Protests are taking place all over the country this weekend in response to the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Situations such as these are often escalated by a few bad actors, using the environment as an excuse to commit vandalism. This was certainly the case with one man in Los Angeles who decided he was going to go around smashing car windows. One of those belonged to former NBA star J.R. Smith. The 6-6 Smith decided to beat up the man, and the whole thing was caught on video.
Whew. You picked the wrong vehicle, sir.
Smith got in a few heavy kicks and a punch before the man ran off. He went on to post his own video about the incident and said the violence had nothing to do with the protests. It was all about the guy randomly smashing his car window for no reason.
Smith has the right to defend his property and did just that. Hopefully, this story is not spun in any other way.
