Did The Punishment Fit The Crime? 10 Celebrities Suspended From Their Gigs
Stephen A. Smith
ESPN sportscaster Stephen A. Smith was just handed a one-week suspension after his comments on Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice and domestic violence. When discussing the incident between Rice and his now wife Janay Palmer, Smith made a statement that women shouldn’t “do anything to provoke wrong action.” Since his suspension, he has taken to Twitter to clarify his comments about people — regardless of sex — not putting their hands on each other. And he delivered a speech about how wrong his words were. Neither of these things helped him avoid punishment.
