On Monday, Fox Sports 1 personality Joy Taylor was announced as the moderator of Skip Bayless‘s new (still untitled) show.
After the announcement, Ben Koo over at Awful Announcing unearthed a series of tweets (all of which have now been deleted) in which Taylor throws quite a bit of shade at one of TV’s most promiment sports-takers.
In a 2013 tweet, Taylor called Bayless, “The Worst,” and said he had “no shame.”
“Dude is a straight up cartoon,” Taylor said of Bayless.
“Do yourself a favor and ignore him,” she wrote in another tweet. “He’s a troll.”
Needless to say, the sentiments she expressed about Bayless in the press release trumpeting the announcement that she’d be working with him were somewhat, uh, different.
I’m very excited for the opportunity to work with Skip Bayless, the top opinionist in the business, and Shannon Sharpe, legendary NFL tight end and Hall of Famer. I love a good debate and look forward to sitting with these two and seeing what happens every day.
So do we.
