Cam Newton: ‘It’s funny to hear a female talk about routes’

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton held a briefing in advance of his game against the Detroit Lions that will not sit well with any women or human with functioning brain cells.

Well respected Panthers reporter Jourdan Rodrigue innocuously asked Newton about the rise of WR Devin Funchess and if he was happy about Funchess’s route running.

Newton perked up in the midst of the question, then responded with a smirking face: “It’s funny to hear a female talk about routes.” He even made a cringe face at the end for effect.

Here is that disappointing clip:


This was an incredibly archaic statement by Newton who has a lengthy resume of controversial statements. This one wasn’t controversial, just really stupid.
