Wrestling School, Indie Promotion Cut Ties With Wrestler Over Racial TikTok Video


-- Independent wrestler Jeffery Hume, who is also known as Jay Hunter, had his membership at the WWA4 Pro Wrestling School in Atlanta, GA terminated after an extremely racial TikTok video was posted by him and a friend, Stephanie Freeman. In the video, the pair are shown describing black people (referred to with the N-word) as being fatherless, robbing white people, eating watermelon and fried chicken and spending time in jail. The two of them were immediately investigated by Carrollton High School, where they are seniors, before the school decided to expel them.

“Tonight it has been brought to my attention that an inappropriate video was created on the TikTok social media platform. Please know that this video has been addressed immediately and any student involved in the production of this video will face serious consequences ... This type of behavior will not be tolerated.”

“(This behavior is) not representative of the district’s respect for all people. The racist behavior observed in the video easily violates this standard. They are no longer students at Carrollton High School.”

-- After learning of the video, WWA4 Pro Wrestling School released the following statement:

-- Meanwhile, Victory Championship Wrestling (VCW), where Hume wrestled occasionally, also moved quickly to distance themselves him from, noting that he would no longer be appearing for them.

Effective immediately, Jay Hunter (Jeffery Hume) has been released by VCW and will no longer appear on our programming moving forward.
