Stephen A. Smith Is Perfectly Fine With Being Suspended


Adelle Platon / July 30, 2014

If you think Stephen A. Smith is all sourpuss about his ESPN suspension, think again. After getting a mandatory one-week ban from the air following his comments on Ray Rice’s abuse charges, he issued a 366-word tweet and formal apology on First Take just before his employer kicked him off programming for seven days. The Internets (and his colleague Michelle Beadle) have reacted, both bashing and forgiving Smith for his unbridled commentary, but the only one who seems to be on chill is Smith himself. TMZ Sports caught him at LaGuardia Airport Wednesday and Smith fully owned his mistake, showing nothing but love for ESPN and Beadle. Watch him speak on the suspension above.
