Twitter Reacts To Stephen A. Smith’s Strange Comments About Breastmilk: “You Don’t Have To Be A Baby To Like Breasts”

Stephen A SMith ESPN

I don’t know what has gotten into ESPN’s leading personality Stephen A. Smith lately, but I think he might need to take advantage of the summer months and take some time off.

If you clicked on this article, you are probably wondering “why is a sports analyst making comments about breastmilk?” That’s a very fair question to ask, let’s make that very clear.

The commentary from Stephen A. stems from a tweet that was sent out this week by New York Knicks guard Josh Hart. His question went viral (for good reason), and people have been talking about it ever since. The tweet read:

“Have y’all ever tasted y’all significant others breast milk? Asking for a friend.”

He maybe should have ran that by some friends before he posted for, you know, the entire world to see…

The question has stirred up a lot of conversation, mostly about how weird it is to ask that question. It happened in the sports world, and since it did, Stephen A. Smith is contractually obligated to talk about it. I say that as a joke, but there’s probably around a 70% chance that it’s actually true.

In the highly knowledgeable sports personality’s podcast Know Mercy Podcast with Stephen A. Smith, he finally addressed the viral Josh Hart tweet and gave his two cents:

“Now, I’ve never been inclined to try breast milk. I like breasts. You don’t have to be a baby to like breasts.

Matter of fact, one could easily argue there are adults who like breasts more than babies.”

How does ESPN keep letting this stuff pass through? He kind of got sidetracked there. I asked the same question when Stephen A. drooled over Martha Stewart’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover.

Smith went on to add:

“Breast milk is a different matter. He (Hart) asked that question and I’m like ‘damn, damn Josh, what the hell?’

Josh Hart is a weird one, but he is somebody I hope remains a New York Knick.”

Smith, who is always partial to the Knicks, was willing to overlook Hart’s strange question as long as he continues to knock down big three pointers for his favorite team. Sports fandom at its finest.

At one point in the below clip, Stephen A. throws it to a Dave Chappelle skit that 1) made him laugh and 2) might help to explain Hart’s viral social media moment.


As you might imagine, the comments and reactions underneath all of the already funny “breastmilk” tweets were hilarious, and I gathered the best of the best below:
