NXT wrestler Jordan Myles (Albert Hardie Jr.) called out WWE in a tweet over an offensive t-shirt the company designed for him (see below). “I will keep posting this till my voice is heard,” Myles wrote on Twitter. “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.” WWE responded by issuing a statement stating that Myles approved the t-shirt for sale.
Powell’s POV: The t-shirt design is certainly questionable. It’s insane that it made it through whatever process they have before being manufactured, though WWE indicated in their statement that none of the t-shirts were actually sold.
I will keep posting this till my voice is heard. I’m not sorry for anything I say or do.
Representation is important.
