Do you think Cam Newton is sexist?

Charlotte Observer reporter Jourdan Rodrigue asked Newton:

Cam, I know you take a lot of pride in seeing your receivers play well. Devin Funchess has seemed to really 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-sticking people out there?

He responded:

It’s funny to hear a female talk about routes, like…It’s funny.

Is Newton a sexist for saying that?

It's funny that a reporter is doing her job? Really, dude?

Newton was exposed as a sexist by finding a woman talking about wide receiver routes funny. If a man asked him the same question, Newton probably wouldn't have thought it was funny. He would have answered the question and moved on. But because Rodrigue is a woman, she gets belittled for having knowledge of the sport.

He even had the chance to apologize to Rodrigue, but didn't. It's obvious he doesn't find his comments to be abhorrent. Newton is a sexist.

If you don't think his statements are problematic, Newton lost an endorsement deal from his remarks. This is not an overreaction.

Has everyone lost their sense of humor?

Newton was obviously just joking around when he said he found Rodrigue's question funny. Everyone is overreacting, saying Newton is sexist when all he did was joke around with a reporter he sees everyday. Granted, it wasn't the most tasteful joke, but he had no ill intent with his statement.

Newton is getting crucified for an innocuous comment. He isn't sexist.
