Cam Newton is straight up apologizing for a comment he made to a female reporter that many branded sexist and belittling … going so far as to make a video for it.
Cam posted the apology video Thursday evening, saying after careful thought he realized his word choice on Wednesday was degrading and disrespectful to women.
As we reported … Cam told Carolina beat writer Jourdan Rodrigue that he found it funny a female was asking him about routes after her question about that. He got a TON of backlash since, and even lost his sponsorship with Oikos Greek Yogurt.
In the vid, Cam goes on to say he sincerely apologizes to anyone who was offended … and that it wasn’t his intention to do so.
He even made a plea to young fans of his to be better than him and to do better than him. It’s a serving of humble pie at its finest … but we’ll let Cam speak for himself.
