Disabled fan forced to leave WWE show due to t-shirt? Submitted by Aaron Rift on 04/23/2019 at 01:21 PM
Disabled wrestling fan Patrick Davis wrote on Twitter that he was asked to leave the WWE live event in Moline, IL on Sunday for wearing a Jim Cornette shirt. According to Davis, security asked him to change his shirt since the Shield's match was being televised but since he didn't have another shirt, he left the event. Davis added that he wasn't given the option to turn the shirt inside out.
In an update, Davis said the tweets were sent out by a friend and the incident did not actually take place.
Here are the comments from Davis as well as a response from Jim Cornette himself:
This was taken 30 minutes before I was asked to leave by security due to my offensive shirt. I was simply Representing @TheJimCornette . Security said I could change my shirt but I could not keep it on due to it possibly being on TV. I did not have a change of clothes so I Left.
WTF? Seriously? I've met Patrick, @WWE, & he has more guts than anyone & the right to wear what he wants. This was bullshit. Patrick, email me at email@example.com & I will REIMBURSE you for your WWE tix. Especially now that you know not to buy any more! #Assholeshttps://t.co/C2oHLMbLSR
I appreciate the offer but it didn't happen. I had a house guest staying with me for a couple of days who thought it was funny to go on my social media accounts and post a bunch of fake crap. That picture was taken After the event was over.
