Blue Check Twitter Crushes Skip Bayless Over Atrocious Gordon Hayward Take: ‘He’s A Bum!’


Skip Bayless built his career conjuring up fiery-hot takes at a second’s notice — from “Tim Tebow is the next Brett Favre!” to his policy against drafting white Americans in the first round, the FOX Sports host is full of edgy opinions.

While the internet normally just laughs off the trollish sports commentator, after his most recent cockamamie mind-vomit — in which he made a LeBron joke over Gordon Hayward’s disturbing injury — Twitter was fed up with his usual bullshit.

“If Gordon Hayward is gone, maybe for the season, LeBron’s path to losing a sixth finals gets even easier,” tweeted Bayless — mere minutes after Hawyward suffered the gruesome, excruciating ankle fracture.

Twitter responded with a flurry of insults, countless slams, and genuine disgust. Bayless was hit with an underrated-ratio (when a reply to a tweet does significantly better than the original tweet) by NBA player DeMar Derozan and was even trashed by two of his FOX Sports colleagues, Jason Whitlock and Doug Gottlieb.
