Jason Whitlock is enduring a challenging week, repeatedly facing criticism from former colleagues and peers for his outspoken remarks. Most recently, he found himself on the receiving end of a verbal onslaught from his former ESPN colleague, Stephen A. Smith.
After Whitlock questioned Stephen A. Smith’s athletic achievements mentioned in his autobiography, Smith unleashed a profanity-laden tirade on his YouTube show, where censorship constraints were not in effect.
Whitlock responded with a cartoon meme depicting himself as the Austin Powers character, humorously suggesting that Stephen A. Smith is preoccupied with thoughts of Whitlock.
While the meme implies that Whitlock lives rent-free in Smith’s mind, it’s evident that this is not the case.
Adding to the fray, Tyreek Hill joined the conversation with a tweet, humorously advising Whitlock to focus on commenting about snacks rather than anything else.
Regrettably, the feud has become centered around Jason Whitlock’s weight, stemming from his initial scrutiny of Stephen A. Smith’s athletic claims in his autobiography. Despite the focus on physique and athleticism, Whitlock has gained almost 2,500 new followers in the past 48 hours, leveraging the exposure from his ongoing conflicts with Stephen A. Smith and Tyreek Hill.
