Heads rolled yesterday at Titan Towers as WWE fired a few employees who are part of the talent relations department after Mickie James tweeted that she received her stuff at home from the company in a black trash bag.
In a tweet addressed to Vince McMahon, James wrote, “Im not sure if you’re aware, I did receive my @WWE care package today. Thank you,” along with the hash tags #AlwaysBlessedandGrateful #WomensWrestlingMatters. The picture accompanying the tweet had a black trash bag in a cardboard box.
Stephanie McMahon and Triple both publicly addressed the controversy and apologized to James on behalf of the company, noting that the person involved is no longer employed.
“I am embarrassed you or anyone else would be treated this way,” wrote Stephanie McMahon. “I apologize personally and on behalf of @WWE. The person responsible is no longer with our company.”
Triple H added, “Upon learning of the disrespectful treatment some of our recently released talent received on behalf of the company, we took immediate action. The person responsible for this inconsiderate action has been fired and is no longer with @WWE.”
James was released last week along with several other Superstars.
