Fox Sports host Doug Gottlieb is currently under fire over his hot take regarding Kyrie Irving.

On Friday, it was revealed that Irving was one of the NBA players who advocated for players to sit out the season amid racial tensions in the country.

Irving even went as far as to say that he was willing to “give up everything” for social reform.

Gottlieb saw Irving’s quote and criticized the Nets star by using Pat Tillman, who left the NFL to join the army and was killed in a friendly fire incident in Afghanistan, as an example of someone who “gave up everything” for a cause.

Gottlieb was immediately blasted for his take.
