Cam Newton attempted to differentiate between a woman and a “bad bitch” on the latest episode of Million Dollaz Worth of Game, and his comments aren’t going over too well.  

The NFL quarterback, when talking about his upbringing, attempted to point out what the term “bad bitch” meant to him, as he argued the term is not used “to degrade a woman but just to go off the aesthetic of what they deem is a boss chick.”

Newton talked about growing up in a home where his mother, father, and grandmother raised him—which he said helped him learn “what a woman was.” According to him, a “bad bitch” looks “the part” but doesn’t act “the part.”

NFL quarterback Cam Newton complained about women who "can't cook" and "don’t know when to be quiet."

"Now a women for me is, handling your own but knowing how to cater to a man’s needs."

“Now a woman for me is, handling your own but knowing how to cater to a man’s needs,” he said.“Right? And I think a lot of times when you get that aesthetic of, ‘I’m a boss bitch, Imma this, Imma that.’ No baby. But you can’t cook. You don’t know when to be quiet. You don’t know how to allow a man to lead.”

Newton then continued by saying he’s not going “to sit up here and beat up my queens,” adding that he wants to tell men to “start being men,” and that “sucker shit should not be rewarded.”

“When a person carries themself social-media wise and is a fraud in real life,” he said. “It’s more to it. Every person that got money, every person that’s rich isn’t a real one. I think that gets kind of misconstrued in this society now because a lot of people have money but they’re not genuine people.”

As for his comments about women in particular, Newton is seeing plenty of backlash on Twitter, as well as some users who are standing up for him. You can take a look at some reactions below. 

based on this, I'd argue Cam's the one who doesn't know when to be quiet

Sounds like it’s my turn to sound off about men who “can’t pass” or “win a super bowl”.

Cam Newton’s comments were taken way out of context like most things in this age of social media. He was explaining what he likes in a woman, not how he views women as a whole.

We live in a Karen society

I do 100% of the cooking and cleaning in our house while working a full time job. My wife caters to our families needs by being a badass female near the top of her field and our main financial provider.

And I’m damn proud of her.

Cam Newton’s father taught him so many dumb archaic ideologies about women and that’s on him. The fact Cam didn’t bother to unlearn that nonsense as a man is on Cam.
