ESPN's program “First Take” opened with a Stephen A. Smith apology, for suggesting women had a responsibility not “to provoke” physical abuse.
Smith said it “the most egregious error of (his) career.”
You can see the original comments below along with the take that fellow ESPN employee Michelle Beadle took to Smith's original comments.
So I was just forced to watch this morning's First Take. A) I'll never feel clean again B) I'm now aware that I can provoke my own beating.— Michelle Beadle (@MichelleDBeadle) July 25, 2014
