WhatCulture today announced a number of departures of some of their more popular staff which hasn't gone down well with their readers. A statement put out by the website today read:
It is with sadness that we must today announce that Adam Blampied, Adam Pacitti, Ross Tweddell, Sam Driver and Jack King will be leaving WhatCulture in the coming weeks to pursue other projects.
We'd like to thank them for their work over the past two years and wish them all the best in their future endeavours.
While we understand this news will disappoint a section of our audience, we'll be using this opportunity to diversify and expand the product as a whole.
We'll be introducing brand-new shows, brand-new personalities, and freshening up existing elements of all our channels. We look forward to sharing more announcements on this in the coming weeks.
Their twitter page has been filled with upset fans, disgruntled former staff members and those who have threatened to terminate their subscription to the popular wrestling community. You can read some of the angry tweets by expanding the tweet below. We have also embedded some.

Now seems like as good a time as any to explain a little bit about what WhatCulture boss Matt Holmes is like as a person.— Liam Lambert 🐑🐑 (@Crowtagonist) September 19, 2017
Matt Holmes is a liar. He is a snake. In wrestling terms, he is Kevin Owens without the charisma. Randy Orton without the athleticism.— Liam Lambert 🐑🐑 (@Crowtagonist) September 19, 2017
I'm out then. Enjoy whatculture but they were a huge reason. pic.twitter.com/ASObzWkRcK— Jamboski (@jamboski) September 19, 2017
