Shannon Sharpe accidentally dropped an F-bomb on his ‘Undisputed’ show during a heated discussion over the Clippers and Russell Westbrook.
Sharpe and his co-host Skip Bayless, who are known for their fiery exchanges, were discussing the new-look LA Clippers, featuring Westbrook, and whether they were capable of winning the West in the NBA Playoffs.
This led to the former NFL player making a bizarre analogy using fried chicken and chocolate.
But he got too carried away, becoming a little too loose with his language, and made a television no-no.
‘If I’m making fried chicken and somebody says, “I got some chocolate for you,”‘ he began. ‘What the hell? Yeah, I like chocolate but what the f*** that have to?’

Sharpe quickly realized his error and looked bashful as he swiftly covered his mouth.
‘Oops, sorry! You got me up here cursing, Skip,’ he joked, before finishing his thought, ‘Why would I need chocolate to go with fried chicken?’
Sharpe continued making his point with he and Bayless agreeing that the Clippers were better off before Westbrook’s arrival.
Westbrook signed with the Clippers after he as waived by the Utah Jazz in February. He cleared waivers because no team has the salary cap space to take on the remaining $47 million he was owed on his expiring contract.
The move kept Westbrook in Los Angeles. He is from the area, was a standout at UCLA and played less than two seasons for the Lakers before being traded to the Jazz on Feb. 10 as part of a three-team deal.
It isn’t the first time the FS1 analysts have been caught out on the show, with Bayless previously cursing.
Earlier this week, Bayless accused Mavericks star Luka Doncic of ‘b****ing’ about foul calls.

Tensions rose between Sharpe and co-host Skip Bayless over the latter’s controversial tweet
The two also had an on-air bust-up at the end of last month as Bayless cast doubt over LeBron James – a friend of Sharpe – and his injury.
Tensions also dramatically rose between the two after Bayless’s controversial Damar Hamlin tweet in January, when he tweeted about NFL scheduling contingencies in the moments after the Bills safety’s on-field cardiac arrest.
Sharpe was mysteriously absent from the show the next day but confronted Bayless about the tweet when he returned to their show on January 4.
Sharpe admits he had ‘two bad months’ with his FS1 co-host, and while the two don’t have much of a personal relationship, the Pro Football Hall of Famer says their professional dynamic is back on track.
