But it turns out that the Carolina Panthers' star quarterback wasn't the only one apologizing yesterday. That's because Jourdan Rodrigue, the Charlotte Observer beat reporter that Newton made the sexist remark to, took to her Twitter account yesterday to apologize for past racist tweets she made that came to light.
And people had plenty to say about it.
The internet never forgets.
“The Twitter posts are regrettable and we wish they hadn’t happened," the newspaper's editor Sherry Chisenhall is quoted as saying in the article. "We don’t condone the posts or the messages they convey. We believe Jourdan is deeply sincere in her apology and regret about those tweets.”
Do you accept Rodrigue's apology?
