On Thursday’s “Undisputed,” the talking head Skip Bayless declared he felt “no sympathy” for Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott sharing his depression struggles.
It was a take that spurred plenty of blowback, even from the network itself.
“At FOX Sports, we are proud of Dak Prescott for publicly revealing his struggle with depression and mental health,” Fox Sports said in a statement. “No matter the cause of the struggle, FOX Sports believes Dak showed tremendous courage which is evident in both his leadership on the Dallas Cowboys and in his character off the field. We do not agree with Skip Bayless’ opinion on Undisputed this morning. We have addressed the significance of this matter with Skip and how his insensitive comments were received by people internally at FOX Sports and our audience.”
