Shannon Sharpe Quitting Undisputed Over Skip Bayless’ Damar Hamlin Tweet?

As the entire sports-watching world sat in paralysis on Monday night and wished for Damar Hamlin’s speedy recovery, Fox Sports 1 host Skip Bayless went a different way.

Hamlin, a cornerback for the Buffalo Bills, suffered cardiac arrest during Monday night’s showdown against the Cincinnati Bengals. He received 10 minutes of CPR on the field before being rushed to a local hospital.

Monday’s game was briefly suspended before ultimately being delayed, and during that stoppage of play Bayless sent out this controversial tweet:

Bayless then attempted to correct course after seeing the backlash he received:

Conversely his co-host on Fox Sports 1’s Undisputed, Shannon Sharpe, sent out this message:

On Tuesday, Bayless appeared on Undisputed and attempted to further clarify what he had been saying the prior night:

That said, Sharpe was notably absent from the show. Fans took note of this and responded accordingly:

Time will tell if this is the straw that finally broke the camel’s back. Sharpe had been growing visibly more frustrated with Bayless in recent months, and Bayless’ callousness as it pertains to Hamlin may have been the end of the line for him.

Bayless is no stranger to landing in the headlines. His wild photos from this weekend are evidence enough of that. This is a guy who greets rapper Lil Wayne by kissing his neck, after all.

But something about what happened on Monday night felt different.

Is this the end of Bayless and Sharpe serving as partners on Undisputed? A final answer to that question should emerge some time later this week.
