Stephen A. Smith, as he suggests, might have to slow down when speaking.
The boisterous ESPN analyst took some heat on Thursday after saying what many believed was a racial slur during a conversation with Dahntay Jones of the Dallas Mavericks on ESPN's First Take. According to Smith, however, he never said such.
Smith -- speaking in his usual loud, opinionated manner -- was discussing Kobe Bryant's injury and the possibility of the superstar missing the Lakers' season opener when the apparent slip-up occurred.
"[Expletive], please," Smith appeared to say in a rather dismissive tone.
The quick comment didn't go unnoticed, as Twitter was immediately set ablaze, as is the case whenever something controversial happens nowadays. ESPN even cut the word from its rebroadcast of the show after the Internet firestorm.
Smith denies that he used the slur, though, insisting that the misunderstanding is instead a product of his New York accent.
BEST OF MAXIM
During an appearance on First Take, Stephen A. Smith appeared to use a racial slur during a segment but later denied that he said such a thing.
How does Screamin’ A. Smith make headlines on First Take? Drop a “nigga, please” during a conversation with the second whitest black guy working for the WWL, Mark Jones. One thing leads to another and the stupid show gets more exposure.
That said, it is great to hear a “nigga, please” instead of Rachel Ray talk about a 15-minute lasagna.
