During Thursday’s “Undisputed” on Fox Sports 1, co-host Shannon Sharpe called New York Mets outfielder Tim Tebow’s home run on the first pitch of his first at-bat in the instructional league “scripted,” claiming the pitch was “belt-high” because the Tim Tebow story is being “made into a movie.” “This was a ploy, this was scripted. I’m sure in another probably six months, somebody’s writing a script as we speak and Tim Tebow is going to be made into a movie,” Sharpe declared. He later added after arguing with co-host Skip Bayless, “You know it was scripted, I know it was scripted, everybody knows it was scripted.” Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent

A music video uploaded to YouTube early on Thursday calls for the decapitation of former UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage. The video features Islamic State propaganda as well as Black Panthers and Nation of Islam imagery, and was created by a failed grime/rap artist called “Zebadiah”.

The star of the video, Prophet Zebadiah Abu-Obadiah (real name Robert Bealer) – who attracted a miserable 30 votes when he stood for election in South Thanet in 2015 – can be heard rapping with lines such as “Chat shit, get Rigby’d”, a reference to the British soldier Lee Rigby who was brutally murdered by Islamic terrorists in London in 2013. The video begins with a voice whispering “off with their heads” and contains a number of references to the Islamic State including a real ISIS video overlay, and a satirical version of the ISIS flag. The song’s lyrics include: “Farage, off with his head. Tommy Robinson, off with his head” as Zebadiah stares hypnotically into the camera. The music and imagery

FS1’s Whitlock: LeBron, Serena Williams Are Spreading Black People’s Worst Enemy — Irrational Fear

whitlock
Fox Sports 1’s Jason Whitlock, co-host of “Speak for Yourself,” reacted to Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James’ comments about his fear of an encounter between his son and police, as well as tennis star Serena Williams saying she also feared for her nephew in a police encounter. Whitlock said the two athletes “unintentionally fanned the flames of irrational fear,” which he called “the leading cause of misery” for African-Americans. “If we want to demonize police, particularly white ones, by instances of violent misconduct, we will be in no position to defend ourselves when we’re judged by our misconduct,” Whitlock explained. “If it’s OK for Serena to drive by a cop and imagine the worst, is it OK for a white woman to drive by me and imagine the worst? For us, irrational fear is a weapon of mass self-destruction.” Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent
