Stephen A. Smith called out for mocking Jay Cutler injury
Stephen A. Smith was called out by multiple fans and even his own co-workers after mocking Jay Cutler for suffering an injury against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.
Here is the tweet Smith sent after Cutler exiting following an interception:
OMG! Did y'all here the terrible news? Jay Cutler had to leave the game — after throwing an INT! Awww! I hope he's okay:/). #WasteOfTimeQB

Smith’s tweet made it onto multiple websites because it’s not often you see someone jeer or cheer a player’s injury. Even fellow ESPN employee Robert Flores had to tell Smith to settle down:
Good lord, he might be really hurt. https://t.co/ywWeszXVfW

The only positive we can give Smith is that at least he doesn’t slink away with a tweet and delete strategy. The bad news is sometimes it takes him a while before he realizes he’s wrong, like what happened in this infamous case.
