Smith apologized

Whoopi Defends Stephen A Smith’s Comments: 'If You Hit a Man, Don’t Be Surprised if He Hits Back'

By Yesha Callahan, Jul. 29, 2014,

Whoopi Goldberg is quickly becoming an advocate for men who inflict domestic violence upon women. You may recall back in May, during the Solange Knowles-and-Jay Z elevator fight, that Goldberg said Jay Z had every right to hit Solange back.

“I think Solange was quite ready for him to do whatever he was going to do,” Goldberg said. “This is the thing: If anybody hits you, you have the right—I know that many people are raised in a very different way—but if a woman hits you, to me, you have the right to hit her back.”

Now Goldberg is singing the same song, but to the tune of a different celebrity caught up in his own domestic violence comments.

Last Friday, during an episode of ESPN’s First Take, Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless had a heated debate over the Baltimore Ravens’ suspension of Ray Rice for two games. Many people felt the suspension was too lenient, especially since video captured Rice dragging his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer, out of an elevator unconscious.
