Jamie Foxx Implies Stephen A. Smith Only Goes Hard at Black Players Like Ben Simmons and Not White Athletes

Jamie Foxx thinks that Stephen A. Smith’s remarks about Ben Simmons are unfair and he’s called him out on Instagram on why he’s always mute when it comes to athletes outside of the NBA and “specifically white superstar athletes such as Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady.” Jamie wants Stephen to hit hard at other athletes as he does to Simmons and Kyrie Irving.

ESPN has got the in and out of Stephen Smith always hitting hard at Ben Simmons;

When the Brooklyn Nets announced that the highly anticipated post-season debut of Ben Simmons had been postponed, there may have been a collective sigh of disappointment shared amongst sports fans all over the country. But perhaps no one was more perturbed by the news than Stephen A. Smith.

Three days after the Brooklyn Nets revealed that they expected their three-time All-Star to register some playing time in Game 4 of their NBA playoff matchup against the Boston Celtics, the team conspicuously retracted their intention moments after their opponents took a 3-0 lead in the series. This prompted Reggie Miller to call into question Ben Simmons’ heart by posting a message about the timing of his sudden change of heart.

“Cmon MAN!!! Out for Game 4 when it was rumored you were going to make your debut,” wrote the legendary playoff performer. “This dude has ZERO competitive (fire)…As small a chance as the Nets have to come back in this series, you still have (Kevin Durant) and Kyrie (Irving), all you need is to win ONE game and take it from there.. #ManUp.”

Not be to outdone by one of his contemporaries in sports media, the very next day on First Take Stephen A. Smith turned the temperature up even more so with a profanity-laced description of Ben Simmon’s latest decision to sit out of a meaningful basketball game. The opinionated on-air personality even put a cherry on top by refusing to show sensitivity towards Simmons’ reported mental health struggles.

“I ain’t being sensitive to no damn Ben Simmons,” said Smith. “It’s a punk a** move that he’s been doing. It’s embarrassing.”

To that, Smith’s co-host, Molly Qerim, attempted to defuse the situation by moving the conversation along. But Smith would have none of it, adding one last verbal jab at Ben Simmons, before Qerim managed to change the subject.

“Be careful Molly, [Simmons] might see your outfit and get ideas. He might wear something like that,” added Smith, who was referring to the green button-up top and skirt that Qerim was sporting at the time.

Jamie Foxx who has been on First Take before and does a great Stephen A. Smith impression feels like Smith goes overtop with black players and is more soft-spoken with white ones.

Do you agree?
