The showdown between Stephen A. Smith and Terrell Owens is a clash of titans, to say the least.
This weekend’s most significant sports rivalry appears to be between ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith and former NFL sensation Terrell Owens.
The spark ignited on Friday night when Owens took a jab at Smith by sharing an old clip from “First Take.”
Smith didn’t take kindly to this and launched a scathing counterattack on social media.
“Now… when it comes to this individual, that’s an entirely different matter. @terrellowens, you’re well aware of my sentiments towards your actions, and you understand the reasons why,” Smith expressed. “You ought to offer your thanks to the Almighty that I haven’t zeroed in on the deplorable antics you attempted. Encourage people to inquire of ESPN regarding the desperate maneuvers you attempted. Keep running your mouth. Sooner or later, your true colors will be revealed! #FACTS.”
Smith also hinted that he might dedicate his entire Stephen A. Smith Show/Podcast on YouTube this Monday to shed light on Owens’ behind-the-scenes actions, particularly those involving fellow African American colleagues.
He suggested that Owens had claimed some individuals were more like brothers than others.
Clearly, Owens’ social media post had a significant impact on Smith.
We’ll have to wait until Monday to see if Smith follows through with his plan to expose Owens on his podcast.
