MJF raised a lot of attention to himself when a video of him giving a 7-year-old kid the middle finger went viral. This is nothing new for MJF, but the picture quickly became a meme.
During After 83 Weeks, Eric Bischoff was asked about MJF’s recently activity. Easy E replied that he wouldn’t have given that kid the bird, but he totally understands it.
Eric Bischoff then went on to praise MJF for sticking to his character to give fans a real interactive experience.
“My first reaction was, I wouldn’t have done it. But I also understand it. It’s a very tricky thing, because people, when they come to meet and greets…I’ve found that fans really do want to see the character. They really do want to experience the character in real life and in person, more than they want to interact with the guy who plays the character.”
MJF might have to try topping himself next time. We’ll have to see what he comes up with next, but putting his middle finger firmly in a child’s face was enough to get him plenty of attention this time around.
