On his new and lightly watched Fox Sports 1 show Undisputed, sports yeller and real-life version of the villain from The Mask after he puts the mask on Skip Bayless went in on one of his favorite whipping posts: Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant.

It's been a rough personal start to the year for Bryant, who's missed two games and is averaging just 50 yards receiving per game in the three he's played in. That hasn't slowed the Cowboys, who are 4-1 behind surprising rookie quarterback Dak Prescott, a fact that delights Bayless to no end, as it empowers him to take a dump on his football LeBron James—a player he hates because, um, sports.

“I hope Dez Bryant is getting the message that the Cowboy world no longer revolves just around him," he droned. "I’m hoping the Dez cloud is starting to lift off the Dallas Cowboys because these are the new Dallas Cowboys. I’m not saying that they’re gonna be better off without Dez Bryant, I’m saying they’ll be better off without the old Dez Bryant.”

Here's the whole clip of him word-vomiting all over Shannon Sharpe.

Bryant caught wind of the ordeal, responding when a fan tweeted him about it.

Bayless began writing for the Dallas Morning News all the way back in 1978, then joined the Dallas Times Herald three years later. All three of his published books are about the Cowboys: 1990's God's Coach: The Hymns, Hype, and Hypocrisy of Tom Landry's Cowboys; 1993's The Boys: The Untold Story of the Dallas Cowboys' Season on the Edge; and 1996's Hell-Bent: The Crazy Truth About the "Win or Else" Dallas Cowboys, in which he made unfounded assertions about the sexuality of quarterback Troy Aikman.

Perturbed by the "bandwagon" label, Bayless tried to clap back.

But it blew up in his eerily broad face when Bryant dug up this tweet of Bayless' from 2009.

Maybe just sit this one out, Skip.
