Jason Smith: "This is behavior that is awful, hurtful, and offensive, and it is behavior that he has exhibited for years. This is not Jon Gruden being cancelled. I get cancel culture, and I understand it. But this is the NFL deciding that the hate that Gruden has spewed for years that they have uncovered is no longer something that they can tolerate. The NFL does not want him representing who they are. These are specific things that he said that were hurtful in different ways. There is no "cancel culture" for this. You can't excuse indefensible behavior. You're either for racism, homophobia, misogyny, and hate, or you're against it. There's no in-the-middle."
