ESPN sports business reporter Darren Rovell has one of the biggest followings in sports media. This often results with a lot of people criticizing him in his mentions.

Today, someone criticized him pretty harshly. It was an NFL wide receiver.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Marvin Jones announced on Twitter that his wife was opening up a cake shop. She's becoming a franchisee.

Jones responded back, calling the ESPN reporter a "smartass."
