NFL star Cam Newton came under fire on social media Monday for comments he made about women.

Newton appeared on the “Million Dollaz Worth of Game” podcast on Sunday. The veteran quarterback was asked about his upbringing toward the beginning of the show, and he started to talk about his family and how he was raised by the “perfect example of what a man was” in his father.

Newton said he didn’t want to sit behind the mic and criticize women but wanted the “men to start being men.”

“That sucka s— should not be rewarded,” he said. “When a person carries himself, social media wise, and it’s a fraud in real life. Every person who got money, every person who’s rich isn’t a real one, and I think that kinda gets misconstrued in this society now because a lot of people have money, but they’re not genuine people.”

His remarks irked NFL fans on social media.

Newton is currently an unrestricted free agent. He re-joined the Carolina Panthers in the middle of the 2021 season after a few injuries left the team’s quarterback situation in peril.
