Titus O’Neil and WWE Hall of Famer Booker T did not agree with how Jordan Myles has handled the t-shirt situation, airing the dirty laundry on social media and involving others without their approval.
Myles cooked up a storm a few days ago on Twitter accusing his employer of being racist for a t-shirt that was designed that depict blackface. WWE fired back saying that Myles approved the design but Myles said that he only saw it on a white background and the racist connotations are there if it’s on a black t-shirt.
O’Neil, who doesn’t hold back when it comes to his race, said that while he agreed that the t-shirt was distasteful, bringing others into the story so he could vent his frustrations on issues that have nothing to do with WWE is also very distasteful. “If it’s #ForTheCulture don’t attack those in it!” O’Neil replied.
Booker T was even more blunt and told Myles to “leave my name out of this crap.” In his latest podcast, Booker slammed Myles for going to social media to publicize this and said that he should have dealt this differently. “It’s not for the world to come in. I don’t know when is the last time somebody on social media signed my check,” Booker said.
The two-time WWE Hall of Famer added that he’s “standing way back on this one” and advised Myles that social media and his business don’t go together. “This is not a Colin Kaepernick moment. Let’s just get that straight…first and foremost. If anybody got something to say, I’m a very easy man to find. I’m at the Intercontinental Hotel in Los Angeles, California, kicking back and relaxing.”
