VIDEO: TONY DUNGY BEING BLASTED FOR HIS CONTROVERSIAL DAMAR HAMLIN COMMENT AT PRO-LIFE MARCH

NBC's Tony Dungy will be on the air Saturday for the network's coverage of the NFL Playoffs, a network spokesperson confirmed to Sports Illustrated‘s Jimmy Traina.

Dungy came under fire this week for posting a controversial tweet from his account that promoted anti-transgender rhetoric. It claimed that school districts were «putting litter boxes in school bathrooms for students who identify as cats.» This myth has been widely debunked, including by NBC News and PolitiFact.

The tweet came in response to a video from The Daily Wire showing Minnesota state representative Sandra Feist advocating that menstrual products be placed in boys' school bathrooms across the state.

On Friday, Dungy spoke at the anti-abortion March for Life in Washington, D.C, and decided to choose to bring up Damar Hamlin's cardiac arrest, and spun that into a point about abortion.


«Those prayers were answered. Damar's recovering now, he's home, he's been released from the hospital. But what's the lesson in that? An unbelievable thing happened that night in a professional football game with millions of dollars of ticket money on the line. That game was cancelled. Why? Because a life was at stake. And people wanted to see that life saved. These are people who aren't necessarily religious, they got together and called on God. Well, that should be encouraging us, because that's exactly why we're here. Because every day in this country, innocent lives are at stake. The only difference is they don't belong to a famous athlete, and they're not seen on national TV. But those lives are still important to God and in God's eyes.»


This is not the best look...
