Lars Sullivan made many controversial statements of a racist, homophobic, and otherwise awful nature many years ago on a bodybuilding message board but, they recently went viral again.
Now WWE is fining $100,000 for those controversial comments. In an official statement, the company said:
“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.”
It’s good to see WWE taking action although it may be because sponsors like Mars now got involved. We just hope his sensitivity training is more than just Dr.Shelby.
