AEW President Tony Khan is famous for variety of reasons. He truly loves professional wrestling and fans are glad he is the one doing the heavy lifting in the company. He also gave an apt response to a fan who accused him of virtue signaling.

The AEW President took to Twitter and uploaded a clip of Warner Bros. Discovery’s networks celebrating “Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month” all through May. He also included a nice little caption.

“This is something I’m sensitive about while putting on wrestling shows together in AEW,” Khan said. “I celebrate Asian Pacific American heritage month by trying to make sure we feature AAPI wrestlers all the time.”

A fan took to Twitter and accused the AEW president of virtue signaling by being in front of cameras. This fan said, “You really should stop going in front of cameras. Especially to virtue signal, that’s slathering cringe all over cringe. Not a winning combo.” Then Tony Khan replied to the fan and had an apt response.


Sorry for being Asian-American, Phillip. I just thought it was cool they invited me to come in and talk about it. #AEWRampage coming up now!

Tony Khan also scorched a fan who criticized AEW Dynamite’s viewership numbers. Khan will always be vocal and defined himself whenever he can and that’s unlikely to ever change.
