MJF issues followup statement in response to fan backlash over his segment with Juice Robinson on AEW Dynamite

As previously noted, MJF addressed a controversial segment from the October 10th 2023 edition of AEW Dynamite that included Juice Robinson revealing a roll of quarters with “FRIEDMAN” written on it. The segment was criticized for being both antisemitic and in bad taste due to the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas. On Wednesday afternoon, MJF issued a followup statement in response to fan backlash over the segment…

“Muhammad Hassan was portraying an evil Muslim terrorist. I’m actually Jewish. I’ve actually gone through this. This is my real life!!!!! MY STORY! And I Look forward to giving Catharsis to every single person who’s ever been oppressed or bullied. If you think I’d play with that or take it lying down or WORST OF ALL Hide from the hard conversations like a coward… You’re on crazy pills.

I look forward to the hard conversations this starts and creates. I look forward to people being further educated. My life’s work is to stand up to any and all injustices done to people due to something as Stupid as being different. To anyone that thinks that can’t be done through the avenue of professional wrestling. Then that’s an indictment on things that have happened in this sports past. I look forward to bringing this sport into the present. I look forward to knocking Juice Robinson’s teeth down his throat. And most of all I look forward to getting back the Triple B!”
