Stephen A. Smith has said some pretty stupid things during his time on television but what he said on Monday about MLB slugger Shohei Ohtani takes the cake and he deserves to be taken off the air.
Take a listen as Smith says Ohtani should not be considered a face of baseball because he needs an interpreter.
Stephen A Smith saying that Shohei Ohtani, responsible for the 10 highest viewed regular season games this year and what will likely be the most watched HRD ever, shouldn’t be considered a face of baseball because he needs an interpreter. Kindly piss off

The Rachel Nichols story dominated the discussion last week. This Stephen A. Smith comment should get similar attention this week. https://t.co/0IwV1kpP0R
