JR Smith has allegedly beat up a male protestor for damaging his truck.
The former Cleveland Cavaliers player was seen on video kicking and punching the man as he tried to get up off of the ground.
Smith would go to address the incident in a statement and claim that the fight was not based on the man’s race.
“This ain’t no hate crime. I ain’t got no problem with nobody who ain’t got no problem with me. It’s a problem with the motherf***ing system. That’s it.”
Earlier today,(Monday, June 1st), Smith also addressed the vandalism and looting during his interview on The Pat McAfee Show. “You want to peacefully protest, a hundred percent, we can do that all day. But once you get to vandalizing people’s personal property that has nothing to do with nothing and a hundred percent, honestly, I’m the only black person on this corner.”
