During a press conference on Wednesday, reporter Jourdan Rodrigue wanted to know how Cam Newton felt about one his receivers getting better in his route running, especially after the team pulled off a huge win against New England this past Sunday.
Cam immediately started smiling and proceeded to put his foot in his mouth by stating how funny it was to hear a female talking about routes. The backlash was swift, from other media members, from the NFL, and especially social media.
The backlash was just as swift towards Jourdan Rodrigue after several Twitter users unearthed numerous racists tweets from her that she sent out over the years.
She eventually took to Twitter and apologized for those tweets.
