Hulk Smash…Immigrants?

So apparently the original Hulk — that’s actor Lou Ferrigno — wants to smash immigrants (figuratively speaking). According to a recent news report:

“Television ‘Hulk’ actor Lou Ferrigno has joined an Arizona sheriff’s posse targeting illegal immigrants in the Phoenix valley area, the sheriff’s office said on Wednesday.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said Ferrigno, 59, a body builder who donned green makeup to star in the popular 1970s television series ‘The Incredible Hulk,’ was among 56 people sworn in as volunteers for an armed immigration posse.

Arpaio said the posse would work with sheriff’s deputies in operations targeting smugglers and businesses suspected of employing illegal immigrants in the county, among other duties.”

As a lover of celebrity gossip (it’s a good way to wipe the mind between tasks, okay?) I would have to say this is extremely disappointing — but predictable. There’s a slew of celebrities who lose it once they fade from the lime light and it’s always bound to happen, cases in point: Brigitte Bardot, Val Kilmer, Steven Seagal, Mel Gibson, etc.
