WWE star Jaxson Ryker faced flak not just from netizens but also from his fellow mates like Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn and others. Through Twitter, Ryker supported US President Donald Trump despite his insensitivity towards handling the anti-racism protests post George Floyd’s death.
A few days ago, Jaxson Ryker tweeted, “Thankful for the @POTUS we have! God bless America. Built of freedom. Forgotten No More”. Following this tweet, Ryker was bashed heavily by netizens and even WWE stars. Now, after generating so many negative reactions, Donald Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr. has reacted to the tweet.
Donald Trump Jr. responded by tweeting, “My father will always stand up for our country and everyone in it. Thank you for your service in the Marines!”
My father will always stand up for our country and everyone in it.
Thank you for your service in the Marines! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 https://t.co/7XbCElYpvg

Meanwhile, recently WWE superstar Roman Reigns showed his support to #BlackLivesMatter movement. Reigns declared that there is no grey area in this situation. He said that racism is wrong and that parents need to teach this to their children for a better future. Roman Reigns took to Twitter and wrote – “Racism is wrong. There is no grey area here. IT IS WRONG. Teach your kids this every day, so we can rid ourselves and our future of this life-ending disease. #JusticeForGeorgeFlyod #BlacklivesMaters”.
Other than Roman, current WWE divas also stood up for Floyd. Naomi tweeted – “So sick of this happening to our people! On top of that nothing is being done about it. Something has to be done and many things have to be changed! Rest In Peace #georgefloyd”.
