'The Devils Ride': SOA creator Kurt Sutter tweets opinion of Laffing Devils

There is a lot of controversy about Discovery Channel's new reality show, The Devils Ride, but Kurt Sutter, creator and executive producer of the FX series Sons of Anarchy, is definitely not a fan.

Fans and not-so-much-fans of the new Discovery Channel reality series The Devils Ride are letting executive producer Eric Bischoff know what they think of his foray into the world of motorcycles, outlaw motorcycle clubs (MCs) and the structure that defines this brotherhood on two wheels. Now, Kurt Sutter, creator and executive producer of the FX series Sons of Anarchy (SOA), has gotten into the act.

“Watched DEVIL'S RIDE,” Sutter tweeted on May 21. “Probably get in trouble for saying this, but i'm pretty sure my SOA actors could kick the s[***] out of this ‘real’ MC.”

Is Sutter throwing down the gauntlet to Bischoff and the rest of The Devils Ride executive producers (Jason Hervey, Steve Stockman and Daniel Soiseth)?

Thus far, a Twitter war has not ensued, but no doubt fans—and anti-fans—of both Bischoff and Sutter's work will have a point of view on Sutter’s tweet. At least one Huliq reader agreed with Sutter’s comment before he even made it:

Big Red Machine Supporter:
I think i like the ppl who sport the soa colors better, i think the actors are harder then the ppl from the laffing clowns.

And, fans have also commented on Eric Bischoff’s participation in this project, pre-Sutter tweet:

Anonymous:
Laughable. everything is staged. Its more fake then wrestling. The Discovery producer Eric Bischoff WCW, WWE, TNA wrestling expects us to believe Rusty Coones needs the wanna be fake, posers, LD to get a bike back.?? Ya right.

Yura Dork:
Maybe...just maybe the producer (Eric Bischoff) will read a few of the comments here and try not to inject so much of the silly drama and go for a bit more reality. Of course he is a huge drama king...remember wrestling in the late 90's early 2000's? ...all that hype (Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage etc...) was a product of Bischoff.

So, where does all of this lead the on the reality show road? One Huliq reader thinks he has the answer:

Anonymous:
I already see where this is going. Gipsy quits the LD's, starts another club, one that rivals the LD's, those loyal to Gipsy also quit the LD's (most likely the ones who didn't vote for Snubz as new V.P. will join Gipsy) continual trash talk, another major 1%er club steps in and takes the LD's cuts and Gipsy's new clubs cuts!
This is going in the same direction as American Chopper and Miami Ink.

Interesting idea.

Will, in fact, The Devils Ride go the way of American Chopper and Miami Ink? Or will the brotherhood unite once again?

Stay tuned.

The Devils Ride airs a new episode tonight, Tuesday, May 22, at 10 p.m. E/P.

You say "sutter is a FICTION creator. the devils ride is not fiction."..... LMFAO!! SOA is closer to reality than this "reality show". Eric Bitch-off doesn't know what reality is.

The only guy on that show that would make it is sand man. The new prez is a joke real world he would have got his ass beat by now and the rest act like girls crying about a prom date they didnt get. Wait till a real MC Club comes in and takes their colors. Maybe they are the teaser to wild hogs 2! If they are real Gypsi did himself a favor by leaving those losers nobody I have ever rode with would be caught dead hanging around LD

actually the devils ride is 100% fake, they use to be a real club, but patched over and sold the rights to the laffing devils to discovery channel.
