If you are a public figure, you have to choose your words very carefully, because all it takes is a smile at the perceived wrong time and a slip of the tongue, and you are labeled a sexist or a racist or homophobic. Cam Newton learned that the hard way yesterday, when a female reporter asked him a question about Devin Funchess running physical routes, and Cam smiled then said “It’s Funny Hearing A Female Talk About Routes“. This led to the internet social justice warriors to have a full meltdown, label Cam Newton and all professional athletes sexist, and brought more backlash and hate into this world than ever could believe. I’m not going to repost some of the worst Tweets I saw from internet social justice warriors but if you want to see them click that link, talk about racism and sexism, the amount of hate that comes out of those people is ridiculous. I maintain that if Cam Newton asked that same female reporter what shade of lipstick she was wearing and the reporter said “it’s funny hearing a man ask about lipstick” there would have been no outrage. Anyway, Cam Newton was forced to issue this apology, enjoy.
