Re: WWE fines Lars Sullivan over comments

What he said is messed up, but they're opening a bigger can of worms by punishing someone for something they did before they even worked for them. As a black man, of course I'm gonna be bothered by racism, but this just doesn't feel like the right thing to do.

They clearly already knew about this. They probably only took action because someone ratted them out to snickers. This doesn't come off like they punished him because they were disgusted by his actions. This comes off as a pathetic attempt to appease their sponsors... they honestly come out of all this looking worse imo

Re: WWE fines Lars Sullivan over comments

If the fine is legit, and itīs because of comments he made before being hired, Iīd take it to court if I were him. Itīll cost him his career, but to kill it now, or have it die by itself in a year.. whatīs the difference?

Re: WWE fines Lars Sullivan over comments

should Bret Hart be totally disavowed for calling D-Generation X "faggots" back in 1997? cause some of these comments are from legit 2006-7-8.. we really gonna pretend like the internet is the way it is nowadays? shit back in them days people didnt give out all their info like they do now. like fuck me i dont even like Lars Sullivan but goddamn if this bullshit from the "woke" brigade isnt making me double guess my initial opinion of him.

Sure, but imagine you just signed a contract with a $250K a year downside guarantee, you might be inclined to buy a house, car, etc. plus you need enough cash on hand for travel, hotel, food expenses. Getting hit with such a massive fine could really screw things up for him. Batista got fined $100K for blading but he was a main eventer making millions; this is pretty brutal for a guy who just started making money.

Re: WWE fines Lars Sullivan over comments

In other news, Lars Sullivan signs a new five-year contract with WWE for $750,000 a year.*

I wonder how much money Sullivan will make for presumably being a featured participant in the Battle Royal in Saudi Arabia?

Fuck this company. Bullshit fines is actually something the Saudi family did to give the appearance of "disciplining" one of the princes. It was a drop in the bucket to his overall finances, but hey, make good with the peons, right?

Now all of a sudden it's reemerging again with the same exact comments that were reported months ago, like we all forgot that it was reported already? Like, why?
Some people just really hate Lars Sullivan, like he slept with their girlfriend or something.
Because they bother people. It's not up to you to decide what is racist, misogynist, homophobic, or otherwise discriminatory or tasteless. It's also not up to you when or how people find out about this information. It's come out and it's a news story now. Them's the breaks. If it makes people of any of the wronged parties, or just decent human beings, feel awful then it is something that the company is responsible for endorsing through financial support.

Are you black? Are you gay? Are you a woman? If the answer to any of these questions is "no," maybe your opinion about whether or not this should bother people is a little bit uneducated?
