The segment was pretty outrageously offensive before Heyman faking a heart attack, but that is true, this was a bit worse than that. Both were still awful, though.
I just don't really care that much when the targeted person signs off on it. If WWE suffers blowback from the media and/or sponsors then they deserve it.
For people saying "You want the Attitude Era back but complain about this...", this is more like the BAD from the Attitude Era, not the good. So that argument is invalid.
