An email from Vince McMahon was sent out to everyone in WWE today, including employees and wrestlers.
The email stressed the importance of diversity and it was announced that 24/7 mental health counseling would be made available to anyone who needs it. It was also stated that an email address would be created for anyone who works in the company to address any diversity concerns so that they could be brought to the attention of WWE management. The email also included a link to diversity training courses for company employees.
The email comes one day after WWE issued a statement on their website and social media platforms in support of justice for George Floyd. WWE received a ton of criticism after yesterday’s statement because of their history of racially insensitive storylines and the McMahon family ties to Donald Trump.
The email also comes after Jaxson Ryker received a ton of backlash for his tweet supporting President Trump and a 2019 post where he referred to Black Lives Matter as “garbage.”
The news about this email was first reported by PWInsider.
