In fact, the host of HBO’s “Real Sports” had no trouble voicing his dislike of the gun rights group as he labeled them “pigs” who “don’t care about human life” during a new interview with Rolling Stone.
“There are a few things I hate more than the NRA,” Gumbel said when asked about a recent segment he did on the “Eat What You Kill” movement. “I mean truly. I think they’re pigs. I think they don’t care about human life. I think they are a curse upon the American landscape. So we got that on the record.”
Despite having no love for the NRA, Gumbel stated that his reporting was not affected by his disdain for the group.
“That said, I’m willing to separate that this story had nothing to do with that. It’s not a gun story,” he said about the “Eat What You Kill” segment. “So I would like to think that I would have done it, but I don’t know. Obviously, that was my first experience around killing and guns and hunting.”
