Clay Travis Calls Out Domonique Foxworth For Josh Allen Comments

“This is a stupid comment for Domonique Foxworth to say. And I don’t believe in cancel culture, but what I do believe in is everybody being held to the same standard regardless of their race, their gender, their ethnicity, where they were born, what job they have. Everybody should be held to the same standard.”

Clay and Dominique

ESPN analyst Domonique Foxworth had an interesting take on the success that Buffalo Bills quarterback, Josh Allen is having this season. Outkick founder Clay Travis caught wind of Foxworth’s comments and to no surprise, emphatically disagreed. 

Travis, 41, is not shying away from driving home that he is strongly opposed to Foxworth’s view on Josh Allen. He states that he is strongly opposed to “cancel culture”.

Foxworth, a former NFL defensive back, made an appearance on The Right Time with Bomani Jones podcast.

“I am fully aware that I have biases. And my biases are not based on Josh Allen. It’s based on the people that are defending Josh Allen. I would be 100 percent lying if I said that when Josh does something dumb, a little part of me doesn’t get happy. And it’s not because I don’t want Josh to succeed,” Foxworth told Bomani Jones.

“It’s not because I don’t want Josh to succeed, it’s because the people who are telling me that Josh is the second coming and Josh is better than everybody are people with American flags and dogs and skull and crossbones. And if you go just take a dip into their tweet history, it’s some really concerning retweets and likes.”

Is Foxworth referring to the avalanche of dialogue that has followed Allen since April 26th, 2018? 

Josh Allen, 24, received an enormous amount of backlash on NFL Draft Day in 2018 when a series ofquestionable tweetsresurfaced just hours before he was selected 7th overall to the Bills. https://twitter.com/AroundTheNFL/status/989594418754678784

Clay Travis took to his platform and delivered his retort to his audience. 

“Imagine if a white ESPN employee had gone on an ESPN podcast and he had said, ‘I root against Lamar Jackson, because of what I see people posting on their avatars on social media.’ He would be fired immediately. This is why people get fired up a lot of times about me because they want me to play favorites. They want me to change the rules for what can be said based on who you sleep with, or what color you are, or who you vote for, all those things. And I hold everybody to the exact same standard,” he exclaimed.

The Fox Sports Radio host, whose reputation for tackling controversial topics head on, did not mince words.

Travis stated, “Now, I don’t believe in cancel culture. But if a white guy says the exact same thing that Domonique Foxworth just said about Josh Allen, and he says it about Lamar Jackson, he’s fired within five minutes from ESPN. This is a stupid comment for Domonique Foxworth to say. And I don’t believe in cancel culture, but what I do believe in is everybody being held to the same standard regardless of their race, their gender, their ethnicity, where they were born, what job they have. Everybody should be held to the same standard.”

Earlier this week, WFAN afternoon host Craig Carton said John Jastremski — a former WFAN host now hosting a podcast for The Ringer — “shunned” his radio career advice.

During his New York New York podcast Thursday, Jastremski strongly condemned Carton’s remarks.

“I don’t like going here with this stuff, ’cause I know this plays right into what this guy likes to do,” Jastremski said. “This is his M.O. This is what he’s done his entire career. It’s what he’s done for his entire career and he’s had success doing it. He lives for this stuff. But it really set me off. It set me off because I gotta see it on Barrett Sports Media while I’m on vacation. Like I wanna be bothered with this shit, number one. Number two, it’s just tone-deaf, insulting, and flat-out rude every which way.

“Number one: going after people who work at McDonald’s? Who the hell are you to do that? Number two: You’re insulting a multi-billion dollar company where I work. I have a great job, a great platform, a great producer. I have two great jobs, I might add. And you’re insulting both of them. By the way, you’re on that network. Five days a week. And you’re insulting that network. How stupid are you? Taking shots at people of the network you’re on, I’m on. And I could tell you, it pays well. I do ok.

“As for career advice? Guess what? I listen to legends. Bill Simmons, you ever hear of him? Worth a lot more than you. Mike Francesa? My boy Adam Schein? I listen to those guys. I’m not listening to a crook. So you know what? Go take a f—ing hike. How about that.”
