A “Fear Factor” stunt that involved drinking donkey semen chased with urine became a little too much to swallow for NBC execs.
The episode, called “Hee Haw! Hee Haw!,” was set to broadcast on Monday night, but was pulled from the schedule. A rerun is now in its place, New York Daily News reports.
Last week, TMZ leaked the details of the stunt, and NBC’s parent company, Comcast, pulled the plug on the asinine act.
Even “Fear Factor’ host Joe Rogan was skeptical of the stunt, telling Entertainment Weekly last month that, “They’re not even sure if they’re going to air it. It’s so over the top and ridiculous. When they told me, I really though they were joking at first. I don’t know where the debate is, but NBC is not sure if they’re going to air it.”
The only thing worse than having to drink donkey semen to win a competition is having to drink donkey semen to win a competition and never even getting on TV.
