Wrestler Mick Foley to Protect 10-Year-Old Gay Rights Activist

Stewart

Last night, Jon Stewart discussed Peter Vadala, the dude who said he got fired from Brookstone because he didn't agree with his colleague's views on same-sex marriage, and Will Phillips, the 10-year-old who refuses to say the Pledge of Allegiance until gay people have equality.

FoleyStewart thinks Phillips needs protection, so he's brought in wrestler Mick Foley.

Says Foley: "I was touched by young Will's plight so I'll tell you what I'm going to do: If I find out that anybody has hassled this young man or teased him or called him a wad of any sort, I and perhaps a few of my friends will come to his school and bring a world of pain. Teachers, faculty, students be ware because the eyes of Mick Foley are upon you."
