AEW fans can be some of the biggest die-hards out there. They love Tony Khan’s company because it gives them an alternative to what was for far too long a business that only had one major national brand. AEW has brought in some of the best wrestlers from around the world and continues to churn out excellent television. They’ve even occasionally poked fun at the competition.
A hot topic on wrestling Twitter this afternoon regards an alleged post that was put out by the @AEWOnTV account. The meme was meant to mock the Alexa Bliss therapy session that marked her return to WWE Raw. Instead, a firestorm of criticism broke out as many fans called the tweet insensitive.
The tweet and the therapy meme were quickly wiped from the account. A war of words broke out between those who agreed that the tweet was inappropriate and others who thought it was funny. The polarizing nature of the internet never fails to rear its head.
One fan compared the behavior of AEW fans to a cult. Another chimed in to explain their reason for the negative reaction. There appears to be a major communication failure between AEW’s supporters and haters.
“It is this week’s most tone deaf tweet thumbed out by the clowns who run the AEW Twitter account. Basically backhanded mental health as “watch us you’ll feel better”
The off-color joke could be seen by some as offensive. Others thought it was hilarious and saw no problem with it. One thing is for sure: If there is something for AEW lovers and haters to argue about online, they’ll find it.
