Stephen A. Smith issued an apology for comments he made on Friday's "First Take" regarding Ray Rice and domestic violence.

Smith was heavily criticized Friday for comments he made which seemed to imply that some women are to blame when they become victims of domestic violence.

The loud-mouth sports analyst made the comments while discussing Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice's two-game suspension under the personal conduct policy. Rice was arrested after a February incident with his then-fiancee, which ended with her unconscious in an Atlantic City casino elevator.
