Since moving to the main roster, Lars Sullivan has been the subject of controversy in WWE. It emerged in May 2019 that he made multiple homophobic, misogynistic and racist posts on a bodybuilding forum before he signed with the company. The Freak was subsequently fined $100,000 and apologised for his comments.
Sullivan returned to Friday Night SmackDown last week after over a year on the sidelines, but he finds himself at the centre of controversy once again.
A Reddit thread appeared last night which showed Instagram messages between Lars and @yogafortheathlete, a yoga wellness expert. Within the messages, the SmackDown Superstar complimented the woman's legs and requested "booty pics."
Bodyslam's Andy Wade reached out to @yogafortheathlete after the Reddit post and she said Sullivan started sending her inappropriate messages in the last couple of months. Within the messages, he again referred to her legs and "booty" and said he was "totally enamored" with her profile. You can see the screenshots here.
Lars Sullivan and WWE have yet to comment on the matter.
