A.W. claims he was fired over supporting Linda McMahon via Twitter
A.W. just seems to keep digging himself into a deeper and deeper hole. He recently told the CT Post that he was fired because he publically supported Linda McMahon's senate campaign on Twitter.
The tweet read, "#AWPromotion$ says vote for Linda McMahon!!! The PTP'z support Linda and so should you! #voteordie4Linda"A spokesperson for WWE, Brian Flinn, was quick to refute this. "WWE is a non-partisan organization. Superstars as well as employees are free to support any political party or candidate they choose," Flinn wrote. "Unfortunately, Brian Jossie, playing the character of A.W., was terminated because he continued to exhibit poor judgment by making offensive and inappropriate comments on live television and on social media."
A.W. (real name Brian Jossie) was fired late last week for comments comparing Titus O'Neil to Kobe Bryant allegedly raping a woman in a Colorado hotel room.
Jossie also told the CT Post "I don't hate the WWE. I love the company," Jossie said. "But the way the politics are with her campaign, it screwed me."
At this point, between these comments and others he's made publically, I don't know if he has any more bridges to burn.
