Shannon Sharpe just wants accountability across the board.
Sharpe got into a fiery argument with Skip Bayless about cancel culture against Kyrie Irving and the double standard shown toward former President Donald Trump as well as deceased Texans owner Bob McNair.
On Friday’s Undisputed, Sharpe and Bayless discussed Irving’s suspension after he tweeted out a clip from the film Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America, which contained many anti-Semitic tropes.
The hall of fame tight end argued that no action was taken against Houston Texans owner Bob McNair when he opposed NFL players kneeling for the national anthem and said the owners could not have “inmates running the prison.”
Sharpe believed there was a double standard between McNair’s lack of punishment and Irving’s suspension.
“It wasn’t what should have happened! Nothing happened!” Sharpe yelled at Bayless. “That’s what the problem was — nothing happened!”
He then stated there was a double standard the Black community faced.
“It seems to me that they can say things, and their actions, they’re not bound by the same restrictions as we are when we say things or do things,” Sharpe added. “And that is the problem a large portion of the black community have.”
Sharpe then took his attention to President Trump and the things he has said and tweeted about Jews.
“After what President Trump has said about the American Jews versus the Israeli Jews and what he’s tweeted and what he’s posted, and he ain’t got canceled yet,” Sharpe continued. “So don’t give me that if this would’ve happened, if that would’ve happened because we’ve seen in instances when they have done things. They’ve never been canceled!”
Sharpe finished his rant by saying Irving’s apology would never be enough to get a pass from most of society.
“They cancel us, no questions asked!” Sharpe continued. “There’s not enough apology. Kyrie can get on his bended knee, he can come to the people in the most humble way he know how, bow head humble on bent knee, and that’s still not enough for some!”
