'Real Sports' host Bryant Gumbel: NRA is 'curse upon the American landscape'

HBO "Real Sports" host Bryant Gumbel slammed the NRA, calling them a "curse upon the American landscape," in a new interview with Rolling Stone.

Gumbel said he "hate[s]" the NRA and called them "pigs" who "don't care about human life" when asked by Rolling Stone about a recent segment he featured on the "Eat What You Kill" movement.

"There are a few things I hate more than the NRA," Gumbel said. "I mean truly. I think they're pigs. I think they don't care about human life. I think they are a curse upon the American landscape. So we got that on the record."

The sports show host said his disdain for the gun rights group had no effect on his reporting.

"That said, I'm willing to separate that this story had nothing to do with that. It's not a gun story," he said of the "Eat What You Kill" segment. "So I would like to think that I would have done it, but I don't know. Obviously, that was my first experience around killing and guns and hunting."

A rep for the NRA was not made immediately available to FOX411 for comment.
