Cam Newton Under Fire After Complaining About Women Who ‘Don’t Know When To Be Quiet’
NFL quarterback Cam Newton has been receiving backlash for offensive comments about women he made during the latest episode of the Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast.
The former Panthers quarterback voiced his thoughts about how a woman should act, recalling that his mother and grandmother gave him a “perfect example” of what a woman should be, which he defined as “handling your own, but knowing how to cater to a man’s needs.”
He went on to complain about women who “can’t cook” and “are too loud.”
“And I think a lot of times when you get that aesthetic of like, ‘I’m a boss b—h, I’m this, I’m that,” Newton criticized the “bad b—h” aesthetic. “No, baby! But you can’t cook. You don’t know when to be quiet. You don’t know how to allow a man to lead.”
Many on Social media did not take these remarks well and responded to them on Twitter, calling Newton’s sentiments “dumb” and “archaic.”
“Based on this, I’d argue Cam’s the one who doesn’t know when to be quiet,” sports journalist Nicole Auerbach said in a tweet.
Others defended the QB, saying that Newton is entitled to share his opinions.
This isn’t the first time the free-agent quarterback has been called out for making degrading comments about women. Back in 2017, when he was still with the Carolina Panthers, a Charlotte Observer reporter Jourdan Rodrigue asked him a question about a wide receiver running routes.
“It’s funny to hear a female talk about routes. It’s funny,” Newton answered.
He later issued an apology.
