The ongoing feud between Clay Travis and Dan Le Batard has escalated after Le Batard disclosed his plans for a new career venture.
Le Batard, who recently parted ways with ESPN, plans to create a “politically progressive, diverse sports content company” alongside former ESPN president John Skipper, according to Front Office Sports.
On Tuesday, Travis posted a tweet sarcastically wishing Le Batard and Skipper good luck, as reported by The New York Post.
Le Batard didn’t hold back when calling out Travis last Thursday on his “Local Hour” podcast. Le Batard’s comments came just a day after the violence at the Capitol by President Trump supporters.
“Finally our country’s leadership united against the monster because they were scared s–tless of chickens coming home to roost,” Le Batard said Thursday. “This is what was wrought. This is what was going to get here because of everything you saw happening over the last 12 months to us and elsewhere because I’ve got something for that s–tstain Clay Travis, who wants to sit it out now when he was having Trump on his infomercial podcast, Dixie Vodka cheap s–t, just getting Trump to foment this base and then walks away and says, ‘Hey I never said anything about violence.’
“Nah man, nah, you guys did in all your code. I worried about the subtle guys who could do the Trump s–t cause if you were willing to follow that Frankenstein s–tbag to where you followed him? That’s what you get yesterday.”
This isn’t the first feud between the two. Back in February, Le Batard claimed Travis “traffics in” hate, while Travis said ESPN’s cancellation of “High Noon” was “a smart move because woke sports doesn’t rate and never has.”
