Martellus Bennett Fires Back At Stephen A. Smith For Calling His Weed Comments ‘Dumb’ (VIDEO + TWEET)
Martellus Bennett just recently retired from the league, so he’s speaking out on various things now without having to deal with repercussions from the NFL.
The former NFL tight end made headlines when he told Chris Simms and Adam Lefkoe on a Bleacher Report podcast that “about 89%” of players in the league smoke marijuana, and they did it for other reasons than to just get high.
“There are times of the year where your body just hurts so bad,” Bennett said. “You don’t want to be popping pills all the time. There are anti-inflammatory drugs you take so long that they start to eat at your liver, kidneys and things like that. A human made that. God made weed.”
Something about that statement seemed to really upset Stephen A. Smith, because he took to ‘First Take’ on Thursday and called Bennett’s entire statement on the matter ‘dumb’.
Bennett got word of Stephen A. Smith throwing shots at his statement, so he took to Twitter and blasted the ESPN personality.
Fuck you @stephenasmith all you do is hate on everybody 100% of the time.
