|Jackass sports commentator advocates for domestic violence.|
One of the controversial figures on ESPN finally managed to get his dues. Stephen A. Smith who frequently gives his opinion on issues other than sports said something that may have seem to be an advocating of domestic violence. Smith seems to be advocating the attack provoked by a now suspended NFL player.
This guy is a good friend of that annoying ass conservative agitator who helped Barack Obama win.
The Huffington Post reports that Smith was on First Take and he let his tongue roll right out of his mouth.
In a long-winded statement, Smith acknowledged a man has "no business putting [his] hands on a woman," then slowly worked toward the conclusion that women should also do their part not to give men a reason to beat them.
"We know [abusing women is] wrong," Smith concedes, though toward the end of his monologue he casts doubt on who, exactly, is to blame for said abuse, given "the elements of provocation."
Baltimore Ravens (AFC) player Ray Rice got in some trouble this month and its finally reached its boiling point with not only the NFL but women's group.

A grand jury indicted Rice on third-degree aggravated assault. This carries a possible jail sentence of three to five years and a fine of up to $15,000.00.
Rice married his girlfriend Janay Palmer later.
Smith is on the suspension block after these comments. This goes to show you that your freedom of speech doesn't merit the right to act a fool on a network.
