Recently Kurt Sutter, who created Sons Of Anarchy, stirred up a feud when he claimed that the actors on his show could beat up the “real” Motorcycle Club featured in Discovery’s The Devils Ride, The Laffing Devils.
It appears viewers of The Devils Ride might agree with Sutter. Many don’t know if The Laffing Devils are a real MC, or if they were created for television?
In a recent article by HULIQ many fans were questioning how real the Discovery reality show is. One fan wrote,
“What respectable MC airs their Mc business with the world on national television? Also, if you listen and watch what goes on in the first airing, they contradict themselves relative to membership/tension etc. Lastly, the wives of the members go out for dinner in public with cameras rolling for national TV and they (or Prospect Charles) worry about some paparazzi taking pics of them? If you don’t want your pic taken, why are you on TV? Also, I wonder if they realize that Red and White is the colors of another well known worldwide MC that has been around for over 50 years. I am curious to know if these TV bikers got permission to use those two colors and center logo from the worldwide MC that owns them?”
Some however are far less critical of the show. Another commenter said,
“Hey they’re cool ! All M/C;s don’t have to be 1%ers. They’re there with permission. These guys are just in it for the Brotherhood of riding with friends. A step up from your local Hog chapter.”
Another thing viewers take issue with is the fact the MC president is married to a police officer. Many are amendment that this could never and would never happen in a real motorcycle club.
Whatever the definition of a “real” MC is, The Devils Ride is stirring up controversy, particularly the question that has yet to be answered: Fake or not fake?
