Worldwide Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) has entered into problems again. Jordan Myles, who had called out Vince McMahon and Triple H for the designing of his t-shirt for being “racially insensitive” tweeted on Sunday, 3rd November that he was still waiting for them to “reach out” to him.
“If WWE doesn’t reach out to me by tomorrow I’ll make sure my voice and my movement will be heard…” Myles also added a hashtag, “#ForTheCulture” to his tweet to give it more emphasis.
Myles’ complaints about the t-shirt design rang out in late October. Back then, after t-shirt design was made known to him, he had angrily taken to Twitter. His tweet read, “They'll regret making this...#ForTheCulture I will keep posting this till my voice is heard.
I'm not sorry for anything I say or do. Representation is important. If this is @VinceMcMahon & @TripleH 'vision' of me then this is a slap in the face to EVERY African American performer, fan, and supporter”.
In response, WWE issued a statement of its own in which it noted that Myles had approved of the t-shirt design. “Albert Hardie Jr. (aka Jordan Myles) approved this t-shirt for sale. As always, we work collaboratively with all of our performers to develop logos and merchandise designs and get their input and approval before proceeding.
This was the same process with Albert, and we responded swiftly once he later requested that the logo/t-shirt be redesigned. No t-shirts were sold,” the statement mentioned. Myles is currently out on a non-injury medical leave from the WWE.
His last bout came on 21st September in Melbourne. His leave did not coincide with the racism problem regarding his t-shirt’s design.
