If you were on social media on Thursday morning, you would have seen Carl Banks trending. This is because the New York Giants favorite has left his regular segment on WFAN 660 after a heated discussion with over Giants linebacker, Kayvon Thibodeaux.
Banks was trending in the positive over his decision. While the Giants are struggling at 2-6 at the bottom of the NFC East, fans are still appreciative of Bank’s contributions to the organization over the years.
You can read the tweets below..
Thibodeaux had 3 sacks vs the #Jets but the hosts attacked him for "Not making an impact."

BT and Sal played stupid games and won stupid prizes.
Good for Carl Banks to not want to deal with their nonsense.
WFAN should be embarrassed about this. https://t.co/zOmzt2HkPG

Brandon Tierney and Sal Licata are CLOWNS for kicking off Carl Banks from the show. Can’t believe people still listen to WFAN.

Carl Banks is one of the nicest people around. Used to see him on Broadway all the time when he was just starting GIII. He would talk to everyone and take pics with fans all the time.
The disrespect shown to him by these hosts is infuriating. Good for Carl for taking a stand.✊🏾 https://t.co/aG6KgEb6jv

Someone needs to take a mic away from this man. His outlandish takes really hurting WFAN, his rudeness towards Carl Banks not withstanding.
A true clown imv. https://t.co/vuBaag8RQc

Wonderful to see that Carl Banks stepped away from WFAN. That cesspool doesn't deserve him.
Really disappointed with the direction (nosedive) that station took.

I am not a fan of team employees being used as regular guests. But still, the way Carl Banks was treated was disgraceful.
Not surprising, though, because WFAN has become a dumpster fire. https://t.co/bhAJjsPoXj

The Giants should pull every single player off the fan and never let any of them do interviews on that station. To completely disrespect Carl Banks like that and then have the head of the station completely backed them up is pathetic

What do you think? Are you a Giants fan? Should radio hosts treat their guests like guests? Let me know in the comments.
