Nia Jax Facing Backlash Yet Again For Racially Offensive Joke On RAW

Nia Jax Facing Backlash Yet Again For Racially Offensive Joke On RAW

Before her match against Kairi Sane, Nia Jax cut a heel promo on tonight’s WWE RAW episode.

The promo included a line where she mimicked what Asuka and Kairi Sane sound like to her. A lot of fans found it racially insensitive:

“Don’t believe the hype. They aren’t what they say they are. The oh besties and the bright colors and memememe Japanese, it’s all smoke and mirrors.”

The backlash on Twitter was instant. Fans couldn’t believe that WWE edited their way around Kairi Sane’s bloody injury, but not around Nia Jax’s offensive line.

One fan questioned WWE’s decision saying: “So Nia Jax mocked Japanese which is kinda racist, mocked Becky Lynch being pregnant, said the title got handed to Asuka, played victim, & this is the match where Kairi gets busted wide open, i miss anything?”

Plenty of other fans shared a question asking how this line made it through the editing process. Some were more upset than others.
