Forgotten no more, indeed.
WWE’s Jaxson Ryker tweeted his support for President Donald Trump on Tuesday, just hours after Trump gave a controversial press conference and had peaceful protesters tear-gassed so he could stage a photo opportunity in front of a church in Washington, D.C.
Thankful for the @POTUS we have! God bless America. Built of freedom. Forgotten No More

Currently, Ryker stars in WWE as a member of the Forgotten Sons stable, a trio of wrestlers with the gimmicks of “forgotten veterans.” Of the three members, Ryker and stable mate Steve Cutler both served in the United States Marine Corps.
Needless to say, in today’s WWE landscape where diversity and inclusion is (gradually) increasing, several WWE stars past and present took to the Twitter machine to lend Ryker a piece of their mind.
(Warning: Some tweets contain NSFW language.)
I’m thankful you posted this because I’m now aware of what you stand for. When black brothers and sisters are crying, you praise someone that refuses to acknowledge their hurt. https://t.co/O4xm5L3Rpl

The freedom you speak of entitles you to speak your mind all you want. I’m not here to argue that. I just really need to tell you that I think you pushing your shitty wrestling catchphrase as all of this is happening is absolutely fucking pathetic.
Good night. https://t.co/d34xdOXZr6

I’m just keeping him nameless because he’s a sorry ass motherfucker who I refuse to let ride my coattails. He gets no love from me. He gets no rub from me. And if he would like to discuss it in person we have enough mutual acquaintances that he will be able to find me easily. https://t.co/IW25S376L4

This braindead milkshake of a tweet reads like you shook your phone and words just fell out randomly.

I get you’re a “bad guy” on tv. And I’m HOPING that’s all this is. Even then, that ain’t it. But if this is actually your true thoughts – I’ll be really sad, man. 😔 https://t.co/9unml5rsiY

We’ve all said it. We’ve RT’d images and articles. We’ve made articulate tweets and posts. If you cannot comprehend how African-Americans are literally fighting for their lives right now, you choose not to get it.

Delete this, chief. This ain’t it.
Regardless if this is in character or you really think NOW is the right time to post something like this, you should be ashamed. https://t.co/8ge8V0TKZ2
