During ESPN's 'First Take', basketball analyst Steven A. Smith flipped off Skip Bayless in a live segment. 

The two were heated, debating Eli Manning and Tom Brady, when the incident occurred. Bayless claimed that Mr. Manning has less pressure on his shoulders since he isn't regarded as 'highly' as Brady. Obviously, Smith disagreed, with authority.

After viewers blew up the twitterverse, Smith responded, "Will ya'll stop. I don't care what it looked like. I would never flip ANYONE the Bird -- including @RealSkipBayless. Was just talking w/ my hands like that. Folks start nonsense for a reason." 

An errant finger motion? Maybe. Then again he's been on TV for years, with Bayless for years. Would he really make such an obvious mistake?
