t-knows-its-offensive/” target=”new”>OutSports.com, WWE are distancing themselves from South California-based independent wrestler Scorpio Sky after the ten-year grappling veteran posted anti-gay messages on his Twitter account.

Sky, who appeared as “Harold” in one of Daniel Bryan and Kane’s anger management classes in August, wrote the word “faggot” on Twitter and attacked people who didn’t like it.

A wrestling fan who argued with Sky via Twitter over his use of the anti-gay slur contacted WWE about the wrestler’s language. WWE Fan Services responded: “WWE strongly believes that everyone should be treated with respect and this principle is the foundation of our anti-bullying initiative, “Be a STAR”. Mr. Andrews no longer works for WWE and we have no plans to work with him in the future.”

Sky also works with Lucha VaVOOM, and the company is not happy with his anti-gay tweets. The company stated to OutSports.com, “Please rest assured that Lucha VaVOOM does not condone this language, and further, it’s important to us specify that we do not employ the character “Scorpio Sky.” The wrestler that plays “Scorpio Sky” appears sometimes, but not under that moniker, and he does not have access to speak for Lucha VaVOOM or any of his Lucha VaVOOM characters. However, we have emailed him our grievances and await his response.”

One month prior to appearing for WWE, Sky competed in TNA Wrestling’s X Division Championship Tournament as Mason Andrews.

    This story is exactly the reason Linda McMahon lost her Sen. seat, try!!!! There is no need to not permit a persons free speech from being given to them, no matter what the venue. The disturbing part about this whole situation is that the WWE is so biased now. They seem to be holding court with HOMOSEXUAL GROUPS, and against the normal people in this country.
