Taynara Conti mocked Mae Young Classic competitor Lacey Lane over her dreadlocked hair via Twitter Thursday night.
Conti earned a Second-Round Match on this week’s episode of The Mae Young Classics against Lane. During a face-off, Lane nailed Conti in the face with her dreadlocks after being shoved by the self-proclaimed “Real Black Belt of NXT.” Beth Phoenix quickly stopped them from coming to blows.
Conti took to Twitter and called Lane’s hair dirty, in response to the above clip.
“That felt like she had not washed that hair for weeks. Take a shower and wash that “hair” before getting in the ring against the REAL BLACK BELT.”
Conti deleted her tweet after receiving backlash from fans who perceived her insult as racist.
