Following on from NXT’s Jordan Myles calling out Vince McMahon and Triple H for a racist t-shirt, WWE has issued the following statement:
“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.”
Noticeably there was no apology, and WWE essentially said it was Myles’s fault as he approved it.
It should be noted that in the past, WWE has not always worked with their wrestlers on designs, as you can see from the below tweet from Pac. Of course, things may have changed since 2017.
This ATROCITY is not on the NEVILLE LEVEL.
