Earlier this year, Tiffany Stratton made her debut on the SmackDown roster, indicating WWE’s significant plans for the young talent. However, Stratton became entangled in controversy following a racist video involving Jade Cargill. It seems that the situation was more serious than initially perceived.

Controversy ignited when Tiffy Time shared a now-deleted video on her Instagram story. In the video, she was seen slapping Jade Cargill while a voiceover uttered “Black bi***,” with Bianca Belair in view, accompanied by laughing emojis. Fans swiftly picked up on the racist implications, resulting in widespread condemnation. In response to the backlash, Stratton eventually removed the video.

According to Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it was noted that if it were someone less important, they might have been fired instantly if they were in the same situation as Stratton. Many fans forwarded the video to Triple H, making it a notable and serious situation.

”Fans started going crazy calling it racist and she took it down. Basically if this was someone who wasn’t a star they’d be fired instantly. Lots of fans sent the video on X to Paul Levesque so it was a pretty significant situation.”


We have also reported that Tiffany Stratton didn’t face the fallout from the racist video and she will compete as part of the Queen of The Ring tournament on SmackDown this week, where she’ll square off against Bianca Belair. Regardless, it’s clear Stratton won’t do such a thing ever again, for her sake.
