The Acclaimed’s Anthony Bowens took to Twitter on Thursday to react to a fan who was hurling homophobic slurs at him during this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite.
As seen during Wednesday night’s Dynamite broadcast, The Acclaimed and 2point0 faced off against the Varsity Blondes and Jurassic Express in an eight-man tag team match.
During the match, a fan in the crowd was heard audibly yelling slurs as Bowens was in the ring. There were even some transphobic slurs for Nyla Rose during her match. In addition to that, there were racist comments being shouted at Riho.
“This is why I posted that photo the other day. Stuff like this unfortunately still exists. Not phased, I’ll just keep fighting against stuff like this til the day I die.”
The person right behind me at All Out was loudly sharing transphobic statements when Nyla Rose came on. It really bothered me but I didn't know what to do.
