This is why we love J.R. Smith. Not only does he hit clutch shots for the Cleveland Cavaliers, set the standard for entertaining social media, but he also has a knack to keep it real whether or not it causes a media firestorm.
Earlier this morning Smith displayed that raw realness when he took to Instagram to shout out Akon for supplying over 600 million Africans with electricity–seriously big ups to Akon–a great achievement. Where Smith did slip up is what he said about
Bruce Caitlyn Jenner. This is what Smith had to say on Instagram:
Shout out to Akon ! He is about to supply 600 million africans with solar power. Im really upset that this isnt major news but that science project bruce jenner is #Society
Yikes. I’m not going to knock him for his thoughts, but for the love of intelligence tell that to your friends and not on social media, especially with the NBA Finals starting tomorrow. The post has been taken down, but clearly the damage has been done. Expect LeBron James and Cavs brass to give Smith a stern warning at practice.
