It seems that wrestling fans aren’t the only ones to have seen Lars Sullivan’s controversial posts. Turns out WWE sponsors are now being made aware of the situation and are eager to engage in conversations with WWE to address the matter.
A Reddit user, Snitchboy, allegedly shared a response he received from Mars Wrigley Confectionary after he e-mailed them, alerting them to Sullivan’s comments.
They replied with the following:
“Dear Loyal Consumer,
Thank you for reaching out to Mars Wrigley Confectionery with your comments.
We learned of Lars Sullivan’s comments recently and share in your shock and disgust. As a values-based company, we find his behavior abhorrent and unacceptable. We have engaged the WWE to discuss this situation and seek to understand what actions they will take to swiftly address this matter.
We hope this information is helpful and wish you a great day!

In the wake of his previous comments coming to light, Sullivan has released an official statement apologizing to anyone he offended. He stresses that his past comments “do not reflect my personal beliefs nor who I am today.”
He has also reportedly discussed his comments and apologized to the New Day. Big E was the first Superstar to publicly acknowledge the Reddit thread that compiled all of Sullivan’s comments.
Sullivan is currently participating in WWE’s European Tour.
