American football quarterback NFL player is facing social media backlash for his opinion on women. Cam Newton is looking for a specific type of woman, one who can cook and doesn’t talk too much. He speaks without remorse on a recent podcast about how women in our century don’t know how to cook, cater to a man’s needs, and how women speak more than they should.
On the Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast on Sunday, Newton highlighted the role of women.
“I had a perfect, perfect example of what a man was in my life by my father. My parents have been together for 36, 37 years now and it’s a beautiful thing,” Newton said via Mediaite.
“I grew up in a three-parent household. My mom, my father, and my grandmother. And I knew what a woman was. Not a bad bitch.”
The host then asked Newton to explain what he meant by “bad bitch,” which he gladly did.
“A ‘bad bitch’ is a person who’s just, you know, ‘Girl, I’m a bad bitch. I’m doing this, I’m doing that. I look the part, but I don’t act the part,’” Newton explained.
“There’s a lot of women who are bad bitches. And I say ‘bitches’ in a way not to degrade a woman but just to go off the aesthetic of what they deem is a boss chick.”
And this is where Newton could run into difficulty with sports journalists, who already believe he’s sexist after joking with a female reporter in 2017.
Cam Newton made a grossly sexist statement during a press conference in 2017 when he was earning a living as the Panthers’ starting quarterback. The league issued a statement criticizing it because it was so outrageously sexist.
“It’s weird to hear a girl talk about routes,” Newton said in response to a question from Jourdan Rodrigue of the Charlotte Observer about the physicality with which receiver Devin Funchess runs his ball routes. It’s amusing.”

“Now a woman for me is handling your own but knowing how to cater to a man’s needs,” Newton goes on. “Right? And I think a lot of times when you get that aesthetic of ‘I’m a boss bitch, Imma this, Imma that.’ No baby! But you can’t cook. You don’t know when to be quiet! You don’t know how to allow a man to lead.”
Because our PC society forbids men from speaking honestly, feminists and the Twitter mob are sure to criticize Newton for his remarks.
Newton is pleased of having grown up in a typical family, with his father working and his mother cooking, cleaning, and raising the children. These traditional roles are obviously not appropriate for every family, but there’s nothing wrong with a man and a woman playing traditional duties in their home.
He claims that his parents have been married for 37 years and are obviously doing something right. Newton, on the other hand, appears to regret not providing his children with the same upbringing.
Newton has four children with Kia Proctor, his ex-girlfriend. When he fathered a child with an Instagram model when Proctor was pregnant, the two split up.
If Newton were the starting quarterback of an NFL team right now, he’d be getting a lot of flak (justifiably) for his archaic beliefs on gender roles and responsibilities.
These remarks will only make it more difficult for Newton to gain a roster position with any NFL team, especially at a time when six attorneys general have warned the league that it must begin treating women differently than it has in the past.
