WWE says they are working to ban a virtual audience member from future events who could be seen in the closing moments of Raw displaying what appeared to be KKK imagery on their screen.
In case you didn’t notice, one of the screens near the front row in the ThunderDome last night showed a man who appeared to be wearing a KKK robe waving a confederate flag. This occurred right before, as well as during, the attack from RETRIBUTION on Dominick and Rey Mysterio.
When reached for comment on the matter, WWE sent us the following statement.
“This abhorrent behavior does not reflect WWE‘s values and we have zero tolerance for these unacceptable acts. We are working to ban those involved from future events and per our policies, any inappropriate actions result in the removal from the live stream.”
It’s worth noting that the company is dealing with thousands of fans coming through the experience at the same time and one source tells us the offender was immediately removed from the broadcast after being caught.
there were also images of Chris Benoit and Super Mario that fans were able to get into ThunderDome seats for last night’s show
