Cam Newton apologized in a Twitter video post Thursday night for sexist comments made to a female reporter.

"After careful thought, I understand that my word choice was extremely degrading and disrespectful to women," the Carolina Panthers quarterback said at the start of the nearly two-minute video.

"To be honest, that was not my intentions. And if you are a person who took offense to what I said, I sincerely apologize to you," he said.
