Is Cam Newton Sexist? QB1 Says Women Should Cook, Be Quiet, & Let A Man Lead

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Cam Newton says some women don’t know when to be quiet. And now people are wondering if maybe it’s Cam who needs the lesson on being quiet? The quarterback is under fire for what he said during a podcast called Million Dollaz Worth Of Game over the weekend.

During the episode, Newton talked about being raised in a 3 parent home with his mother, father, and grandmother. The 2015 MVP then went on to share his thoughts about how women should act. Newton said, “A woman, for me, is handling your own, but knowing how to cater to a man’s needs. Right? And I think a lot of times when you get that aesthetic of, ‘I’m a boss (bleep). I’m a this, I’m a that.’ Like, no baby. But you can’t cook. You don’t know when to be quiet. You don’t know how to let a man lead.”

Cam’s no stranger to sexist comments. In 2017, he told then-local sports reporter Jourdan Rodrigue, “It’s funny to hear a female talk about routes.” The Charlotte Observer columnist Scott Fowler has covered Cam since he was drafted by the Panthers back in 2011. Fowler tells WCC, “It seems to me that Cam Newton‘s mind, in terms of females, is stuck in 1952 not 2022.” Fowler continues, “He’s looking for a job, I do not think this will make it any easier.”

Our question of the night: is Cam Newton sexist?
