The female sports reporter who implored Cam Newton to apologize for ‘belittling’ her with sexist remarks earlier this week offered her own apology on Thursday as racist tweets she wrote four years ago emerged.
Jourdan Rodrigue, 25, said there was ‘no excuse’ for the 2012 and 2013 tweets in which she used the n-word and revelled in her father’s ‘racist jokes about Navajo land’.

‘There is no excuse for them or the sentiment behind them. I am deeply sorry and apologize’.
