Dannon yogurt reportedly cuts ties with Cam Newton after his remarks to female reporter

Dannon's Oikos yogurt brand has reportedly cut ties with Panther quarterback Cam Newton after he mocked a female reporter's questions during a press conference.

On Wednesday, Jourdan Rodrigue of the Charlotte Observer asked Newton this question during a media session: "I know you take a lot of pride in seeing your receivers play well. Devin Funchess has seemed to really embrace the physicality of his routes and getting those extra yards. Does that give you a little bit of enjoyment to see him kind of truck-sticking people out there?"

As soon as Rodrigue said the word "routes," Newton smirked. Newton then said: "It's funny to hear a female talk about 'routes.' "

He was subsequently roundly criticized for his comments.
