Yesterday’s biggest sports story was – once again – not a sports story, but instead a social justice story.
During a press conference earlier this week, an unprovoked Cam Newton belittled a female journalist by saying he thought it was “funny to hear a female talking about the routes” that wide receivers run.
Many people, including the journalist – Jourdan Rodrigue – crushed Newton for the sexist comment.
Well, it didn’t take long for someone to find some dirt on Jourdan. It seems she tweeted out some comments that suggested she finds racist humor to be funny and at least one message that used the N-word. And this was five years ago.
She ended up going back to Twitter to apologize for the tweets – and last night, Cam Newton went to Twitter to post a video apology for his comments. So we’re even? This story can just disappear? Not a chance.
