A parent used Twitter to call out Bray Wyatt for scaring her son, and the former champ responded in the best way.
Have you seen Bray Wyatt's new evil clown persona yet? If not, where have you been all week? We hate to add to the woes of WWE creative, but it was pretty much the only thing worth watching on both Raw and SmackDown Live this week. If this thing goes the distance, we might well get the Wyatt we have always wanted.
That being said, we are constantly worried that Firefly Funhouse is going to get the axe. There have been reports as early as the first episode that WWE's sponsors were not happy with the child cult vibes the segment has. Fast forward a few weeks and it's main character now has an alter ego that has been haunting our nightmares for the past four nights.
WWE's product has been a PG rating for a while now, and the latest edition of Firefly Funhouse was definitely not PG. That has effectively been confirmed by an angry parent on Twitter this week. A mom tweeted Wyatt to inform him that he has terrified her nine-year-old son. "The mom in me hates you for this," she wrote.
While WWE might panic if they see tweets like these, Wyatt did not. The former WWE Champion replied with a gif telling the mom to "let the boy watch." Not only did it make us laugh, but other parents have revealed that they love Wyatt's new gimmick. You don't need to scroll for long to find parents of kids younger than nine who are excited to see what's next.
Personally, we are unsympathetic with the mom and her terrified son for a couple of reasons. The first of those reasons is a very selfish one. We love the act and can't wait to see where it goes. If it gets axed now we'd be furious. The other reason is the time of day Raw airs. The show might start at 8 pm, but Firefly Funhouse would not have been on until well after 9. If your child is watching TV at that time of night, or even a show that was recorded at that time of night, then you have to expect content that isn't necessarily suitable for them.
