Cam Newton wears feminist hat pin on Panthers' team flight

Cam Newton wears feminist hat pin on Panthers' team flight

Newton on Wednesday made light of and laughed at Charlotte Observer beat reporter Jourdan Rodrigue when she asked a question about wide receiver Devin Funchess embracing the physicality of routes and whether Newton got enjoyment out of that.

"It was a lesson learned for me this whole week", Newton told reporters after the game. "My sarcasm trying to give somebody kind of a compliment turned in ways I never would have even imagined".

After previously owning up to his mistake, Newton appeared to deflect in the press conference.

Newton issued an apology for his alleged compliment Thursday on social media.

Father tells police he left daughter outside for punishment at 3am
Sergeant Kevin Perlich said officers had been going door-to-door and were using police dogs to try and find the young girl. Sherin Matthews is described as approximately three feet tall, with dark skin and hair, weighing about 22 pounds.


ESPN's Adam Schefter, citing a source, reported Sunday that Dannon would replace Newton with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott. That could raise questions as to how much he truly understands just how "degrading and disrespectful to women" his comments really were.

Newton eventually tweeted an apology Thursday in the form of a video that was almost two minutes long, saying his "degrading and disrespectful" comments were wrong.

The incident didn't adversely affect Newton's play on Sunday. the former Auburn quarterback completed 26-of-33 passes for 355 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions.

The Panthers made a point of tweeting an image of Newton boarding the team flight, with the hat pin clearly visible.

White House "Calm Before The Storm" Explanation Comes Up Short
It's typical for first ladies to be more popular than their husbands, who are called upon to sound off on a host of hard issues. So the reporters were understandably anxious to understand precisely what kind of storm his forecast predicted.


Either way, Newton's message was clear: He wanted to publicly support women and put the controversy behind him. "I did my homework on her and her impact on World War II". He was wearing a hat pin showing the working women from the World War II "We Can Do It" posters.

Mark Inabinett is a sports reporter for Alabama Media Group.

Newton also said, "I realize that the joke was really on me", and he indicated Sunday that he still considers his much-condemned remarks as an attempt at humor gone awry. To the young people who see this, I hope that you learn something from this as well.
