“First & for most I want to express my deepest apologies to Cam Newton, my entire org, & my coaches for my actions at the 7v7 tournament this past weekend,” Owens wrote. “I did not intend for it to get as far as it did!”

“First I would like to start off by saying my parents never taught me to people disrespectful [sic]. As a football player I let my competitive side get the best of me & it was a huge miscommunication,” Owens continued.

“It was in the midst of the moment & I realize now how a lot of you took it as disrespect. I never meant to humiliate & let anyone down,” the high schooler continued. “I am very very appreciative for 7v7 to even allow me to be apart of the community & allowing me to be apart of the team I am currently on.”

“I realize this can dictate my future as a young man having very big dreams/goals but I will not allow this to stop me from getting where I needed to be. So again, I apologize & hope I can be forgiven,” his apology ended.

Owens’ apology comes after he was seen on video yelling at Newton, telling him he was “about to be poor” and repeating “you a free agent” when Newton said “but I’m rich.”

The 2015 NFL Most Valuable Player was coaching the 7-on-7 tournament through his charitable foundation.

The 31-year-old athlete posted another video of the exchange where he asks Owens about his stats, saying he didn’t care about the joking and rather wanted to help aspiring players.

“People often forget as athletes that are often seen on TV — loved by most, hated by some — we are real dads, real friends, real brothers, real sons, real human beings,” Newton wrote.

“With that being said, when I attend tournaments all across the country with my all-star team, I have given my time, my energy and my expertise to these kids coming into our program for over 11 years and that is not what people want to hear or even want to see, he continued.

Newtown is anything but poor – he just put his $2.9 million home on the market and now is living in another abode with his wife and seven kids.
