Gail Kim Comments On A Story About Vince McMahon’s Beliefs About Asian Women (Updated)

Update: Kim tweeted out the following on Friday claiming that she has no hard feelings for Jim Ross:

Original: During Wednesday’s episode of the Ross Report, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross told a story about when the WWE was looking to sign Gail Kim. Ross said that he had to convince Vince McMahon about signing Kim.

Ross said that McMahon came to him and asked, “You want to hire this Asian girl, right?… I don’t know, I just don’t know.” Ross told him how good she was in the ring and that a lot of guys like Asian women. McMahon responded by saying “No?! Get out!”

Courtesy of Osiris Diaz, here is is an excerpt of a transcript from what Ross had to say:

Kim has since gotten word about the matter and tweeted out the following:

    Not being funny, but nothing in this interview with Ross suggests that Vince actually said anything negative other than mentioning that Ross wanted to hire an Asian girl specifically (would people be making the same assumptions if he had said “you want to hire this blonde girl” when talking about Kelly Kelly etc?).
    I think too much is being made of this as Ross may have been taken out of context (ie having a joke).

    And after the recent stories, HHH doesn’t seem like his views would be any different.

    No shock i agree, Vinnie would rather pay for darker fake tan and manufacture his own ethnic performers, than be down with taking any legit ones
