WATCH: Cam Newton apologizes for sexist remarks: ‘Extremely unacceptable’

A day after Cam Newton made sexist comments to Charlotte Observer reporter Jourdan Rodrigue, the Panthers quarterback apologized. On Thursday night, Newton apologized in a video that he posted to Twitter and Facebook. In that video, Newton called his comments “degrading and disrespectful to women.”

Here’s his entire statement:

“After careful thought, I understand that my word choice was extremely degrading and disrespectful to women. And to be honest, that was not my intentions. And if you are a person who took offense to what I said, I sincerely apologize to you. I’m a man who tries to be a positive role model to my community and tries to use my platform to inspire others. I take ownership to everything that comes with that. And what I did was extremely unacceptable. I’m a father to two beautiful daughters. And at their age, I try to instill in them that they can do and be anything that they want to be. And the fact that during this whole process, I’ve already lost sponsors and countless fans. I realize that the joke is really on me. And I’ve learned a valuable lesson from this. And to the young people who see this, I hope that you learn something from this as well. Don’t be like me. Be better than me. And to the reporters
