Skip Bayless got a lot of people going when he Tweeted this right after Demar Hamlin collapsed on the field during the Bills-Bengals game on Monday night.
No doubt the NFL is considering postponing the rest of this game - but how? This late in the season, a game of this magnitude is crucial to the regular-season outcome ... which suddenly seems so irrelevant.— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) January 3, 2023
The Tweet struck some people as highly insensitive. (Perhaps because they didn't read it to the end.) Skip's Undisputed co-host Shannon Sharpe wasn't in the studio Tuesday, with speculation that he was among those upset by Skip's Tweet.
He was back today, and things got testy between him and Skip when he brought up the Tweet.

"Skip Tweeted something and although I disagreed with the Tweet and hopefully Skip would take it down," Sharpe said.
"Timeout," Skip said. "I'm not going to take it down because I stand by what I tweeted."
Then the pair argued a bit about whether their bosses had a problem with Skip's Tweet before an exasperated Sharpe ended the segment.
Was Skip wrong for that Tweet?
