World Wrestling Entertainment reporter Michael Cole attempted to interview Glenn Beck on Monday, but the conservative commentator allegedly refused to talk.

“You’d think that if Mr. Beck had such inflammatory comments to say about our product that he would be willing to come out here and at least do a one-on-one interview with me,” Cole said while standing in the lobby of Beck’s studio in Dallas.

The WWE reporter was asked to leave and told Beck was currently not in the building. However, Cole was also told that Beck was in his studio performing his show.

The WWE sent out a press release announcing, “Glenn Beck Hides From WWE.”

Beck referred to the WWE as “stupid wrestling people” last week. He complained the character Zebediah Colter was insulting tea party members by making them look racist and ignorant. Beck said the WWE was “mocking” people such as himself “for standing up for the Constitution of the United States of America.”

In response, the WWE invited Beck onto their program. But Beck refused, saying “Unfortunately I am currently booked doing anything else.”
