35. Fired WWE Employee Attacks Linda McMahon's Campaign

Date: August 10
Tweeter: @AWPromotions
Tweet: “@linda_mcmahon : Creates jobs my ass!! I'm fired thanks to you and your campaign.”

Making a Kobe Bryant rape joke on a PG-rated wrestling show while Vince McMahon’s wife is running for senate is what we call a massive fail. Former WWE wrestler Abraham Washington did just that. He made matters worse by then tweeting in support of Linda McMahon’s campaign, which led to his termination. However, Washington still had access to his WWE Twitter handle and used it to bury the boss’ wife, as well as single out the CEO for his hypocritical moves throughout the years.
