Mark Jones Likes Tweet Using Racial Epithet to Troll Stephen A. Smith


The internet can be a cruel place.  

ESPN broadcaster Mark Jones liked a video on Twitter that called out his colleague Stephen A. Smith. The Like in question used a racial epithet for defending Dallas Cowboys team owner Jerry Jones.

“I’m pretty pissed off,” Smith began. “I’m pissed off but not for reasons that people would think. I am very, very fond of Jerry Jones, and I’m not hiding that from anybody. Is his record perfect? No, but I’m pissed off because he doesn’t deserve what just happened. He doesn’t deserve it. One report, our report, said he was 14 years old. Another report said he was 15 years old. At minimum, that’s 65 years ago.”

Smith argued that too much time has passed for Jerry Jones to be held accountable for his actions.

“You’re going to bring up a photo of him when he was 14, 15 years old? 65 or 66 years ago? This is where cancel culture gets into the mix,” Smith continued. “You’re making an attempt to eradicate him, what he stands for and all he has done.”

Mark Jones caught wind that people noticed his like, and promptely unliked the tweet, but you know how the internet works.

Jones has acknowledged that it is him in the photograph, but he says he did not participate in protesting the integration and looked on curiously without animosity.

“I don’t know that I or anybody anticipated or had a background of knowing … what was involved,” Jones, now 80, told The Washington Post. “It was more a curious thing.”

Jones not only works for ESPN but he’s also the play-by-play lead commentator for the Sacramento Kings.
