Newton found himself back in Carolina last season, and although things started on a high note, they eventually crashed and burned as it turned into another “fucked up situation” as he described. And earlier this year, he was in hot water over some misogynistic comments he made on a Barstool — go figure — podcast about the ladies.

“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.

“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.

“Now 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 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.”


Somebody needs to tell Newton to stop talking on podcasts, as his words did not go over well — especially since 47 percent of the NFL’s fans are women. His comments were also triggering given that in 2017 he caught a lot of flack when he told a female beat writer that it was “funny to hear women talking about routes,” when she asked a question.

For those keeping score at home, since 2016: Cam Newton has acted like a child after losing a Super Bowl, used to be an anti-vaxxer, said a handful of outdated, cringeworthy, and misogynistic things, and hasn’t been anywhere near as good as he was during his 2015 MVP seasons due to injury, age, and COVID-19 — but yet, he believes that “there’s not 32 guys better than me,” as he’s looking for employment after willingly taking part in two “fucked up situations.”


Cam Newton keeps getting in Cam Newton’s way. And until Cam Newton realizes that, Cam Newton will remain out of the league due to something that Cam Newton probably said on a podcast.
