Bianca Belair’s career has been adorned with significant achievements, yet regrettably, she has also encountered instances of racist attacks from certain individuals. However, in the wake of these deplorable incidents, Belair has received steadfast support from her fellow WWE stars. Recently, she has bravely addressed the racist attacks she endured following her inclusion as a cover athlete for WWE 2K24.

A promotional photo featuring Bianca Belair, Rhea Ripley, and Cody Rhodes surfaced online ahead of WWE 2K24’s release. Regrettably, the post was tainted by racist comments targeting Bianca Belair, with some expressing a desire for her removal from WWE.

The likes of Becky Lynch stood in solidarity for The EST of WWE. While speaking to MetroUK, Bianca Belair noted that she can handle all the attacks she gets but admitted she didn’t check the hateful messages.

“The negativity never actually got through to me. I’m not the one that goes in searches or vanity searches my name anyway. But I’ve still to this day never actually seen what was said. I’m 35 years old, and I’m able to handle that. But kids, that’s what kids are going through now. So we have to make sure that we stand up for that type of stuff.”
