WWE released a statement in response to Myles' initial Tweet yesterday evening: “Albert Hardie Jr. (aka Jordan Myles) approved this t-shirt for sale. As always, we work collaboratively with all of our performers to develop logos and merchandise designs and get their input and approval before proceeding. This was the same process with Albert, and we responded swiftly once he later requested that the logo/t-shirt be redesigned. No t-shirts were sold.”

Myles has responded to that statement, tweeting: "When I originally saw the design I was uncomfortable. Rather than addressing the issue I decided to counter offer with another. Baker Landon lied to my face! He said HHH wanted this design so my hands were tied. I spoke with Triple H in person and his impression was I approved."

Myles also published a short Twitter video where he was seen saying "WWE doesn't care about black people." Although, the video has since been deleted.

Jordan also Tweeted: "THE WHOLE WWE SYSTEM IS FRAUD! THEY CREATED THIS SYSTEM WHERE YOU CAN'T TRUST ANYONE, YOU GROW COLD, AND YOU GROW APART FROM WHAT YOU LOVE THE MOST! The fact that Hulk Hogan is still employed after giving the locker room an apology for being caught says enough. #ForTheCulture"
