WWE statement on inappropriate photos shown on ThunderDome on Raw

On Tuesday, several media outlets shared photos of a fan in KKK attire spotted in the front row of the ThunderDome audience during the WWE Monday Night Raw broadcast.



Apparently the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) image wasn’t the only inappropriate content that was prominently featured on the WWE Monday Night Raw on USA Network television broadcast for this week’s post-SummerSlam episode of the show.

Additional “abhorrent behavior” and imagery was displayed during the broadcast via the WWE ThunderDome virtual fan experience screens featured in the background as the “live fan audience” for all WWE programming since the launch on the August 21, 2020 episode of WWE Friday Night SmackDown.

Joining the KKK member that was seen multiple times on the broadcast on WWE Monday Night Raw for the August 24, 2020 broadcast was an image of Chris Benoit, as well as patched in footage of an infamous viral execution video from the world-wide web.

For those who missed it, WWE issued the following statement commenting on the inappropriate imagery that was caught on the 8/24 Monday Night Raw broadcast:

“This abhorrent behavior does not reflect WWE‘s values and we have zero tolerance for these unacceptable acts. We are working to ban those involved from future events and per our policies, any inappropriate actions result in the removal from the live stream.”

Check out the new photos of the inappropriate content displayed by fans via WWE ThunderDome during this week’s edition of WWE Monday Night Raw below.
