Skip Bayless apologises for hosting ‘Undisputed’ show following Hamlin injury

ICYMI: The Fox Sports host has been widely criticised for a tweet he made in the moments after Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin suffered a cardiac arrest on the field on Monday night.

During the incident, Bayless tweeted: “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.”

Bayless later claimed that his original tweet had been misunderstood.

“Nothing is more important than that young man’s health. That was the point of my last tweet. I’m sorry if that was misunderstood but his health is all that matters,” Bayless tweeted.

But following the controversy his co-host Shannon Sharpe did not appear on the show on Tuesday.

At the beginning of Tuesday’s Undisputed , Bayless did not mention his tweet but seemed emotional and said he had carried on with the show after “barely sleeping on it.”

“I apologise for what for what we’re going to set out to do here today, if it offends anyone because we’re going to try to do the show pretty much as usual we do the show,” he said.

“I’ll admit up front that I’m still shook up what happened last night to Damar Hamlin. In fact, I’m still wrecked. In fact, I’m not sure I’m capable of doing this show today.”
