WWE star receives backlash for pro-Trump tweet Submitted by Aaron Rift on 06/01/2020 at 09:54 PM
On Monday night, U.S. President and WWE Hall of Famer Donald Trump addressed the country and discussed how he was going to handle the current violence and looting in American cities:
"As we speak, I am dispatching thousands and thousands of heavily armed soldiers, military personnel, and law enforcement officers to stop the rioting, looting, vandalism, assaults, and the wanton destruction of property. We will end it now."
Smackdown star Jaxson Ryker of The Forgotten Sons showed his support for Trump but was met with backlash from fans:
Thankful for the @POTUS we have! God bless America. Built of freedom. Forgotten No More
Go f*** yourself. If this is serious it’s disgusting and you’re a fascist. If this is to get heel heat it is beyond disgusting and tone deaf and you should feel every sort of shame. Maybe you should have been forgotten.
I can't believe this dude's wrestling name is "Jaxson Ryker". That's like the John Smith of shitty wrestler names. I made that name up as a joke about ppl who do shitty hurracanranas https://t.co/dwcfxQvjRt
