Video: Cam Newton Getting Crushed For Sexist Comment During Press Conference

The star quarterback is under fire this afternoon.

On Wednesday afternoon, Cam Newton spoke with reporters after practice.

During the press conference, Newton was asked a line of questioning about the team's performance against New England.

It was his response to one specific question that is making headlines.

A female reporter asked Newton about the success of wide receiver Devin Funchess.

Cam I know you take a lot of pride in your receivers playing well. Devin Funchess has embraced the physicality of his routes, and getting those extra yards.

Does that give your a little bit of enjoyment to see him truck-sticking people out there?

Newton responded by saying: "It's funny to hear a female talk about routes."

Cam Newton's response to this question quickly went viral, with many trashing the star quarterback's comments.
