When you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything. That's the message Skip Bayless should've remembered during Damar Hamlin's collapse.

Skip Bayless Finds New Low with Classless Tweet Following Damar Hamlin's On-Field Collapse

Skip Bayless has been in the business long enough to know better than to push send on a classless tweet following the shocking events that transpired in Cincinnati during the Bills-Bengals Monday Night Football game. Seriously. There's poking the bear and pushing the envelope, but Bayless was so incredibly in the wrong that it's takes a shocking lack of awareness to think this tweet was a good idea.

Skip Bayless' Horrible Tweet During Bills-Bengals Injury

This tweet, sent while Hamlin was being transit to a local Cincinnati hospital, has to be the lowest point of Skip Bayless' career. While Hamlin lay on the field, unable to breathe on his own, with 10 trainers from both teams working on him, Skip was fuming about how the game's suspension would affect the NFL playoff picture. "This late in the season, a game of this magnitude is crucial to the regular-season outcome." Things that are also crucial in this moment in time? The Bills players worrying about their teammate, who just left the stadium in an ambulance being escorted by the police.

This is some "rub some dirt on it and get back in there" nonsense right here. This is why Tua Tagovailoa was sent back out onto the field after he had obviously sustained a concussion against the Bills. This is the exact thing we all feared we saw when he went down in Week 4, in almost the exact same spot on the field in Cincinnati as Hamlin. "Do these not understand how important this game is?" Do you not understand the gravity of the situation unfolding in front of millions of people on live TV, Skip?

I could go on for hours about insanely dumb that tweet was and how incredibly tone-deaf it was to think about anything other than Damar Hamlin's well-being in that moment. Luckily for you, I don't have to. In fact, I can hand things over to Hamlin's fellow NFL players to let them chime in. Let's let them have the last word and then like ESPN's Ryan Clark have the mic drop moment.
