, that was not my intentions. "If you were a person who took offense to what I said, I sincerely apologise to you". "I'm a father to two attractive daughters and I try to instill in them that they can be anything that they want to be".

In the apology, Newton said his word choice during that Wednesday press conference was "extremely degrading and disrespectful to women". And I. take ownership to everything that comes with that. "I think that definitely caught me off when I saw Cam's comments", Shanahan said.

To the reporters, to the journalists, to the moms, super moms, to the daughters, the sisters and the women all around the world, I sincerely apologize and I hope that you can find the kindness in your heart to forgive me. "Don't be like me; be better than me", he continued. "I am deeply sorry and apologize".

Rodrigue was back in the locker room Thursday, flanked by Mike Persinger, the executive sports editor of The Charlotte Observer.

Jourdan Rodrigue, 25, a reporter for the Charlotte Observer, who covers the Panthers, apologized Thursday for tweets she sent in 2012 and 2013 that she called "offensive".
