Wrestling Bosses Attacked For Insensitive Tv Terrorist Attack
World Wrestling Entertainment bosses have been deluged by complaints following a WWE SMACKDOWN tournament, featuring Arab-American fighters, which aired in America hours after the London bombings last week (07JUL05).
Despite disclaimers during the show, urging parental discretion, some viewers have attacked the WWE for showing the event on cable station UPN at all.
The Smackdown event featured a group of Arab-Americans being attacked by top wrestlers.
One disturbing moment featured wrestler MUHAMMAD HASSAN praying in the ring while five masked terrorists attacked longtime wrestling hero THE UNDERTAKER.
WWE spokesman GARY DAVIS says, "We all feel bad about the timing of the segment."12/07/2005 09:15
