Cam Newton is an NFL superstar, the 2015 MVP, and normally an all-around good guy. However, like many of his peers in the No Fun League, Newton has protested against President Trump.
Newton might not have kneeled, but he did raise the black power fist this past Sunday.
“LATER, IN THE FOURTH QUARTER OF A CLOSE GAME, NEWTON PUSHED AND BULLED HIS WAY INTO THE END ZONE, THEN LEAPT TO HIS FEET, BOWED HIS HEAD TO HIS CHEST AND RAISED A CLENCHED LEFT FIST ABOVE HIS HEAD, AN ECHO OF THE BLACK PRIDE SALUTES THAT EMERGED IN THE 1960S.
“IT WAS TO SIGNIFY BLACK POWER,” NEWTON SAID AFTER THE GAME, “BUT MORE IMPORTANT, I PRAY EVERY NIGHT FOR GOD TO GIVE ME A PINNACLE TO GIVE PEOPLE HOPE.”
As if that weren’t bad enough, Newton yesterday made a sexist comment toward a female reporter (watch below)…
Today, Newton has lost his lucrative Dannon yogurt endorsement, per Bleacher Report:
YOGURT COMPANY DANNON ANNOUNCED THURSDAY THAT IT HAS CUT TIES WITH CAROLINA PANTHERS QUARTERBACK CAM NEWTON AS A SPOKESMAN FOR THE BRAND.
