Re: Did anyone find Ed Ferraras JR impression funny? VID
It WAS tasteless. I mean, JR has a serious medical condition that paralyzed half of his face, which he got a lot of flak about, considering many thought that his career would now be over because it "wasn't pleasant to look at." Its one thing to make a joke about it behind closed doors among friends, but to publicly ridicule the best announcer in the business weekly in front of millions of people? What the fuck is that? It made Ferrara and WCW come across as a bunch of prejudicial dicks. And in a day and age where people are actively looking for reasons to take others to court and get a settlement, WCW was opening themselves to a huge lawsuit, which was incredibly stupid of them.
I respect JR and his contributions to the business, not the mention the shit he has put up with, too much to find this amusing.
