FORMER NBA star JR Smith trounced a man who allegedly vandalized his car during the protests against the death of George Floyd.

The footage, which was obtained by TMZ Sports, shows the basketball player repeatedly kick a man in the head.

When the man eventually gets back to his feet, Smith delivers one final punch to the face before the man runs off.

In a video, Smith explained what happened.

He said: "One of these motherf**king white boys didn't know where he was going and broke my f**king window in my truck.

"Broke my sh*t."

Smith then goes on to explain that his truck was parked in a residential area in Los Angeles and not near where stores are currently being looted.

He also confirmed that the incident was "not a hate crime," but instead his problem with the "motherf**king system."

"The motherf**ker broke my window and I whooped his a**, he didn't know whose window he broke and he got his a** whooped."

The death of George Floyd, 46, in Minneapolis sparked protests throughout America, with demonstrators calling for an end to police violence.

Officer Derek Chauvin was filmed in the now-viral video kneeling on Mr Floyd's neck for eight minutes as George pleaded, "please don't kill me" and said "I can't breathe", before losing consciousness.Chauvin was charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the case.
