How easily do you get offended?

There’s obviously more important things in the world to worry about right now than if Cam Newton is sexist. Seriously? Are you kidding me right now?  Last night I watched the news to see what the fuss was about.  I sat there and watched Cam Newton’s Q & A and then it was over. I looked at Mr. E and said “I don’t get it what did he say that is getting all this attention?”

His intentions we’re not malicious, clearly playful and probably in his eyes true. Honestly I think he was little turned on. (Wait, wait was that offensive?) Don’t read what everyone is talking about go ahead and watch the conference for yourself.

Why is everyone so sensitive and offended by every single thing that is said these days?

It’s a bit crazy and annoying that people just can’t be who they want to be and everything has to be censored. If I was that reporter I would have come back with something also funny and playful. Come on people lighten up!

Take the poll and discuss.
