Abraham Washington is learning that rape jokes are never funny. The WWE star made a joke about Kobe Bryant, referencing his Colorado rape trial, and the WWE has now terminated Washington’s contract.
During a live broadcast of “Monday Night Raw” Washington said that wrestler Titus O’Neil was like “Kobe Bryant at a hotel in Colorado…he’s unstoppable.”
The WWE immediately released an apology over Washington’s comments and fired him soon after. Washington didn’t not take his termination lying down and took to Twitter to vent his frustration:
“Just be normal shut up and be a yes man so you can collect your check and feel like your special. #SELLOUTS!!”
“I remember a time when the WWE didn’t care about breaking the mold but now everyone is so afraid of their own shadow. #RemeberTheFans”
“Thank you WWE for creating me and then killing me because I only portrayed what I grew up watching… The #WWE!!”
The WWE released a statement, explaining their actions: “”Unfortunately, Brian Jossie, playing the character of A.W. was terminated because he continued to exhibit poor judgment by making offensive and inappropriate comments on live television and on social media.”
