Shannon Sharpe returned to FS1’s Undisputed on Wednesday morning (Jan. 4), but it wasn’t without incident. After being interrupted, the 54-year-old got into an argument with his co-host, Skip Bayless.

On Tuesday (Jan. 3), the three-time Super Bowl champion was explaining his absence from the show when he brought up the former First Take host’s controversial tweet about how the NFL would proceed with rescheduling the suspended Buffalo Bills-Cincinnati Bengals game after Damar Hamlin was rushed to the hospital for cardiac arrest.

“There’s been a lot of speculation as to why I wasn’t on here yesterday, and I’m not going to get into speculation, conjecture, or innuendos, but I will say this: Watching that game on Monday night, what happened to Damar Hamlin struck me as a little different,” the NFL Hall of Famer said. He then turned his focus to Bayless.

“Skip tweeted something, and while I disagreed with the tweet, and hopefully Skip will take it down-” Sharpe was cut off by the 71-year-old. “Timeout, timeout, timeout. “I’m not taking it down because I stand by what I tweeted,” Bayless explained.

The Club Shay Shay host became visibly flustered at this point.

“Skip, let me finish. You know what, go ahead,” Sharpe said, frustrated at his co-host’s insistence on defending his tweet in the middle of him making a statement. “I mean, I cannot even get through a monologue without you interrupting me […] I was just going to say, Skip, I didn’t want yesterday to get into a situation where Damar Hamlin wasn’t the issue. We should’ve been talking about him, not getting into your tweet. That’s what I was going to say.”

“I was under the impression you weren’t going to bring this up,” Skip retorted. “Because nobody here had a problem with that tweet.”

“Clearly the bosses wanted you to offer an explanation, so clearly somebody had a problem,” the former Denver Broncos tight end responded. Sharpe eventually gave up and moved on after his co-host continued to argue.

Skip Bayless tweeted on Monday evening (Jan. 2), “No doubt the NFL is considering postponing the rest of this game – but how? A game of this magnitude this late in the season is critical to the regular-season outcome… which suddenly seems so irrelevant.” Notably, this tweet came after a series of tweets in which he acknowledged the Bills’ safety’s injury and offered his condolences, but the internet quickly chastised the sports writer for his poor timing.

Skip did not acknowledge or apologize for the tweet on Tuesday’s (Jan. 3) episode of Undisputed. Rather, he apologized to anyone who was offended by his attempt to keep the show running normally while everyone was still reeling from what happened during the Monday Night Football game.

Former athletes and public figures such as Terrell Owens, Kendrick Perkins, and Stephen Jackson were among those who criticized Skip’s tweet.
