Cam Newton Defends Unique Wardrobe Choices Amid Criticism: I’m Not Changing The Way I Dress

Other than his skills on the football field, New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton is also known for his interesting fashion choices. But not everyone is a fan.

Retired San Francisco 49ers player Jeff Garcia shared his thoughts earlier this week and said:

“You go into this game with two touchdowns, four interceptions, you threw what, three more interceptions? You get yanked in the second half, there’s nothing good going your way. Why are you dressing like that to bring more attention to yourself? I’d be trying to ask the equipment managers, ‘Put me in your jock sock cart and sneak me in the back door and I’ll show up on the field and do the best that I can.’”

It didn’t take long for Cam Newton to respond with what some could see as a surprising response. He said while on The Greg Hill Show: 

“You know what’s crazy? I agree with him. And the fact that he’s a former player, he has every right to say that. And until that happens, so be it. But that’s another opinionated theory, and it’s fair to say.”

Still, he said no one should expect him to switch things up anytime soon, or at all.

” I know I come off to so many different people so many different ways, and that’s fine. You know what, he’s exactly right. But I’m not changing the way I dress. I’m sorry.”

He continued:

“I don’t know Jeff, but I would say this: I do certain things because of the culture I’m from. And where I’m from — I don’t know where Jeff is from, and I don’t want to harp on it too long — but let’s just say he’s right.”
