Jaxson Ryker goes private on social media after fans discover “soul man” photo from 2017

Jaxson Ryker has made his social media accounts private after another part of his past was dug up by fans who were not happy about Ryker’s praise of Donald Trump and his 2019 Facebook post where he referred to “Black Lives Matter” as “garbage.”

As of this writing, Ryker’s Twitter and Instagram accounts are now set to private and it appears that he has done the same with his private Facebook account under his real name Chad Lail. This comes on the day when fans discovered a 2017 post where he was seen with a dark tan as he referred to himself as “soul man.”

“Soul Man” was a 1986 film based on a white man who took tanning pills so he could pretend to be black so he could qualify for a black-only scholarship at Harvard Law School. The movie drew a lot of criticism and protests because of the white man in the movie wearing blackface.

You can see the 2017 photo below. The caption under the photo read: “The one time I took a selfie as soul man while a guy was pissing behind me. Love bodybuilding. One of the most rewarding things I’ve done as well as wrestling.”
