After making headlines for all the wrong reasons, Stephen A. Smith is taking to Twitter to defend himself. And we should all feel bad. Because, as he puts it, he is “ANNOYED.”

    2. Stephen A. Smith blames us for misinterpreting his comments.
    3. Stephen A. Smith never addresses his comments of “provocation.”

    5. Stephen A. Smith apologies to Michelle Beadle and any women who “misconstrued” what he said.
    6. Stephen A. Smith clearly lets us know he isn’t blaming women for anything.
    7. Stephen A. Smith ends his Twitter rant with an emphatic “period.”
