Fox News Picks Up on R-Truth’s WWE Raw Smoking Segment

Nick Paglino

Greg Gutfeld, host of "Red Eye," which airs at 3am EST on FOX, has posted a new "Greg-alogue" taking a look at R-Truth’s smoking segment on Raw this past Monday night. The following is an excerpt:

"So, a wrestling star known as R-Truth lit up a cigarette on "Raw" Tuesday night, and now one rage-infested anti-smoking activist is demanding he apologize.

Why? Because he lit up in a front of a row of precious children, who were there to watch two grown men in tiny underwear beat the crap out of each other as opposed to smoke.

Because smoking is evil, as opposed to steroids, violence and satin underpants.

Now this is likely a stunt; R-Truth is supposed to be a bad guy, and bad guys smoke. See my weird Uncle Seth. Well, he does more than smoke, actually, but we won’t get into that here because it’s troubling and makes me sad.

Even anti-smoking activist Patrick Reynolds is manufacturing the outrage that is part of this drama, whining to TMZ, "For him to smoke in front of [children] is irresponsible. At best, it’s thoughtless, and at worst, if he calculated appealing to kids by posing as a bad-boy outlaw, it’s evil."

Meanwhile, the WWE defends the incident saying, "Negative depictions of tobacco use on television are not unusual and can be seen on other TV-PG shows."
