Zahra Schreiber fired by WWE for 'inappropriate and offensive remarks'

Zahra Schreiber on Twitter

WWE NXT performer Zahra Schreiber has been fired by the company, according to a report from TMZ, two days after old social media postings of hers featuring Nazi symbols began buzzing online.

Further confusing matters was Schreiber's debut as a new character, valet and sister of a heel-turned Solomon Crowe, on a NXT house show Saturday night, hours after her old Instagram posts and other Twitter conversations that revealed some unflattering views on her part began circulating. Fans were confused by the delay, considering how quickly WWE acted in the case of Hulk Hogan, and speculated if her relationship with WWE champion Seth Rollins - with who she was targeted in a nude photo leak earlier this year - was protecting her.

No need for further speculation, if the report is true, with WWE terminating her contract "due to inappropriate and offensive remarks."

Schreiber had not yet appeared on camera for either NXT or the main roster (aside from a crowd shot next to Rollins at the TakeOver: Brooklyn WWE Network special), so no changes will need to be made to storylines on television.

UPDATE: Here's WWE full (yet still brief) statement:

WWE has released Zahra Schreiber due to inappropriate and offensive remarks she made that were recently brought to our attention.
