Stephen A Smith takes feud with Jason Whitlock to new level in expletive-filled rant

Stephen A. Smith has been flirting with the topic, but on his latest podcast, The Stephen A. Smith Show, he no longer held back about his feud with fellow sports personality Jason Whitlock.

It went so far as to claim that Smith wrote in Straight Shooter: A Memoir of Second Chances and First Takes that Whitlock was “the worst human being I've ever met.”

“Jason Whitlock, I said that name,” Smith prefaced his rant. “That's not the name I said. I don't usually do that, but now I have to. I'm tired of that fat bastard, that bastard — and I want to make sure of that.” Before I go to break, I want someone to see me, someone to know me, and that no matter what you think of me, I'll never talk about him. Please remember. “Colleagues, I wouldn't do that. This is new to me. But it's necessary.”

Smith added that he called many people, including his pastor, upper management at ESPN, and his family to let them know what he was going to say.

He then criticized Whitlock, referring to an article written in Deadspin that led to the apology.

“Did you tell them that you wrote a lengthy apology in an email to me a few weeks after the same article appeared in Deadspin?” Smith said. “Please forgive me? Point out that I was betrayed by that writer, so you know how I feel that you betrayed me. Have you told people that, you? They. Did you say that?” You fat guy—. Did you tell them that? ”

Smith went on to say that Whitlock is worse than white supremacists. He also noted that there was a clause in his contract stating he would not work with Whitlock.

By way of background, Mr. Whitlock has criticized Mr. Smith on numerous occasions, including on his show “Fearless with Jason Whitlock” on the Blaze Podcast Network.

He also claims Smith has been “appointed” as a top talent in the sport.

“It's funny that he actually knows so little about sports, but somebody made him the No. 1 spokesperson for sports,” Whitlock said on the show. “That's what Katt Williams is talking about. Kevin Hart is a so-so comedian. Somebody can put him in the face of comedy, give him a contract, and control Kevin Hart so he can be successful. That's what happened to Stephen A. Smith. When I went to read it, straight shooterYou can see it everywhere.

“When you read his memoir and listen to the story he tells about getting a 'basketball' scholarship to Winston-Salem State University, it's shockingly ridiculous, stupid, and fabricated. I understand.”

Mr. Smith has given his opinion, and it looks like it will be the last time he takes it up.

“Don’t call me about him again,” he said. “I'm a very forgiving person – not towards him. …I hate this bastard more than a little. He's the worst human being you'll ever meet. You… Come within a mile of his presence and link your arms.”

After Smith made this disclosure, Whitlock fired back on social media.

“I knew Stephen A. had his limits. I didn't know he had his limits this much. I'm starting to feel sorry for him. I hit a baby seal.

In another tweet, he told New York Post reporter Andrew Marchand: “SAS just made a fool of themselves.” “I have never seen anyone at a major media company react so unprofessionally to reviews of their own work or behave so unprofessionally in public. This is what you get. “Your expectations for SAS are so low that this is what you get? Get off your job.” ESPN's source said. ”
