Cam Newton Apologizes For "Degrading" Remarks He made To Female Sports Reporter

Too late! We all know you're sexist now!

Cam Newton has made a video apology, after getting backlash and losing sponsorships over remarks he made to a female sports reporter during a press conference earlier this week.

The Carolina Panthers quarterback had the most condescending reaction when Charlotte Observer reporter Jourdan Rodrigue asked him about the "route-running" of one of his teammates, and people are outraged. "It's funny to hear a female talk about routes. Like, it's funny," he said while chuckling. What an ass!

Since then, Dannon Oikos yogurt has dropped his endorsement deal, and other brands may follow suit. No wonder he's saying sorry!

"After careful thought, I understand that my word choice was extremely degrading and disrespectful to women. 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," he said in the Twitter vid.

Then he brought his daughters into it to try and seem like he has respect for women.

"At their age, I try to instill in them that they can do and be anything that they want to be. The fact that during this process I've already lost sponsors and countless fans, I realized that the joke is really on me. And I've learned a valuable lesson from this. To the young people who see this, I hope that you learn something from this as well. Don't be like me; be better than me," he continued. "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 hope that you can find the kindness of your heart to forgive me. Thank you," he added.

He deserves all the bad press he's getting.
