In an Instagram post in response to AEW star Evil Uno encouraging fans to support those in need within the industry during the coronavirus pandemic, Braun Strowman posted the following:
“Here we go with more of the somebody pay for my bills stuff. If you can’t afford to pay your bills maybe you should change professions. That’s why I quit strongman. I loved it, but I couldn’t afford to live so instead of making a go fund me or a Patreon wanting someone else to take care of me I went out and worked harder than I ever have in my life to get to where I am. What happened to being accountable for your own actions????!!!”
He followed up with:
“And for anyone that goes ‘that’s easy for you to say you’re a WWE Superstar’ just [an] FYI 7 years ago I moved to Florida with everything I owned in a Kia Soul with $150 to my name when I started this!!! [sic]”
As you can imagine Strowman’s lack of empathy has caused a huge backlash on social media, one which WWE probably could do without right now.
