Shannon Sharpe was not in the mood to hear from his co-host on Tuesday.
Skip Bayless upset everybody on social media with his insensitive post regarding the Damar Hamlin situation. The Buffalo Bills safety was dealing with a cardiac arrest situation and the only thing Skip seemed to care about was the two teams finishing the game.
On Tuesday, Shannon Sharpe was notably absent from the set as Skip had to conduct the show by himself.
“Obviously, my partner Shannon Sharpe is not here today,” Bayless told viewers. “I look forward to seeing him tomorrow.”
Instead of apologizing for what he said, Skip said in another tweet that he was sorry if people “misunderstood” his point.
“His health is all that matters,” Bayless wrote. “Again, everything else is irrelevant. I prayed for him & will continue to.”
Bayless’ Monday night tweet received immediate backlash, with NFL players, including Jets cornerback Sauce Gardner and free agent wideout Dez Bryant, firing back at the Fox host.
His never-ending saga of always wanting to get engagement and ratings has backfired tremendously on him this time.
As for as Hamlim, CPR was performed on him on the field after his collapse. His heartbeat was restored on the field before he was transferred to the UC Medical Center for further testing and treatment.
The University of Cincinnati Medical Center did not anticipate making any statement early Tuesday morning.
We continue to keep him in our prayers.
