Taryn Terrell (a/k/a Tiffany) noted the following Saturday on Twitter when asked if she would return to her former employer, World Wrestling Entertainment:
“No…if I have to sleep with people in power to keep or continue progressing in my job, I’d rather be poor.”
She backtracked her remarks Sunday, saying it wasn’t about WWE or anyone in particular, but rather a generalized statement of companies she’s worked for.
“I’m deleting a certain text because it’s being taken the wrong way,” she wrote. “It was certainly not talking about anyone or any incident. Just that I’ve worked many jobs in which the casting couch has existed and I refuse to ever take part in that. so it was a generalized statement of companies I’ve worked for, which none of you know what companies they were; and It was not about wwe. so I apologize if it was taken out of context and reads differently than what I meant.”
Meanwhile, former WWE talent Shelly Martinez (a/k/a Ariel) gave her take on Terrell’s initial remark being deemed ‘shocking’.
“For the record I do not think Tiffany’s response was shocking,” she wrote on Twitter. “Simply reality.”
