Late last night, Jordan Myles, who was signed by WWE back in February and has since won the NXT Breakout Tournament and wrestled Adam Cole for the NXT championship, posted this:

Very early this morning, he came right back with this:
I will keep posting this till my voice is heard. I’m not sorry for anything I say or do.— Jordan Myles (@GoGoMyles) October 27, 2019

When asked about it, Myles said the design was supposed to be inspired by the Rolling Stones but he doesn’t accept that explanation.
Because THEY are blind and stuck in their ways. THEY don’t see the disrespect in producing a design that screams racism against African Americans. THEY have been blinded for years and THEY NEED A REPROGRAMMING BECAUSE THEY ARE IGNORANT!— Jordan Myles (@GoGoMyles) October 27, 2019
It appears the t-shirt is no longer for sale.
WWE has yet to publicly comment on the matter.
