Tessa Blanchard Embroiled In Bullying & Racism Accusations, Pulled From Event
Posted By: Ben Jordan Kerin on Jan 12, 2020
Tessa Blanchard has been removed from the Heavy Metal Wrestling Cease and Destroy event that is set to take place on January 24 in San Antonio.
This comes after Blanchard was accused of being a bully and racist by multiple female wrestlers on social media. Blanchard tweeted:
“Hey women, try supporting one another. Cool things happen.”
It was followed up with a reply from WWE NXT Superstar Chelsea Green:
“You’ve consistently put down, bullied, and belittled countless female coworkers, including me. Is that support?”
Current NWA Women’s Champion Allysin Kay added:
“Remember when you spat in a black woman’s face and called her the N-word in Japan? Was that you “supporting women”? The AUDACITY of this tweet. The reason I’ve never said anything until now is because it wasn’t my story to tell. I made it clear to La Rosa that I had her back, and today was the day she gave me permission. You can’t force someone to come forward, but you can be there for them. THAT is ‘supporting women.”
Puerto Rican wrestler Black Rose then took to her Twitter account, thanking Green and Kay. She tweeted:
“@Sienna & @ImChelseaGreen Thank you so much!…That story!…Yes, that’s happens on Japan 2017! If Tessa Blanchard do not Remember it…Can I! I am not a mean girl with any coworkers around the world. Be kind of #racist is not ridiculous is a #sickness.”
The promotion issued the following:
“Tessa Blanchard has been removed from our scheduled event on January 24th, 2020. We take these allegations levied against her very seriously. An updated card will be released shortly. For refund information, please contact Walt@HeavyMetalWresting.com“
