WWE Issues Statement On Darren Young’s Recent Comments


UPDATE x 2: As previously reported, Darren Young took to Twitter to criticize WWE’s decision to tour Abu Dhabi, where homosexuality is a crime and punishable by jail sentences. Young then deleted that Tweet and said his “freedom of speech is gone” and that he “like no none has my back and it upsets me. The struggle is real. I’m human.”

WWE has issued a statement in response, which reads:

WWE does not discriminate against individuals regardless of age, race, religion or sexual orientation, and we continue to proudly support Fred Rosser (aka WWE Superstar Darren Young) for being open about his sexuality.

Unfortunately, WWE cannot change cultures and laws around the world, and thus we did not send Fred Rosser to the United Arab Emirates for our upcoming events for his own protection.

WWE also fully supports Fred Rosser’s right to express his views on personal social media accounts rather than WWE’s corporate platforms.

UPDATE: Darren Young has posted two more tweets after his prior post was deleted. He wrote:

ORIGINAL: Darren Young has posted a criticism on Twitter of WWE’s tour of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. Homosexuality is a crime and punishable by jail sentences. He wrote:

Why do we bring the best entertainment into a country like abu dhabi and they look down upon women and gays? I get it! #MillionsofDollars

The post has since been deleted.
