Stephen A. Smith openly questioned DeSean Jackson on the rumors surrounding his gang affiliation.

DeSean’s response to reports of him being a gang member:

“No, it’s not true. Honestly, where I was raised and where I grew up, that’s the product of the environment [in areas like] South Central, California; Watts, Califronia; Compton, California. Things I witnessed and things I saw on a daily basis, kind of surrounded me around that. Do I know friends that are out there involved? Yes. I try to stay away from it. I don’t try to do anything to intervene of any nature that has to do with negative activities. I’m aware and know certain gang members, but as far as me being affiliated or being a gang member, never have I once been.”
