Leslie Jones Tears Into Stephen A. Smith After Rihanna Apology

The backlash continues for ESPN sports analyst Stephen A. Smith.

Former Saturday Night Live player, Leslie Jones unleashed some not-so-nice words to the boisterous Smith. Jones, who is guest hosting The Daily Show this week, attacked not only Smith for the seemingly disrespectful words he said about upcoming Super Bowl halftime performer, Rihanna but his hairline as well!

Earlier this week, Smith appeared on Sherri Shepherd‘s talk show. After being asked if he was excited about Rihanna performing, he replied, “Ladies and gentlemen, she’s a lot of things. She’s spectacular, actually. And congratulations on new-momma-hood. There’s one thing she’s not. She ain’t Beyoncé.”

After playing the actual clip of Smith saying that, Jones had a response of her own.

“Duuude, no!! Why would you do this to yourself? You know what, Stephen A. Smith? You need to act like your hairline and back the f**k off!”

She goes on to acknowledge that he did apologize for making that statement later on that evening after realizing he sparked a controversy. Smith went on his personal Instagram page to clarify his comments when he seemingly dissed Rihanna when he appeared on The Sherry Show.

He said, “I want Rihanna to know: You’re a superstar. You’re sensational. You’re spectacular. You’re no joke and you are a worthy person to be doing the Super Bowl halftime show.”

“I apologize for creating whatever brouhaha comes of this. I gotta be more careful, where people twist it and turn it into something it ain’t. My bad on that.”

He ended the clip by calling her sweetie, which infuriated Jones.

But, that did not stop her from continuing to put him in his place for the blatant disrespect.

“How dare you call Rihanna Sweetie!” Jones stated. “You calling her Sweetie like you know her. She don’t know you. But you know who she does know: Beyoncé! And neither one of these ladies needs your opinion, Sweetie. While you trying to save your life in the back of that dark ass bus!”
