Breaking news: WWE taking action against Lars Sullivan Submitted by Aaron Rift on 05/14/2019 at 01:36 PM
Alfred Konuwa of Forbes.com published the following e-mail he received from WWE:
"WWE supports a culture of inclusion regardless of gender, race, religion or sexual orientation, and we are committed to embracing all individuals as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees, performers and fans worldwide.
Dylan Miley (aka Lars Sullivan) will be fined $100,000 and required to complete sensitivity training for offensive commentary uncovered from his past. WWE will also facilitate meetings for Dylan with community organizations to foster further discussion around the power of social media and the impact of your words."
As previously noted, Sullivan had made some controversial message board posts on Bodybuilding.com around 2007-2013. While WWE has been aware about Sullivan's posts for several months, the posts recently became viral again and with sponsors such as Mars Wrigley making a public statement, WWE had to take some kind of action.
