James Dolan is back in the news, and again, it's not for the right reasons.

Appearing on Fox 5 New York on Thursday, Dolan and his band, JD and the Straight Shot, performed a song titled "I Should've Known," alluding to Harvey Weinstein's (among others) alleged inappropriate behavior towards women.

In the song, the Knicks/Rangers owner expresses guilt for not uncovering the awful actions that were taken against several women by people close to Dolan, admitting that he wondered what he could have done.

WFAN's Maggie Gray made her feelings on the matter known Thursday afternoon as she voiced her disgust on Dolan and his new song.

"I can't believe James Dolan thinks that we're this stupid," Gray said on Thursday's edition of Carlin, Maggie, & Bart. "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 harrassment 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 is referring to the 2007 lawsuit filed by former Garden Executive Anucha Browne Sanders, who alleged she was sexually harassed by former Knicks president Isiah Thomas. The case was eventually settled for $11.6 million.

Seven years later, Dolan re-hired Thomas to run his WNBA team, the New York Liberty, as Team President. 

"You are a vile piece of trash," Gray said about the Madison Square Garden CEO. "You let Isiah Thomas call this woman the b-word so many times she sued your a**, 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 embarassing 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."

In addition to the 2007 lawsuit, Dolan served on the board of directors for the Weinstein Company. He was named in a civil lawsuit against Weinstein, alleging he was aware of the producer's "pattern and practice of predatory sexual conduct toward women."
