This isn't exactly Carolina Panthers, but I do think it is important to talk about, whether your are an NFL player, or Joe who works at a gas station.
I'm not one to jump up and down and call for someone to be fired or cancelled or anything like that, but this is just a take in modern society we cannot nor should not have, especially on such a large platform like Skip has. Depression and any other form of mental health issues are not something you can choose to turn on and off, it is not something most people deal with well, it is not something we can shelve for later. It is a nasty shadow within our own existence that we must face head on, we must encourage others to face it, we must encourage others to talk about it, we must encourage others to not be scared of speaking on what they feel, speaking on how it makes them feel.
This is not exclusive to ANYONE, no matter our social status, our wealth or lack thereof, our age, gender, etc etc. EVERYONE can deal with these type of things in life, and this kind of rhetoric, this kind of tough it out mentality, leads to suicides every year. Men and women who feel like they have to hide their pan behind some kind of tough facade, have to hide it to not bother others, hide it for fear of loss of friendship or status.
This rhetoric is not okay, and Skip should be immediately taken off the air for this kind of irresponsible and hurtful talk.
If you are ever dealing with a mental health issue, my messenger is always open, and I am always willing to talk it out judgement free. Life is too short to suffer alone or without being able to manage. We are more than just names on a message board, we are all human beings.
