WWE No Longer Working With California Independent Wrestler Who Wrote Anti-Gay Messages On Twitter

According to OutSports.com, WWE are distancing themselves from South California-based independent wrestler Scorpio Sky after the ten-year grappling veteran posted anti-gay messages on his Twitter account.

Sky, who appeared as “Harold” in one of Daniel Bryan and Kane’s anger management classes in August, wrote the word “faggot” on Twitter and attacked people who didn’t like it.

A wrestling fan who argued with Sky via Twitter over his use of the anti-gay slur contacted WWE about the wrestler’s language. WWE Fan Services responded: “WWE strongly believes that everyone should be treated with respect and this principle is the foundation of our anti-bullying initiative, “Be a STAR”. Mr. Andrews no longer works for WWE and we have no plans to work with him in the future.”

Sky also works with Lucha VaVOOM, and the company is not happy with his anti-gay tweets. The company stated to OutSports.com, “Please rest assured that Lucha VaVOOM does not condone this language, and further, it’s important to us specify that we do not employ the character “Scorpio Sky.” The wrestler that plays “Scorpio Sky” appears sometimes, but not under that moniker, and he does not have access to speak for Lucha VaVOOM or any of his Lucha VaVOOM characters. However, we have emailed him our grievances and await his response.”

One month prior to appearing for WWE, Sky competed in TNA Wrestling’s X Division Championship Tournament as Mason Andrews.

    So racism and sexism is ok, but not homophobia? Well unless you’re a star in the company. Then they’ll turn a blind eye and give you a free pass.

      no racism isn’t ok, by you saying it is ok it’s saying its perfectly fine tp go out and say a racial slur or sexist slur to someone.

      • IKeepsit100

        you missed the point

      • RAWSucks


  • Flare Demon

    Its because hes black.

    • Puppet H

      just like AW

    • IKeepsit100

      what does black have to do with gay?

    • Hobo With A Shot Gun

      Yea because he is blake

  • Mr_Shrimp_Vendor

    Gotta love freedom of speech. ;)

    • ._.

      He has freedom of speech. He was able to say that without getting arrested or a fine. But companies also have the freedom to hire people they chose. And if they don’t choose to hire him for things he says online, it’s their freedom not to.

    • Lefty McRighty

      Yeah, Freedom of speech. About that. That means you can LEGALLY say anything that isn’t going to incite a riot. However no company is under any obligation to keep you if you publicly state any form of political or otherwise divisive opinion. If they feel their companies reputation can be harmed by employing someone who mouths off about subjects that are touchy, they have the right to not employ them anymore. This isn’t about freedom of speech as much as it is about public decorum. Sky obviously didn’t understand that the internet is still a public forum and there are consequences to his actions. I am sure this lesson is now learned.

    This country gets so damn butthurt over WORDS. FUCKING WORDS. Words cant hurt you. Now a train running you over………….that can hurt you. Stop being so soft people.

    • pwnez

      Words don’t hurt, yet there has been hundreds of teen suicides due to people saying racial slurs and anti-gay remarks directly at them. Words can in fact hurt someone if you target them enough. You’re a prime example of someone who is flat out ignorant.

      • http://www.facebook.com/jeremycounty Jeremy-County Roberts

        LMFAO. Kids are just to damn soft today. If you are going to kill yourself over being name called then goodbye. Kids need to learn to stand up from themselves like in the old days. Someone picks on you then you beat their ass. Even if you get your ass kicked you at least stood up for yourself and the bullies will back dowm.

        • pwnez

          Well, when these kids don’t have supportive parents and no one to fall back on then that’s easier said than done. Oh, the bullies will back down? What fantasy world do you live in? That’s not always the case although I wish it were. I stand by what I said, you’re ignorant.

          • http://www.facebook.com/jeremycounty Jeremy-County Roberts

            You clearly were bullied as a kid because you sure did attack this topic. I’m not saying name calling is right. But in the world we live in today people get wayyyyyyyyyy to hurt over words. Kids need to learn to be tough and that falls on the parents also to teach them to not let words and people bring them down.

          • Guest

            Back in my day, we reserved the word “faggot” for people like you, Jeremy.

          • http://www.facebook.com/jeremycounty Jeremy-County Roberts


          • pwnez

            I called you out on being ignorant but if that’s your conclusion from all this then you’re an even bigger fool than I thought.

          • http://www.facebook.com/jeremycounty Jeremy-County Roberts

            whatever man. I’m not gonna fight with you. later :p

          • Lefty McRighty

            Not everyone responds to, or should respond to, hate with violence. We have evolved at least far enough that we are starting to understand that in order for everyone to have a happy life, we need to treat each other with a bit of respect. You can have opinions all you want, and there are message boards all over the internet where you can hatespew all you wish, but if you go out in a public forum that is as popular as Twitter and you use a name people can track you to and you spout of disrespectful shit you deserve what you get. Consider his not being employed anymore in the same light as him getting his ass beat. Only now instead of the ass beating being given only by the one who was directly offended, it is now by the entire civilized world who have moved on from such rampant disregard for decorum and are demanding that you act right in public. The ol’ right cross has been replaced with a pink slip during a recession.

            You’re a pretentious individual. You seem to act sophisticated but the pretentious part of you shows very easily. If you truly want to educate someone on a subject, you don’t finish off your statement with insulting remarks such as labeling the person ignorant or a fool. As that is in poor taste and unproductive! And the fact that you did that in all three of your statements shows that are not mature enough to educate anyone in anything.

            The first thing you should have realized is that people do not think exactly alike. You and Jeremy have opposing views obviously. You cannot force someone to accept your ways of thinking and cannot insult them when you are unsuccessful in doing so. What you should have done was agreed to disagree and move on in a mature manner. If you are going to educate someone legitimately whether the other party learns or not, then refrain yourself from ending your lesson in discourteous behavior. People that do that show immaturity and usually lack credibility. The way I see it, you are no longer credible after that display of poor social etiquette. Pretentious behavior is never respected.

            Ignorance is ignorance. People don’t get a free pass just because someone else may not phrase it according to your standards.

          • William Hughes

            Well I agree with Jeremy- County Roberts children when I was growing up it was sticks and stones. Hell if I got my ass kicked in a school fight my dad would kick my ass again when I got home so I trained and became stronger and a better fighter thanks to jiu jitsu for 10 years and 6 years of Active Army I also have a bachelors degree in Engineering from MIT I’m well educated and I can kick ass. All I am saying is parents stop coddling your children and allowing them to grow up weak cause its a hard world and its your job to make sure they can handle it. Dont be a pussy and and don’t let your child be either. Oh and one last thing my brother is gay and he doesn’t care if you call him fag cause he isn’t weak and an my mother is a lesbian so everyone stop making excuses!

          • http://www.facebook.com/craig.deboard Craig DeBoard

            In the world we live in today people get waaaaaaaaaaay too butt hurt over not being able to name call and get away with it.

          • Kjhaltz

            Or when your parents hate the fact you’re gay too.

        • heterosexual

          You may be a breeder, but it would serve the world better if you didn’t.

        • http://www.facebook.com/craig.deboard Craig DeBoard

          And that’s what this is. People standing up for themselves. The guy acts like a dick and says stupid shit ,so WWE stands up to him and fires his ass.

          Seriously YOU need to grow up.

      Unfortunately society has become exactly that man.. soft!

      Get your redneck bitch ass off of my internet. I never said you were allowed to bring stupid here.

  • Gr8ness

    One of these days people will realize that racism,homophobia, and anything else that people are sensitive about will not do anything to help your career in the long run.

  • http://www.twitter.com/SouthKidd803 SavageBomber

    Guess “Harold” learned nothing from Dr. Shelby, huh?

  • Hitmaniac

    Even if for some stupid reason you are homophobic, in this day and age it just isn’t going to work out well for you to let this be known to the general public. How stupid do you have to be to work in the entertainment industry, where your success is largely decided by your popularity, and make a comment like that?

  • Beaunerx

    Freedom of speech and right to an opinion = F You

  • Trevor

    At the end of the day, you can’t be homophobic, racist, or sexist and work for a company. It’s just the way things are. Not a big deal.

  • http://twitter.com/JamieEvsxx JamieEvsxx

    to be fair…if this was England, he’d just be calling someone a meatball lol…xD…but in all seriousness…sometimes you really have to be careful with what you say on Twitter, especially if it can come across as offensive and could possibly cost you your job (AW’s a good example of this too)…personally, I’m not bothered about the whole faggot thing but yeah, it can piss some people off so it’s best to keep things to yourself…=/…and besides I’ve heard better insults than “faggot”…I mean, I’d expect 12 year olds to run round saying it not grown men lol…xD

  • raven

    Its stupid he is a grown ass man he should b able to say what he fuckin wants

    • G.I.R.L.

      And he did. WWE is a billion dollar company that is marketed nowadays to children; they should be able to hire and/or fire whom they want, and they did as well.

  • Guest2218

    When reached for a comment Jerry Lawler said, “Haha looky that Cole! Antonio Cesaro is wearing a purse! Wooohooo!”

  • Backstreet Bungalow

    It’s hard to be sucker free in a world of lollipops. Everyone on here trying to act like they’re so innocent, getting ass chapped cause someone they don’t know said a mean word. Now you want to go run and tell mommy and daddy. Are you going to cry ifI call you a pussy? Everytime I come on this site someone is being called a fag or bitch but I doesn’t offend me I just laugh cause I know haf the people on here are hypocritic morons. GROW A PAIR IWC c====8

  • http://twitter.com/TalkToHeaney John Enuch Heaney

    Wait, are you telling me the word “faggot” still means gay? As they said in South Park “You don’t have to be gay to be a faggot.” I use the word every day as a synonym for the word “asshole”.
