MJF flipping off a seven-year-old kid in Chicago during this past weekend made it on TMZ and is getting some media attention.
MJF plays his heel part to perfection and it doesn’t matter who it is as he wears his gimmick to the full especially during meet and greets. After posing for the photo with the kid and his father, MJF flipped the bird to the kid who is clearly seen taken aback a little bit.
His father laughed…but then complained about it to Cody Rhodes, writing that he tried to laugh it off because he knows MJF’s character but it really upset his kid and he doesn’t understand since he’s seven years old.
Cody responded by saying they will have some free tickets next time they are in the area and he would come by and say hello during the show but noted that he as a father should have known what was coming. “Talent have freedom of expression so please don’t think anybody is going to act any different than they do on TV,” Cody wrote.
The father wants AEW to rope in their talent for meet and greets and not act like jerks to kids, a tweet which didn’t get over very well. In fact, the father has now also changed his Twitter feed to limited view due to the replies he was getting.
“DISCLAIMER: If you have a meet/greet or inquire media wise for MJF, you’ll get MJF,” Cody added, saying that this was a paid meet and greet where the individual was specifically chosen by the paying customer.
