Dungy, a Hall of Fame head coach, tweeted out a false conspiracy theory about kids using cat litter boxes in school. He also took part in the March for Life parade and brought up the injury to Bills defensive back Damar Hamlin.

Dungy was back on the air on Saturday, though. While he is certainly entitled to his beliefs, there are many in the sports world bothered by NBC giving him a platform.

"I’m done with Tony Dungy and the way the NFL and NBC coddle his right wing extremism," one fan wrote.

"One thing i hint at but don't say explicitly - and I should have - is that the NFL and many at NBC celebrate Dungy (not tolerate, celebrate) because they share his politics," one fan added.
