WATCH: Former Auburn QB Cam Newton gives disrespectful response to female reporter

Former Auburn quarterback Cam Newton and the media haven’t always gotten along.

The most memorable instance came after Super Bowl 50 when Newton hardly answered any questions in his postgame press conference. Now it seems like Newton might be in hot water again.

At the 6:40 mark of this video, Newton is asked a question by Charlotte Observer Panthers beat reporter Jourdan Rodrigue.

Rodrigue: “Cam, I know you take a lot of pride in seeing your receivers play well. Devin Funchess has really seemed to embrace the physicality of his routes and getting those extra yards. Does that give you a little bit of enjoyment to see him kind of truck stick people out there?”

Newton: “It’s funny to hear a female talk about routes. It’s funny…”

Newton goes on to answer the question in an honest manner, but his intial reaction didn’t sit well with Rodrigue, who responded on Twitter.

 

It remains to be seen whether or not Newton will have to apologize for his remark, but many didn’t find it “funny” on social media. Rodrigue also responded to a Twitter commenter adding that she approached afterwords and the situation didn’t improve.
