Gatorade issued a statement Thursday after Cam Newton's response to a female reporter, saying the Carolina Panthers quarterback's comments were "disrespectful to all women."

Yogurt company Dannon also released a statement Thursday, noting they will no longer be working with Newton. The 28-year-old hasn't responded publicly to the backlash over his remarks, but Panthers head coach Ron Rivera conceded Newton made a mistake.

Newton said it was "funny to hear a female talk about routes" after he was asked a question during a press conference.
