So the NBA fined New York Knicks shooting guard J.R. Smith $25,000 Saturday for posting an inappropriate picture on Twitter. Basically Smith tweeted a pic labeled the “The Girl With The Biggest Ass Ever” which was a picture of a model named Tahiry Jose wearing a thong in his hotel bedroom. NSFW version here. Jose is the ex-girlfriend of rapper Joe Budden. Budden saw Smith’s tweet and quickly responded: “Even the high road ends………” — Joe Budden (@JoeBudden) March 9, 2012.
Smith deleted the picture shortly after posting it online, but it was too late and went viral over the next 24 hours. Smith later tweeted a semi-apology saying “Sorry for my last tweet @TheRealTahiry n @JoeBudden I see y’all will never be done so I’ll step aside an chalk this one up! #koldGame!”— JR Smith (@TheRealJRSmith) March 9, 2012. Smith then made a public apology via NYPost saying “I didn’t know it would turn into a big deal,” Smith said of the photo. “I definitely regret it. Whenever it takes away from our team, I regret it. It wasn’t the smartest move.”
Tahiry Jose has her own website and in her bio section she describes herself as a “bartender-turned-magazine cover model”. Not sure where you draw the line between freedom of speech and freedom of idiocy but bottom line, this #$it is more entertaining than a Charlotte Bobcats NBA regular season. Keep on tweeting Mr. Smith.
We leave you with some of Ms. Jose’s best work:
