J.R. Smith seems to have come up with a new way to joke about the Jerry Sandusky scandal in a completely inappropriate manner. Oftentimes you will hear people say “pause” when they say something that could be interpretted as homosexual content. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the use of “pause,” Dwight Howard gave us an example of it when talking about Andrew Bynum after a game last season.

If you haven’t heard of “pause” you may have heard of “no homo,” which is basically a more modern and insensitive way of saying the exact same thing. However, Black Sports Online pointed out to us that Smith has taken it to an entirely new level by using the hashtag “#nosandusky” on his Twitter account. Here are a couple of examples:

My Golf event is today!!! Very excited an cant wait to see the kids! #nosandusky

Moron. How any grown man would think it’s okay to joke about child sex abuse is baffling to me — let alone a professional athlete with nearly 150,000 followers. The sad thing is Smith is not the first professional athlete to write dumb things about the Penn State scandal on Twitter and I’m sure he won’t be the last. Some guys just need a babysitter at all times.
