After Newton's controversial comments last week, Dannon released a strong statement saying they would no longer work with the Panthers quarterback, who had been a spokesperson for the company since 2015.
"We are shocked and disheartened at the behavior and comments of Cam Newton to Jordan Rodrigue, which we perceive as sexist and disparaging to all women," the statement read. "It is entirely inconsistent with our commitment to fostering equality and inclusion in every workplace. It's simply not OK to belittle anyone based on gender. We have shared our concerns with Cam and will no longer work with him."
