Cam Newton is Amused


NFL¬†quarterback Cam Newton came under fire on Wednesday after he appeared to dismiss a female reporter’s question based on her gender.

During a Carolina Panthers’ press conference at Bank of America Stadium in North Carolina, Newton was asked a routine question about offensive schemes by the Charlotte Observer’s Jourdan Rodrigue.

Newton, in reply, appeared to condescend the female reporter, saying:¬†‘It’s funny to hear a female talk about routes.’ Newton then takes a pause before repeating ‘it’s funny’.
