Lars Sullivan Fined $100,000 By WWE For Past Controversial CommentsMay 14, 2019
WWE has taken action on past comments made by Lars Sullivan.
A few months back comments made by WWE Superstar Lars Sullivan from between 2007 and 2013 surfaced online and the comments were not favorable with most. After a few weeks, all seemed to calm down and the comments were not talked about anymore.
Over the last few weeks, the comments have resurfaced even with former WWE Tag Team Champion Big E commenting that people backstage in the company were aware.
Many are aware. If true, he has to bear the albatross of being a bigot & working in a company that is now filled with minorities.

Today WWE took action on these previous comments and released the following statement to Fightful.com,
“WWE supports a culture of inclusion regardless of gender, race, religion or sexual orientation, and we are committed to embracing all individuals as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees, performers and fans worldwide.
Dylan Miley (aka Lars Sullivan) will be fined $100,000 and required to complete sensitivity training for offensive commentary uncovered from his past. WWE will also facilitate meetings for Dylan with community organizations to foster further discussion around the power of social media and the impact of your words.”
