Stephen A. Smith has issued an apology for his tweet about Kim Kardashian. 

After facing some heavy backlash for tweeting out, “Is Kim Kardashian a “prostitute”? Is Kris Jenner a “pimp’?”, Smith stated that his tweet was a “clerical error” while responding to a tweet from Philadelphia 76ers guard, Patrick Beverly. 

“Clerical error bro. You are absolutely right. That is being corrected right now as we speak,” Smith tweeted. “And for the record, I don’t think of @KimKardashian that way nor would I ever speak of her or any woman that way, which I’ve stated. That’s for checking that issue.” 

The original tweet was reportedly promoting an episode of his podcast as well as creating a way to address Ray J as he spoke about his infamous sex tape with Kim Kardashian when they were dating.
