WATCH: Shannon Sharpe Angry People More Upset About Jon Gruden's 'Gay Slurs,' Not Racist Comments


Following Jon Gruden’s resignation as head coach for the Oakland Raiders, Fox Sports 1 commentator Shannon Sharpe expressed outrage that the final straw for people was Gruden’s homophobic language rather than his racist language.

Speaking on Undisputed Tuesday, Sharpe expressed full support for Gruden’s resignation, saying he had a repeated pattern of using an “insensitive and racist tongue.” Despite that, Sharpe believed that Gruden would have survived the controversy if revelations about his calling NFL commissioner Roger Goodell a “fa***t” and a “clueless anti-football p***y” did not surface.

“When he said this about the blacks, it’s about forgive and forget. When he made those ‘gay slurs,’ when he said what he said about women, that was a bridge too far,” Sharpe exclaimed.
