So, the hosts of Fox & Friends are a little angry with some comic book related properties out there. In the recently released video and images from Sony Pictures’ new CGI-animated Popeye, Popeye is seen not smoking a pipe. According to these hosts might be Sony’s attempt at “wussifying popeye”. According to them smoking a pipe is a symbol of “freedom and masculinity” and every child should be aware of this. Is Big Tobacco sponsoring Fox & Friends?

Give me a break.
Check out the full video and watch as these hosts eash put their respective foot in their mouths.
