The wrestling world mourned the loss of legendary figure Ole Anderson. Meanwhile, Brooks Jensen apologized for wearing an Ole Anderson shirt after learning about his racist allegations, but he still got backlash and this prompted him to take sabbatical from social media.

Brooks Jensen paid tribute to Ole Anderson, who recently passed away, by wearing a shirt with Ole’s image and name. However, Jensen faced criticism as Ole had been accused of racism.

In response, Jensen apologized on social media, explaining he was unaware of the allegations against Ole when he wore the shirt. He emphasized his stance against racism, hate, or bullying, stating that while he respected Ole for his wrestling, he was unaware of the associated allegations at the time.

Jensen still got a lot of backlash even after his apology, and so he took to Twitter once again to announce that he would be taking a break from social media in general.
