Skip Bayless is getting backlash from sports stars.

On Monday, after Buffalo Bills star Damar Hamlin suffered cardiac arrest following a tackle during an NFL game, the 71-year-old sports commentator fired off a tweet that had some calling for his firing.

In his tweet, Bayless wondered about the postponement of the game against the Cincinnati Bengals, writing, “this late in the season, a game of this magnitude is crucial to the regular-season outcome … which suddenly seems so irrelevant.”

Among those who took the “Undisputed” host to task was Jets cornerback Sauce Gardner and free agent Des Bryant, who called on people to “cancel” Bayless.

On Instagram, wide receiver Terrell Owens wrote, “I hope you LOSE YOUR JOB!!”

The backlash wasn’t limited to NFL players, though. NBA star Isaiah Thomas wrote, “I hope they fire you bro.”

ESPN NBA analyst Kendrick Perkins wrote, “You’re a sick individual. Real Talk.”

Later on Monday night, Bayless took to Twitter to clarify his thoughts and apologize, writing, “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.”

Hamlin is currently still in critical condition in hospital following the incident.
