Stephen A Smith Apologizes for Domestic Violence Comments

Stephen A. Smith

Three days after his controversial statements about Ray Rice and domestic violence, Stephen A. Smith was back on ESPN2, making a solemn three-minute apology at the start of First Take before the program oddly transitioned into a discussion about LeBron James.

“On Friday, speaking right here on First Take on the subject of domestic violence, I made what can only amount to the most egregious error of my career,” Smith said in a taped segment at the top of the show, referencing his comments that seemed to suggest women provoke men into domestic violence.

“My words came across that it is somehow a woman’s fault,” he said. “This was not my intent. It is not what I was trying to say. Yet the failure to clearly articulate something different lies squarely on my shoulders.”
