During the Wednesday episode of ESPN’s “First Take”, hosts Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless made it point to call out Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell for the comments he made on Tuesday about the Cincinnati Bengals attempting to injure him last season. Bayless even went as far as to call Bell a “whiner” and said that he needs to just “shut up” talking about the subject.
Bell has since seen what Bayless had to say about him and made it a point to fire back Thursday morning on his Twitter account.
I need to get on 1st take cuz I'm tired of @RealSkipBayless tlkin this & that when it comes to me! say what u need to say to me to my face

As you can see, Bell isn’t happy with Bayless and would like him to say what he did to his face. It will now be interesting to see if the always irritating Bayless has some sort of additional rebuttal now that he’s been called out publicly by the Steelers running back.
The least that Bayless and Smith could do at this point is to take Bell up on his offer to come on their show in the coming days or weeks.
Don’t you just love offseason media wars?
