• Bianca Belair Thinks WWE Made Her Look “Ghetto” (New Vince McMahon Lawsuit Update)

Vince McMahon is facing another lawsuit, but this one has nothing to do with hush money.

According to Bloomberg, former WWE writer Britney Abrahams (who began writing for RAW & SmackDown in 2020) is suing the company & Vince:

“World Wrestling Entertainment Inc., Vince McMahon, and other executives allegedly discriminated and retaliated against a Black female writer for objecting to ‘offensively racist and stereotypical jargon’ used in the scripts of Black wrestlers including Bianca Belair and Apollo Crews, according to a new lawsuit.

Britney Abrahams’ multiple complaints were ignored, and she was pretextually terminated for taking home a WrestleMania-branded chair, according to the complaint filed in the US District Court for the Eastern District of New York on Monday.

She complained of racial and gender stereotypes in scripts, including ones instructing Belair to say ‘Uh-Uh! Don’t make me take off my earrings and beat your a$$!’ and Crews to speak with a ‘stereotypical and exaggerated Nigerian accent,’ but was rebuffed, she said.

Other writers suggested a Black male wrestler should dress in drag. Only when a White writer noted that doing so could ‘perpetuate harmful stereotypes that would offend viewers’ was the pitch scrapped, she said.

On another occasion, a writer allegedly proposed that a Muslim’s wrestler’s secret in a script be that he was ‘behind the 9/11 attacks.’

Abrahams continued to opposed racist, sexist pitches, she said, and was fired in retaliation in April 2022. WWE fired her for taking with her a WrestleMania 38 branded chair, but the practice was allegedly a common practice that White male writers weren’t punished for.

She is seeking reinstatement, damages, declaratory judgment, and an injunction restraining defendants from engaging in such unlawful conduct.”

She also mentioned in the lawsuit that Bianca Belair herself complained about the content of her promo once:

“In conversation with Ms. Belair the following day, Ms. Belair informed Plaintiff that she told Chris Dunn ‘3 DIFFERENT TIMES THAT I DON’T WANT TO SAY THAT LINE! BUT HE NEVER LISTENS TO ME! HE PUTS THAT LINE IN EVERY WEEK.’

Ms. Belair said the script’s discriminatory line(s) made her look ‘ghetto’.”
