Stephen A. Smith defended the Wolves star Anthony Edwards after the messages between him and an Instagram model he was hooking up with got leaked. The contents of the screenshots leaked by the model were a sensitive matter that has divided the public opinion on Edwards into two.

Edwards was seen asking the model to get an abortion and was repeatedly asking for proof. This had the public form two opinions, the one side with Ant and believes that he is entitled to have an opinion on whether he wants to raise a child or not while the other half thinks of him as insensitive and even inhumane.

Smith supported Ant and emphasized that the conversation should have never been publicized and that the model did it to humiliate the Wolves star and control him using public defamation.

Smith said, “I am just wondering when are some of the laws are going to come into a place where these people like Anthony Edwards and others can retaliate legally for people putting their private messages on blast?… She did it to humiliate him and compel him to think the way she wants, so she is using the public to do it by destroying his privacy.”

Edwards spoke on the matter later and said that he would sort it out himself in private, whilst refraining from making any public comments.
