The 34-year-old former Cleveland Cavaliers player, J.R. Smith was filmed beating a protester in Los Angeles.
6’6 and 225 pounds Smith posted a video on Instagram showing the altercation which ensued after the protestor smashed his truck’s windows.
“One of these mother***ing white boys didn’t know where he was going and broke my f***ing window in my truck,” Smith said in a video explaining what happened.
“Broke my s***. This was a residential area. No stores over here. None of that s***. Broke my window, I chased him down and whooped his a**,” he said.
Smith says he released the video to avoid any criticism or claims his attack was racially motivated.
“So when the footage comes out and you all see it…This ain’t no hate crime. I ain’t got no problem with nobody and nobody got no problem with me. There’s a problem with the motherf***ing system, that’s it,” Smith said.
