A Half Naked Tweet

A picture of a woman in a thong that was labeled “The Girl With The Biggest Ass Ever” appeared on  New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith’s twitter account Thursday. The woman in the picture was a model named Tahiry Jose. The NBA fined Smith $25,000 for posting the inappropriate picture on his twitter. Smith eventually deleted the picture and told reporters:

“I didn’t know it was going to be as big a deal as it is now. I definitely regret it. Anytime I do anything that takes away from our team, I’m definitely going to regret it.”

It doesn’t matter if Smith apologized or not. He only apologized because the NBA and his team made him. He should have known that posting a picture of a half naked woman on his Twitter is inappropriate.

Anything a professional athlete does is scrutinized, and they know it. So I don’t believe Smith’s comment about not knowing that the picture was going to be a big deal. He’s been in the NBA for seven years, and he should know what is and isn’t appropriate behavior. Any professional athlete knows that posting a picture of a half naked women is unacceptable. Hopefully the $25, 000 fine taught Smith not to post inappropriate content on his social media again.
