Mike Eps does not shy away from it Shannon Sharpe‘s apparent threat that the streets aren’t safe for him… this, after the comic recently took some big shots at the HOF’er.
In response to the SS’s recent tirade against him on his podcast with Chad OchoCino — in which Shannon claimed Mike lied about his name (more on this later) — ME himself jumped online on Monday to discuss it… clarifying who contacted who, and what the deal is.
ICYMI… Mike did a stand-up set about a week ago where he made fun of Shannon and his viral “Club Shay Shay” interviews lately, specifically the Cat Williams An. In his set, Mike said Shannon contacted him for a follow-up conversation – and then made some homophobic jokes at Shannon’s expense… all of which got Shannon’s attention/anger.
On Sunday – while taping his capsule with Chad – Shannon talked about Mike without ever mentioning him by name – saying the gay jokes didn’t bother him… but the “lying,” as he put it, did. He suggested he would confront Mike about this soon, and perhaps more.
Welp, Mike now has a response to Shannon… explaining that he DMed Shannon in the wake of Katt’s now infamous interview – in which Mike says he felt like Shannon tried to get KW to trash his former “Friday” costar, even though he never did.
Mike says he thinks Shannon is trying to get people to say crazy things about others just for a few clicks – and on the matter of hooking up… ME says they can do that too.
Now he does notice that he doesn’t fight anymore – so it doesn’t sound like he wants to get physical with the former tight end (honestly, no one does)… but he continues to taunt the SS.
BTW…Mike has a few shots for Shannon’s pod partner, Chad, and a few more insults.
Mike and Shannon will cross paths next weekend during the 2024 NBA All-Star Weekend… which happens to be in Mike’s hometown of Indianapolis. So… things happen.
I hope these guys can play nice and solve their problems with words… and not fists.
