WWE Issues Statement On KKK Imagery Appearing Inside The ThunderDome
They are working to ban the virtual fan...
In the main event of Monday Night Raw, Dominik Mysterio and Rey Mysterio teamed together against Seth Rollins and Murphy. The match was somewhat overshadowed by a virtual fan, however, as a KKK rally could be seen on one of the LED screens. This came only hours after another user screen shared an image of Chris Benoit during Drew McIntyre's opening promo.
WWE commented on the matter earlier today and mentioned they are looking to ban the user who shared the KKK rally.
The company issued the following statement to Pro Wrestling Sheet: "This abhorrent behavior does not reflect WWE's values and we have zero tolerance for these unacceptable acts. We are working to ban those involved from future events and per our policies, any inappropriate actions result in the removal from the live stream."
Beyond offensive imagery, items from pop culture have been visible inside WWE ThunderDome. Pikachu could be seen during much of SummerSlam, while fans spotted Mario and Sonic The Hedgehog during last night's edition of Raw.
