McMahon's mockery segment struck a nerve with former WCW announcer Mark Madden, who went on Twitter to blast the WWE chief.
"McMahon mocking Ross' Bell's Palsy was unforgivable. What a scumbag, pure and simple. Just a twisted, emotionally crippled jerkoff," he wrote.
Madden continues, "McMahon wasn't mocking a stranger. Ross is one of WWE's most valued employees ever. Ross' big sin: He knows more about wrestling than Vince."
Madden was asked whether Ross was notified of the impersonation beforehand. He replied, "Was not "in on the bit." I can assure you of that."
Former WWE creative writer Seth Mates pointed out the hypocrisy in McMahon mocking Ross' medical condition while simultaneously promoting the 'be a STAR' anti-bullying campaign.
"WWE touts anti-bullying, yet babyface Vince mocks @JRsBBQ's medical condition?" he wrote on Twitter. "It's one thing for heels to be bullies and then get what they have coming. It's another for faces to make bullying look cool and fun."
A follower responded, "the BAS/WWE hypocrisy complaints are old and stale." Mates wrote, "How does hypocrisy get old & stale? Hypocrisy is hypocrisy."
Another on-air remark mocking Ross' medical condition took place months earlier on the December 9, 2011 episode of SmackDown. After commentator Josh Mathews made a remark about Michael Cole "speaking out of both sides" of his mouth, Cole quipped, "Actually, there is nothing wrong with my mouth, unlike J.R.'s." Ross was not pleased with the comment. He wrote on Twitter, "We can blame a 'writer.' That's cowardly. Poor attempt to be a villain."
