WWE On FOX Made A Bad "People Of Color" Tweet

On Monday, The WWE On FOX Twitter account tweeted a photo to promote last night’s RAW, featuring Kairi Sane, Erick Rowan, Seth RollinsBecky Lynch, Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan.

All of these Superstars had been announced for matches or segments on this week’s RAW.

One fan responded to the graphic and asked, “Where are the people of color”

The WWE On FOX account responded, “What do you think Kairi Sane is?”

This led to controversy on social media, and the response was quickly deleted. For what it’s worth, Google defines “person of color” as “a person who is not white or of European parentage.”

A verified WWE On FOX Reddit account responded to the thread on Reddit and admitted they made a bad tweet.

“It was a bad tweet our on end. We shouldn’t have even replied, or we could’ve used other examples like The Street Profits, R-Truth etc. But we just should’ve stayed quiet. Mistakes happen, and this was on us,” WWE On FOX wrote on Reddit.
