As you will have seen in all the main news of our country, in the United States there is currently a real revolt against the Trump presidency and against the police in general, after the killing of a black man by an agent of the state of Minnesota, with the WWE who wanted to declare all his closeness to all the African American people who for many years have been in the police sights, guilty of being considered racist.
After the great clashes that took place in all the main cities of the USA, with several scuffles even reaching the front of the White House where President Donald Trump resides, with the same that he had to take refuge for a few hours in his bunker together with his family, for fear something might happen, the situation does not seem to calm down on US soil.
WWE releases official statement
All of this, as already anticipated, was triggered after the real murder of George Floyd, a boy from Minneapolis, who was kept on the ground by a policeman, who was then suspended and finally fired, who did not give way to the 'stopped to breathe, keeping him stuck on the ground with one knee behind his neck.
The last words of the black man, in fact, were "I can't breathe", words that in a very short time have become a hashtag that the whole world has distributed on all social networks in protest against the violence of the American police, especially towards the black population.
Even the WWE after weeks of clashes wanted to have its say, showing all its closeness to the African American people, with the following official statement emerged during the night. "WWE supports an inclusive society and condemns racial injustice.
We stand beside our Black performers, employees and fans around the world, and encourage everyone to use their voice to speak out against racism. We offer our sincere condolences to the family of George Floyd and the families of countless others who have lost their lives due to senseless violence."
WWE’s statement on the matter came after so many Superstars have already commented. Titus O’Neil has posted several times about it, Kayla Braxton is willing to cut people out of her life over the movement, and Ronda Rousey called for total police reform with civilian oversight.
