Britney Abrahams, who is a former writer for WWE, took aim at the company in a scathing manner with a damning lawsuit. She filed a lawsuit following her termination for taking home a WrestleMania chair without permission. That lawsuit is not a good look for WWE, and there is a lot to unpack.
While the initial reason for her firing was reportedly related to taking a WrestleMania event chair without permission, the lawsuit goes beyond that, encompassing various other allegations.
Abrahams’ legal action against WWE dove into more than just the circumstances surrounding her termination. The lawsuit raises additional concerns and grievances that she has against the company. Several racist pitches received quite a spotlight.
WWE was accused of racist creative pitches in that lawsuit. In fact, the company was called out for many racist practices and creative angles. Britney Abrahams might have filed this huge lawsuit, and a lot of information came out about the company’s creative department. That being said, there hasn’t been much momentum in that case.
There’s a new development in the ongoing lawsuit filed by Britney Abrahams against the company, Vince McMahon, and former WWE executive Stephanie McMahon. Abrahams alleges that WWE discriminated against her and retaliated when she spoke out against “racist scripts.”
According to the latest update from PW Insider, court records from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York indicate that WWE must respond to the case by June 26th.
Alongside WWE and the McMahons, several other defendants are named in the lawsuit. These include Christine Lubrano, the SVP of Creative Writing Operations, Chris Dunn, a former member of the Creative Team, Ryan Callhan, Jen Pepperman, a current member of the Creative Team, and Mike Heller, a former member of the Creative Team. The lawsuit implicates multiple individuals associated with WWE in Abrahams’ allegations.
We will have to see how this situation develops in the weeks to come. This is certainly not over by a long shot, and now WWE must respond to these allegations.
