WWE issues statement on Jordan Myles controversy

NXT Star Jordan Myles has been in news over the weekend after he called out the company for a seemingly offensive T-shirt design via a number of tweets.



Myles has since tried to convert the thing into a movement using the #ForTheCulture hashtag and a number of other WWE superstars have shown support to him.

The company recently responded to these events via an official statement, claiming that the NXT Star had actually approved the design and they have sold no shirts after he made the objection.

“Albert Hardie Jr. (aka Jordan Myles) approved this t-shirt for sale. As always, we work collaboratively with all of our performers to develop logos and merchandise designs and get their input and approval before proceeding. This was the same process with Albert, and we responded swiftly once he later requested that the logo/t-shirt be redesigned. No t-shirts were sold.”

It’s unknown whether the NXT Star actually knew about the design beforehand and if he had approved of the same but we’ll keep you posted on the matter.
