Stephen A. Smith: T.O. texted me, 'You have no idea what you're talking about' on Kaepernick

USA Today Sports 2 weeks ago

Terrell Owens, who ended his Pro Football Hall of Fame career in the National Football League with the Cincinnati Bengals in 2010, is among those criticizing Stephen A. Smith for his suggestion that Colin Kaepernick "doesn't want to play football, he wants to be a martyr," the co-host of ESPN's "First Take" said Tuesday.

"T.O. — Terrell Owens — just sent me a text. 'You have no idea what you're talking about. You're quick to bash. That's why people say what they say about you.' Even T.O. is on my case right now. You know, I will respond to him and all the folks that feel the way that they feel in just a second. Because there's a whole lot of people that are coming at me with emotion. I'm going to come at folks with facts," Smith said Tuesday on the show.

After a commercial break, Smith defended his stance with a video from "First Take," via his Twitter account.

Not included in the video were the remarks he directed at Owens:

T.O. sends me a damn text just now. T.O.! How many times have I come to the defense of Terrell Owens? OK? How many times have I talked about how unfairly he has been maligned? How people have insulted him? How this man deserved to be a first-ballot Hall of Famer? But by the way, T.O. wasn't asking to go to the Hall of Fame ceremony or anything like that. T.O. — Terrell Owens ... was maligned unnecessarily and unfairly, and I pointed that out.
