UPDATE: Dylan Miley (Lars Sullivan) issued the following statement to us:
“There is no excuse for the inappropriate remarks that I made years ago. They do not reflect my personal beliefs nor who I am today, and I apologize to anyone I offended.”
ORIGINAL: A Reddit user has posted a comprehensive list of posts allegedly from Lars Sullivan that could cause him trouble with WWE management. Wrestlers in the company are already aware of his posting history and Big E is the first WWE Superstar to comment on Sullivan publicly. Scroll down to the bottom of this post for Big E’s thoughts on Sullivan.
Here are some screenshots from Sullivan’s posting history on bodybuilding.com:
His thoughts on rape:
“Not a troll thread, just a thought. And the thought is that there’s a grey area when it comes to sexual intercourse and rape. There’s 100% complete consensual sex when a woman will rip off her clothes and jump on you, then there’s levels that don’t quite reach 100% consent. Most women like men to take control, at what point is it too much control?
I’m not insinuating that the politician who spewed the nonsense about women controlling when they get pregnant by switching it off in their brain is right, he’s a complete moron. But the fact is there is a grey area when it comes to the definition of rape.”
On making fun of homophobia, racism, sexism:
It’s a part of our culture. I don’t actually have any true hateful feelings for gay people, but it’s just a part of my sense of humor I like to explore. Homophobia, racism, sexism, these are all hilarious things to make light of in the right environment (among other straight men).
He believes people with mental illness are “pretty weak minded:”
Well then you’re pretty weak minded, aren’t you? How did our grandparents survive? This is why people talk about the pussification of men in America. Mentality like what you have.
He believes Vince McMahon doesn’t care about Mexican people:
Yeah it’s to appeal to mexicans. The McMahons don’t care about about mexicans politically, but when it comes to business they’ll exploit any race to make money.
His thoughts on Kofi Kingston and R-Truth (from 2012):
On the flip side I will ask what are Kofi and R Truth supposed to be? A PG black panther stable? I always wondered why they had to team up two black guys. Both those guys look like they could be in a prison black gang.
His thoughts on some black people:
Numerous reasons OP.
Some blacks want to take advantage of their great grandparents misfortunes, and they want a piece of the pity pie. Instead of taking some personal responsibility, they choose to attack the white man and say we must take care of them financially.
Black Panther Party. These guys are the epitome of racist clowns.
When immigrants (particularly of the illegal persuasion coming from our neighbors down south) hear that we are “land of the free”, to them that means they get free stuff.
There is a clear political divide among the races. The democrats essentially bribing minorities for votes is the root cause of this problem.
So many other reasons.
Those are a small sample and there are much more links contained in the Reddit thread.
For those of you wondering about the authenticity of the account associated with those posts, click here to see a photo he posted of himself in 2013.
He has also made comments about anti-psych meds, Daniel Bryan, AJ Styles, why he thinks Alberto Del Rio got a push, the NAACP, Scott Hall, Zack Ryder, Dave Meltzer and Chinese wrestling,” AJ Lee, Stone Cold and Debra, Kanyon’s suicide, Vince McMahon, Susan G. Komen and more.

It looks like the WWE locker room is aware of Sullivan’s post history. Big E made note of the Reddit thread when it was brought up to him on Twitter:
Many are aware. If true, he has to bear the albatross of being a bigot & working in a company that is now filled with minorities.
