Former Carolina Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith didn’t really have to explain himself following his objection to Brett Favre’s dull comments on the killing of George Floyd. But he had time this week, 29 minutes and 45 seconds, in fact.

In a newly-released bonus episode of his podcast, Cut To It featuring Steve Smith Sr., the franchise great expanded on last Thursday’s criticism of the Hall-of-Fame quarterback. Smith elaborated on why he called out Favre for his “out-of-pocket” commentary and, as an extra treat, addressed those who took to social media to, in turn, bash him for using the word “privilege.”

Favre, a day following the guilty conviction of ex-Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, irresponsibly theorized Floyd’s death was accidental. Smith, who implored Favre to “STFU,” didn’t back down from his initial backlash on Tuesday, noting that while he still respects the player, he “knows nothing about being a Black man.”
