Fox Sports co-host Skip Bayless has responded to the backlash that he received as a result of his comments on Dak Prescott’s mental health.

The well-known co-host of Fox’s “Undisputed” went on air today to apologize over insensitive comments he made regarding Prescott’s public admission of his depression following his brother’s suicide earlier in the year.

You can check out Bayless’ apology here, where he also advocates for those struggling with mental health to seek help.

Bayless had stated on Thursday’s episode of “Undefeated” that Prescott wasn’t being a true leader by displaying his emotions on the public stage. He argued that Prescott should discuss his battles with mental health with teammates, friends and family members, but not go so public with it.

Needless to say, Bayless was widely criticized for his remarks. Prescott responded to Bayless’ viewpoint, saying he disagrees with not coming forward at all with his depression is being a “fake leader.”

“No, I think that’s a fake leader,” Prescott told reporters when asked if he should be viewed as less of a leader for coming forward, via USA Today’s Jori Epstein. “Being a leader is about being genuine and being real.”

Moving forward, hopefully Bayless now holds a better understanding of how serious mental health is.
