Stephen A. Smith: German Women’s Soccer Team Gave Up Goal Because They Didn’t Want to Mess Hair Up

ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith joked in a comment during a highlight during “SportsCenter’s” top 10 plays segment of a goal by Norway’s Maren Mjelde, noticing that one of the German players in the wall ducked slightly out of the way of the ball

“They might not want to mess their hair up,” he said.

Smith repeated the joke, making sure he was heard.

ESPN personalities Kate Fagan of ESPNW and “Around the Horn” and Megan Greenwell of ESPN the Magazine both responded to Smith’s comments on Twitter.

Smith has since apologized for his comments, which are not his first comments about women to rile up a female colleague at ESPN.
