American football quarterback Cam Newton is under fire on social media for his alleged sexist and misogynistic comments in a recent podcast/interview where he complains about women who can’t cook. The 33-year-old NFL star who is currently a free agent in a recent podcast called “MILLION DOLLAZ WORTH OF GAME” had some supposed not-so-pleasant opinions about women and their “roles.” The quarterback, when asked about his upbringing and family, spoke about growing up in a three-parent household: his mother, father and grandmother.
Episode 161 of the podcast which originally aired on Sunday featured Cam Newton and he had plenty to say about what it was like growing up in a traditional family.
“I had a perfect, a perfect example of what a man was in my life by my father. My parent has been together for 36,37 years now, and it’s a beautiful thing, uh, I grew up in a three-parent household, my mom, my father and my grandmother and uh I knew what a woman was, not a bad b#tch.” This was his reply to the host asking him about his upbringing.
“Okay, so what’s the difference,” one of the hosts @wallo267 asked in response to his “bad bitch” comment. Newton responded by saying a bad b#tch was someone who “looked the part” but does not “act the part.” He clarifies that he is not trying to degrade women by saying “b#tches.”
“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 like ‘I’m a boss b#tch, I’m a this, I’m a that,’ no baby, but you can’t cook. You don’t when to be quiet, you don’t know how to allow a man lead.” He continued. He says men should be men and that he wasn’t trying to, in his words “sit up here and beat up my queens”
This apparently isn’t Newton’s first time being called out for his opinions and remarks about women. In 2017 he laughed at a female reporter’s question at a press conference saying, “It’s funny to hear a female talk about routes”. He later apologized for his comment but it cost him a sponsorship with Oiko’s Yoghurt.
While some seemed to be angry at Newton’s comments, some seemed to be in support as they try to defend the NFL quarterback. Here are a few reactions from Twitter:
based on this, I’d argue Cam’s the one who doesn’t know when to be quiet https://t.co/rT6kT1BQf0

Cam Newton said nothing wrong… I'm so tired of ya'll condemning other folks options and calling it outdated cause they can't cook and won't let a man lead…

Cam Newton’s comments were taken way out of context like most things in this age of social media. He was explaining what he likes in a woman, not how he views women as a whole.
We live in a Karen society
