Fox exec has no regrets at all about having Rudy Giuliani on ‘Masked Singer’

Fox Entertainment exec Rob Wade said he has “no regrets at all” about the former mayor and Donald Trump’s lawyer by Rudy Giuliani appearance in “The Masked Singer”.

Wade, Fox Entertainment’s president of alternative entertainment and specials, defended the decision to Variety on Monday, saying Giuliani’s surprise performance on the popular show was excellent for television.

“Yes, I have absolutely no regrets,” Wade told the publication. “Marketing is all about delivering amazing moments, which is exactly what the casting did. And whether on set or with viewers at home, I guess my only regret or surprise was obviously that the reveal was blown. [by the press]but congratulations to you. Just please don’t do it again. Thank you very much.”

Trump’s former attorney appeared in episode 7 of the show this season. Giuliani, who performed under the pseudonym “Jack In The Box,” was unmasked while singing George Thorogood and the Destroyers’ “Bad to the Bone.”

Two famous judges, singer Robin Thicke and actor Ken Jeong, were visibly upset about Giuliani’s participation in the Fox show.

After Giuliani’s revelation, Jeong said, “I’m done” and walked off stage.

“Oh my gosh,” Thicke said after the unmasking. “This is definitely something that he would never have imagined.”

Actress Jenny McCarthy and singer Nicole Scherzinger, who are also judging the show, remained on stage and danced as Giuliani continued to perform.

Viewers of “The Masked Singer” criticized both Giuliani and the network for allowing the controversial political figure to appear on the show, pointing to the role he played in fomenting the insurrection at the US Capitol on January 6. January 2021.

Before Trump supporters violently stormed the Capitol to protest the 2020 election results, Giuliani had spent months spreading false claims that widespread voter fraud resulted in Trump’s electoral loss.

He made that claim again at the rally that preceded the riot, claiming there were rigged voting machines and declaring, “Let’s have a trial by combat.”

Giuliani later told the reporter brett samuels from The Hill that his comments were in reference to “that famous documentary,” “Game of Thrones.”

The lifelong politician is currently facing numerous defamation lawsuits of the corporations of the voting system.
