Cam Newton is drawing sharp criticism over statements in his recent interview with GQ Magazine.

“I’ll let you be the judge. I don’t look at it like that. I look at it like some people have certain beliefs, and I have my own belief, and we can agree to disagree on certain things.

“I could care less you know, what a person says to me, says about me—if it’s not coming out of (his son) Chosen’s mouth.… That’s what the birth of my son does. Like, what do I gain? Now I have purpose in this world. Whether a mean tweet, a mean (person) saying, ‘Hey, you’re supposed to do it like this’—if my son ain’t saying it, then it don’t matter to me.”
