Shannon Sharpe accidentally dropped an F-bomb on his show Undisputed during a heated discussion about the Clippers and Russell Westbrook.
Known for their fiery exchanges, Sharpe and his co-host Skip Bayless discussed the revamped LA Clippers with Westbrook and whether they could win the West in the NBA playoffs.
This led the former NFL player to draw a bizarre analogy between fried chicken and chocolate.
But he got too carried away, got a little too loose with his language, and did a TV no-no.
“When I’m making fried chicken and someone says, ‘I have chocolate for you,’” he began. ‘What the hell? Yes, I like chocolate, but what the hell does that mean?’

Sharpe quickly realized his mistake and looked embarrassed as he quickly covered his mouth.
‘Oops, sorry! You brought me here cursing Skip,” he joked before finishing his thought, “Why would I need chocolate with fried chicken?”
Sharpe went on to emphasize that he and Bayless both agreed that the Clippers were better off before Westbrook’s arrival.
Westbrook signed with the Clippers after being waived by the Utah Jazz in February. He has deleted waivers because no team has the salary cap to cover the remaining $47 million owed to him on his expiring contract.
The move stopped Westbrook in Los Angeles. A local native, he was a standout player at UCLA and played less than two seasons for the Lakers before being traded to the Jazz in a three-team deal on Feb. 10.
It’s not the first time FS1 analysts have been caught on the show, with Bayless previously cursing.
Earlier this week, Bayless accused Mavericks star Luka Doncic of “biting” over lazy calls.

Tensions between Sharpe and co-host Skip Bayless grew over the latter’s controversial tweet
The two also had an on-air bust late last month when Bayless raised doubts about LeBron James – a friend of Sharpe’s – and his injury.
Tensions between the two also rose dramatically after Bayless’ controversial Damar Hamlin tweet in January, when he tweeted about NFL scheduling contingencies in the moments after Bills onfield safety went into cardiac arrest.
Sharpe was mysteriously absent from the show the next day, but confronted Bayless about the tweet when he returned to her show on Jan. 4.
Sharpe admits he’s had “a bad two months” with his FS1 co-host and while the pair don’t have a huge personal relationship, the Pro Football Hall of Famer says their professional momentum is back on track.
