Yesterday Cam Newton took a beating for a sexist remark he made to a female reporter.
While Jourdan Rodrigue from the Charlotte Observer was asking a question to Cam, he proceeded to smile then make the remark that “it’s funny to hear a female talk about routes”

The comment sparked the NFL to weigh in on the unwarranted comment, as well as the Panthers organization. Newton even lost one of his main sponsors because of the comment.
The the incident took a turn after the Panthers organization stated that Newton apologized. Rodrigue disputed that claim.
Well things just shifted in to holy shit mode as people have dug through Jourdan’s past twitter history and found some juicy racist remarks made by Ms Rodrigue
Jourdan of course saw the backlash she was receiving for that, and apologized herself:

She has since deleted the tweets, but the internet will always be forever. This story is absolutely insane. Cam, who dresses like a female himself, was exposed for being a little sexist, Jourdan becomes sort of a hero for women everywhere while doing a fantastic job reporting, then falls off a cliff after her past is dug up. It might be one of the fastest rises to fame and collapses in the history of that. God bless the internet.
