Lars Sullivan fined and ordered to undergo sensitivity training for racist remarks

In a statement issued to Forbes, WWE confirmed that Lars Sullivan is being fined $100,000 and ordered to undergo sensitivity training for his past racial and homophobic rants on the Bodybuilder.com forum.

“WWE supports a culture of inclusion regardless of gender, race, religion or sexual orientation, and we are committed to embracing all individuals as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees, performers and fans worldwide,” the statement read.

It then continued, “Dylan Miley (aka Lars Sullivan) will be fined $100,000 and required to complete sensitivity training for offensive commentary uncovered from his past. WWE will also facilitate meetings for Dylan with community organizations to foster further discussion around the power of social media and the impact of your words.”

A Reddit user compiled a long list of comments that Sullivan posted several years ago that contained highly controversial words especially against gays and black people. The thread went viral with some non-wrestling websites also picking it up.
