James Dolan has gained many enemies for his disastrous track record as Knicks owner, but to WFAN host Maggie Gray he’s simply a bad person.
Gray trashed Dolan on the “Carlin, Maggie & Bart” show Thursday afternoon, calling him, among many other names, a “hypocrite” for releasing a song sympathetic to the #MeToo movement after his past handling of a sexual harassment case with the Knicks. In 2007, Dolan helped settle a $11.6 million lawsuit with former Madison Square Garden Company executive Anucha Browne Sanders after she sued the organization for firing her a year earlier because she spoke out about then-Knicks coach Isiah Thomas’ advances.
Dolan, who moonlights as the lead singer and guitarist of a band, debuted the group’s new single Thursday titled “I Should’ve Known,” in which Dolan describes how he feels now about not being aware of the sexual assault allegations against longtime friend Harvey Weinstein. The former film production icon is accused of over 100 instances of sexual harassment over a period of at least 30 years, and Dolan was on the board of the Weinstein Company.
“I can’t believe James Dolan thinks that we’re this stupid,” Gray said. “I can’t believe it took 11 years — 11 years, is that how long it’s been since the Anucha Browne Sanders case? Excuse me?! Somebody who can’t even understand or admit what happened in his own building now has some B.S. song about how he should have known about Harvey Weinstein?
“How about what the hell was going on in your own building? How about a sexual harassment case that you had to settle for $11.6 million against The Garden? Give me a break, James Dolan. You are just such a hypocrite.”
Gray, who was hired along with Bart Scott and Chris Carlin earlier this year as Mike Francesa’s WFAN replacements (before he ultimately returned), took particular issue with Dolan’s song after the way he treated Thomas in the aftermath of the MSG lawsuit. Dolan re-hired Thomas as president of the WNBA’s New York Liberty in 2015.
“You are a vile piece of trash,” Gray said about the 63-year-old Dolan. “You let Isiah Thomas call this woman the b-word so many times she sued your ass, and she won! And then what did you do? In 2015, you brought Isiah Thomas back into the building to run the Liberty of the WNBA. You are a human embodiment of an online troll. People on Twitter couldn’t even come up with something that stupid …
“I might never get back into The Garden, even with a press pass, after this, and I don’t give a crap. I’d rather not step into that building that’s owned by this hypocrite and this disgusting, disgusting human. Yeah, you should have known. You did know. I forgot for 30 seconds just how embarrassing James Dolan is. Never again. Take your stupid song and everything you stand for, and shove it up your colossal rear end. I’m done with the Knicks.”
