• Former NXT Wrestler Accuses WWE Of Forcing Talent To Tweet “Black Lives Matter”
The death of George Floyd, a black man who was killed in the custody of Minneapolis police on Monday, raised a lot of concerns on mainstream and social media. He died when an officer knelt on his neck as he laid on the ground.
Since then, the hashtag ‘#BlackLivesMatter’ has been trending on Twitter. Many WWE wrestlers also took to Twitter to share the hashtag on their account.
Former WWE NXT wrestler MJ Jenkins said on her Twitter account that WWE is instructing talent to tweet about it, without leaving them a choice. She thinks that wrestlers should do so if they feel like it, and not because the company wants them to do so.
Whew, that mass text of telling talent to tweet #BlackLivesMatter is in full effect ? If you're going to take a stand for the oppressed at least be authentic!
