NXT star Amari Miller who joined the company last year, has found herself amid controversy after her comment on Sasha Banks.
Amari Miller makes a racial comment on Sasha Banks
Banks had won the NXT Women’s Championship by pinning Charlotte Flair in a fatal four-way match that also involved Becky Lynch and Bayley at NXT TakeOver: Rival on February 11th, 2014. Meanwhile, Ember Moon(now Athena in AEW) had won the vacant NXT Women’s Championship in a fatal-four-way match that also involved Peyton Royce, Nikki Cross, and Kairi Sane on November 18th, 2017.
The NXT 2.0 star recently stirred a debate on Twitter about Banks’ race. Amari Miller doubled down on her tweet by saying that Ember Moon, not Sasha Banks, is the “first and only African American” NXT Women’s Champion.
Amari Miller received a lot of flak from the fans on social media due to her remarks on ‘The Boss.’ She had eventually deactivated her Twitter account in the wake of her latest comments on social media. She wrote:
For everyone on Twitter fully Black NXT Champion(Ember moon)

Shoutout to Ember Moon being the first and only African American @WWENXT Womens champion..
