    Vince McMahon Ripped Over Mocking Jim Ross' Bell's Palsy On Raw

    Hidden Content

    Some people felt Vince McMahon went over the line with his blistering impersonation of Jim Ross in a backstage segment on Monday's Raw SuperShow, which saw the WWE Chairman make a horribly distorted face ridiculing the Hall of Fame broadcaster's affliction with Bell's palsy. Ross suffers from the condition, which sometimes results in temporary paralysis of his facial muscles.
    McMahon's mockery segment struck a nerve with former WCW announcer Mark Madden, who went on Twitter to blast the WWE chief.

    "McMahon mocking Ross' Bell's Palsy was unforgivable. What a scumbag, pure and simple. Just a twisted, emotionally crippled jerkoff," he wrote.

    Madden continues, "McMahon wasn't mocking a stranger. Ross is one of WWE's most valued employees ever. Ross' big sin: He knows more about wrestling than Vince."

    Madden was asked whether Ross was notified of the impersonation beforehand. He replied, "Was not "in on the bit." I can assure you of that."

    Former WWE creative writer Seth Mates pointed out the hypocrisy in McMahon mocking Ross' medical condition while simultaneously promoting the 'be a STAR' anti-bullying campaign.

    "WWE touts anti-bullying, yet babyface Vince mocks @JRsBBQ's medical condition?" he wrote on Twitter. "It's one thing for heels to be bullies and then get what they have coming. It's another for faces to make bullying look cool and fun."

    A follower responded, "the BAS/WWE hypocrisy complaints are old and stale." Mates wrote, "How does hypocrisy get old & stale? Hypocrisy is hypocrisy."

    Another on-air remark mocking Ross' medical condition took place months earlier on the December 9, 2011 episode of SmackDown. After commentator Josh Mathews made a remark about Michael Cole "speaking out of both sides" of his mouth, Cole quipped, "Actually, there is nothing wrong with my mouth, unlike J.R.'s." Ross was not pleased with the comment. He wrote on Twitter, "We can blame a 'writer.' That's cowardly. Poor attempt to be a villain."

    It really is about time a powerful man in entertainment like Vince McMahon, especially at his age, learned what is acceptable and what is obviously not! Hidden Content
    Sometimes the WWE just go way too far with bad taste in things like this, which just aren't funny!
    As we said in another thread m8, some things just aren't on and I'm glad to see others involved in wrestling showing their distaste worldwide, and how inappropriate it is from an organization, which makes such a big thing about their opposition to bullying with the "Be a Star" campaign, to bully people outside of the ring themselves!
    Bad publicity like this hurts the company, so we can only hope they apologize and don't do it again in the future?
    It sets a really bad example to all the kids that watch their shows worldwide.

    I doubt Vince will swallow his pride and apologise.
