You can watch a video of the insane beating below.

In case you were wondering whether or not Smith, who last played for the Cleveland Cavaliers, felt bad about the street justice he doled out, I can promise you he’s fine with his decisions.

In what appeared to be a social media livestream, he told his fans, “One of these little motherf***ing white boys didn’t know where he was going, and broke my f**king window in my truck … I chased him down and whooped his ass.”

You can watch and listen to his full explanation below. It’s incredible.

Folks, if you play stupid games, then you are going to win stupid prizes. Believe it or not, people don’t like their stuff being destroyed.

While I don’t encourage or condone violence, I do 100% support people defending their property. You know how you avoid getting your ass kicked by a gigantic NBA star?

You don’t participate in riots and smash car windows. It’s that simple.

I can’t imagine what was going through that rioter’s head. He probably thought he was ‘Billy badass’ smashing up windows.

His attitude probably changed quickly when a pro athlete showed up to deal with the situation. That’ll get you to shift your attitude real fast.

I think we all learned a valuable lesson here. If you mess with J.R. Smith’s stuff, he will beat you into next week.
