"Sons of Anarchy" creator Kurt Sutter has been on a Twitter tirade against the Discovery biker show "The Devil's Ride," calling the show a rip-off of "Sons of Anarchy." According to PWS on Feb. 15, Jason Hervey defended his reality show by claiming Sutter's allegations "couldn't be further from the truth."
"Sons of Anarchy" is a one-hour drama television series that focuses on a motorcycle gang who is also associated with organized crime. It is based loosely on Shakespearean drama, specifically the story of "Hamlet."
"The Devil's Ride" is a Discovery Channel reality series about actual real rival biker gangs in San Diego and how they live through their own moral codes.
It started when Sutter took to Twitter asking if "The Devil's Ride" had been cancelled and then he made comments that made it sound like the bikers on the show might not be legitimate. Sutter said that the actors on his show work harder than the real biker gangs in San Diego. That is when one of the bikers, Mad Max, fired back with an expletive laced response.
Sutter then explained that, if the biker gangs from "The Devil's Ride" are legitimate, they sold out their legacy for the cash of being reality TV stars and then made a fat joke about Jason Hervey.
While Hervey struck back on Twitter in just a juvenile a manner, he then was more civil when he spoke to TMZ Live. Hervey said that Kurt Sutter thinks he is the "Moses" of the motorcycle world thanks to "Sons of Anarchy" and that the "Sons of Anarchy" creator believes that all motorcycle shows are a rip-off of his show.
"The Devil's Ride" airs on Monday nights on The Discovery Channel at 10 p.m. EST.
