The Zahra Schreiber controversy is still lingering, and already another woman working in WWE"s Developmental system finds herself in a precarious position due to past Twitter messages that fans have found and shared online.

Wrestling, Inc. has the report of posts made by Nhooph Al-Areebi, a 20 year old Canadian wrestler of Arabic descent signed earlier this year as part of a group including Apollo Crews, Billie Kay & Peyton Royce. She has yet to appear on television, but who has worked house shows as "Jasmin" - including a Fort Pierce show two weeks ago where she played the Leva Bates role as tag champs The Vaudevillains back-up against Alexa Bliss and Blake & Murphy.

Al-Areebi deactivated her Twitter account after the controversial messages appeared on reddit, but there are screen shots available of the Tweets, which include both her making comments and agreeing with others. Those appear below - CONTENT WARNING: Racial slurs, racially insensitive language:

Those posts date back to 2011 and 2012 when Al-Areebi was 17 or 18 years old. Another Instagram post (also since deleted) was discovered from last year, which features her making comments about an African-American wrestler she was paired with at an independent show:

Cageside Seats has reached out to WWE for comment, but have not heard back as of this writing.

UPDATE: WWE released the following statement to Cageside Seats:

"WWE conducted a thorough investigation and has determined that Nhooph Al-Areebi's (aka Jasmin) Twitter account was used without her knowledge when she was 16 and 17 years old. Jasmin remains apologetic for any offensive remarks that were made."
