Never before have so many been so mad about...a man letting a snake munch on his head?

Internet denizens heaped scorn on Paul Rosolie after the American naturalist appeared on the Discovery Channel Sunday night promising to be "Eaten Alive" by an anaconda — but then called for his team to pull him out after the snake had pinned him and taken his head inside its jaws.

But just a few moments into the ordeal, Rosolie, communicating with his team by radio, says his arms are "torquing" and might break — so he calls for his team to take the snake off of him.

"This thing is gonna break," Rosolie says. "I'm calling it! I need help!"

On Twitter, people expressed disgust and disappointment that Rosolie's show, "Eaten Alive," didn't deliver on its name.

A few users offered humorous takes, with one suggesting Rosolie would take on a Tyrannosaurus rex and another posting a picture with his finger in his dog's mouth, asking, "Hey Discovery, can I have my own show?"
