Jordan Myles: "WWE doesn't care about black people."
NXT's Jordan Myles made waves on social media last night after he accused his employers of designing a racist t-shirt against his wishes.
WWE released subsequently released a statement claiming that the design in question had been swiftly altered, though it is becoming increasingly clear that Myles' problems with the company's treatment of black wrestlers is more profound.
The performer released a short video this morning, since deleted, in which he simply stated:
"WWE doesn't care about black people."
He concluded the snippet by aiming his middle finger at the camera.
In a separate Tweet, Myles lambasted the WWE system as "a fraud", pointing out Hulk Hogan's involvement in spite of his meek locker room apology for his racist candid leak.
THE WHOLE WWE SYSTEM IS FRAUD!— Jordan Myles (@GoGoMyles) October 28, 2019
THEY CREATED THIS SYSTEM WHERE YOU CANT TRUST ANYONE, YOU GROW COLD, AND YOU GROW APART FROM WHAT YOU LOVE THE MOST!
The fact that @HulkHogan is still employed after giving the locker room an apology for being caught says enough.#ForTheCulture
The former ACL took wider aim at the industry, suggesting it was no coincidence that Jay Lethal is the only African American to reach the top of Ring Of Honor:
The offensive shirt instigating Myles' polemic depicted a set of oversized lips containing his name, against a black background. Though the wrestler didn't spell out the issue, he heavily hinted at the clear resemblance to blackface.
WWE have yet to respond to Myles' latest comments.
