Democrats upload new video against Linda, WWE takes it down

Last week, a team of from the WWE legal department started flagging down videos on YouTube which had to be removed, mostly the Attitude Era edgier videos which were being used against Linda McMahon’s Senate campaign by the Democrats.

“In response to news that the WWE is scrubbing the internet of sexually explicit material from Linda McMahon’s tenure as CEO, the Connecticut Democratic Party is launching a new campaign to highlight the truth about McMahon’s past,” read a press release from the Democratic Party of Connecticut.

Instead of uploading to YouTube, the Democrats uploaded the video on another video sharing website, Vimeo, saying that they are re-releasing a video which highlights the type of programming Linda McMahon market to children.

“The video includes footage of wrestlers engaging in lewd sex acts, including one scene in which a wrestler has sex with a corpse,” the press release adds.

Included in the press release was the link to the Vimeo video, which funny enough, the WWE legal team also got their hands on, managing to take it off the Internet once again.

The video was titled “PG TV?” and the link now goes to a notice saying that the video was removed due to a third-party notification by World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc., claiming that that the footage used is infringing their copyright.
