What the fuck has become of Lars Sullivan? Its now become common knowledge that NXT call ups immediately lose their overness when they leave NXT to the main roster since its abundantly clear the main roster not only not watches NXT they also don't watch the indies and have no idea who these fuckers are since Vince doesn't promote them hard enough

But Lars case might be the worst case of them all since most of the time when wrestlers don't become mega stars they float either in the midcard or undercard and just kinda take it. Not Lars. 1st he has a fucking panic attack the day of his debut when Vince is telling him he was originally going to face fucking John Cen at Wrestlemania, disappears for months on end then finally comes back to bully the undercard and now this happens.

The Revival w/ Anderson and Gallows literally ticking away the clock so they can go to AEW, Lio Rush pitching about racism, Luke Harper being denied his release, EC3 allegedly being in the same boat that Michael Bennett is with the company and now this law suit. This is beyond the point of parody Vince is no longer just insane he's fucking dangerous to himself and others. Lars is not worth this lawsuit he made his choice.

Let's think about this for a second.

Vince's contracts let him randomly add time to them at his whim. It stands to reason there's a "I can fine you for whatever reason I want" clause in there too. Lars is an independent contractor, so the terms of his employment are outlined by that contract. He has no protections an employee might have.

Contracts themselves could be illegal, yes. Lars would have to sue WWE for the privilege of finding out before a judge. Both he and WWE know he can't afford to, but for the sake of argument, let's say he does and somehow wins, ok, he's not fined, but he's certainly out of a job and isn't hireable anywhere else.

This is another in a long list of reasons why WWE wrestlers should consider unionizing. To collectively bargain how they can be punished for things and also have a way to support wrestlers who get into these disputes.

If Lars is actually seeking people out and asking for advice, that honestly means more than this fine or the scriptpology from before. I don't like the guy as a wrestler but this whole thing should (but won't) end at that really, barring any future transgressions.

He deserves to get shit for being a racist obv but

I agree with the comments that he shouldn't be fined for something WWE already knew about. That'll set the precedent that WWE could hire anyone in the future, knowing about some shit they did, with all intention to then fine them later for it (so they could promise whatever expensive contract knowing they'll jab you later for something they already know about).

Not defending his bullshit but you can see how WWE could abuse this.

If it's even legal at all, him not being an employee.

Gotta be a weird exploitative contract that stipulates your contractor can straight up take an un-determined amount of money from you if they see fit.

I brought this up during Hogans fiasco:
some of you may know about this but most probably don't; there was a radio DJ called the Grease Man. he was one of those shock jock types, lewd jokes etc. He was nationally syndicated for a while but was based out of D.C. area.
He said a racist "joke" on the air one time and was subsequently canned, and his career was basically over.

In order to set things right, instead of just apologizing he went out and volunteered at various Black charities and inner city soup kitchens, and sought therapy.
He legitimately tried to better himself. Some people forgave him, and some people never will. But he gave a genuine effort to stop bein an asshole.


Hard to say what Lars will do in terms of making things right, but I guess personally going to the guys in the back and apologizing for being a dick (and not a somewhat fake apology like Hogan), and seeking suggestions of how to make things better is a good step and seems genuine. People don't have to give a shit though, I suppose

This. The action itself isn't different, the justification behind it is. If people were getting Lars in trouble "for the lulz" it would be business as usual for the old internet, there's just something inherently uncomfortable about people doing this shit thinking they're fighting some kind of moral crusade, especially while they financially support WWE. I'm glad Lars is seeking people out and apologizing face to face, hopefully he's sincere in doing it, but man if that fine is a shoot it's a crock of shit.

We don't know for sure, but there was almost certainly heat between WWE and their sponsors. If some toy company paying them a ton of money tells them "fix this or we will punish you (by dropping our sponsorship deal)", of course they're going to bend over backwards to please them so it doesn't come to that.

They don't exactly have have a ton of replacement sponsorship deals in the works, and with their ratings, I'm not surprised.

Part of his job is being a public figure for the company, not someone with no visibility; despite the stuff he said being before his hiring, it affects the company in the present and damages their brand.

Where it gets fucky is that they apparently told him it was okay when he brought it up before; while I don't expect him to bring forth this stuff when he was getting hired, there's probably some bullshit in their contract about being punished for things that damage the company while they're under employment. With that in mind, it's more that he's getting fined for people finding out now, rather than him having said anything.

It’s just fucking weird having this in a company that is fine to feature Hogan the way they do or promote Warrior as a saint. Vince himself has used the word jolly african-american on his fucking shows. Their morals are flexible based on the dollar amount which is expected by a company trying to make money but people seem so fickle as to who they’re gonna go after and what they’re gonna be offended by. And overall it just hurts any potential future the guy could have. Can’t have him attain too high a level of success cause it’ll be the same argument. Lars is fucked, whether that’s his own fault or not.

That seems to be the only way guys that Vince like get reprimanded.

Both Usos got DUIs, became Smackdown tag champs in February, days after Jimmy's? DUI. Didn't hear about any sponsors caring.
The Women's WrestleMania Battle Royal was named after Moolah, Snickers became aware of her shady past, demanded it not be named after it, and WWE did.
AAnd now Lars gets fined because WWE's sponsors wanted them to punish him.

He's being fined because he's a public relations liability. That's all. Don't pretend this is serious anti-racism, when Vince McMahon - who okayed the choppy choppy your peepee skit, the DX black face segment, and so on and so forth - is still at the helm of the company. Lars is a stupid ass motherfucker but punitive action by corporate against workers over self-expression outside the company is something to oppose even when we don't like the person who's the victim, because it could happen to people on our side too.

People forget that Tipper Gore was railing against Public Enemy and Dead Kennedys just a few decades ago, that authoritarians during the Bush era publicly destroyed Dixie Chicks memorabilia, with the Dixie Chicks themselves being black listed from corporate radio, because they spoke out against the Iraq war when the war was still popular (which makes the Dixie Chicks more punk in my eyes than bands like the Vandals, who played a tour for da troopz in Iraq, and who honestly never wrote a song worth listening to more than twice, but I digress).

WWE corporate makes decisions like these to appeal to popular sentiments, but popular sentiment is fickle, and subject to fits of hysteria. I get that the victim is despicable, but even the despicable are supposed to be afforded some defense. A major fine from one's employer for personal expression made before one was even employed with the company is indefensible. WWE is transparently trying to cover its own ass for hiring him and pushing him without vetting him first. They're the ones who fucked up, Lars would just be another asshole online otherwise.

The guy who made that post straight up said he wanted to ruin Lars' life to the point where even the circlejerkers started seeing him as kind of unhinged.

Which really gets to the heart of it. At the end of the day, social media outrage mobs over racism and shit are largely not about correcting an ill or making things better for others. It's about people getting off on knowing that they have some measure of power over another person, be it some celebrity who knows they can put an average joe in their place or some nobody who thinks they can tank the career of someone with a level of fame.

That's the problem, that it clearly is an issue but WWE chose to handwave it away at the time

Now they've changed their mind which, look, couldn't happen to a worse guy, but still, it seems deceptive on WWE's part to hire someone with full ability to dock them a huge some of money without learning anything new about them.

I mean fuck Lars but what if they do that to the next guy

You are also correct about the power principle. This is the same shit you saw in 1984 with children telling on their parents and shit. And not to dip too far into Godwins law but its been done to death https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hitler_Youth with these tikes here as a horrifying example, ratting out people to their deaths just for an attaboy and maybe some candy

We are all becoming big brother, and if you are at all like me its creating a chilling effect online. I don't say a fucking thing on social media anymore because at some point it can be taken out of context and used against you.

I wanted to ad to this a little bit.

The social media aspect of this is even worse. All the super obvious politicall shit you see on facebook or whatever, the memes that get shared like crazy, all of it is super manipulative. Like my goofy family from the south might share a prolife meme because it easily appeals to them, but in reality the page that put the meme up in the first place may not give any shit about that particular political message, they just want their obvious political bait meme to be shared as much as possible so they make easy ad revenue from it. Its carny as shit to me; and people on all sides eat it right the fuck up. When you like that political cartoon on facebook and share it on your wall all you really do is ratchet the societal tensions up just a little bit more while getting some asshole who may very well disagree with your political leaning a few extra cents on the dollar.
Stop being fucking played people.

you are engaging in revisionist history

A few months ago I brought up in a thread the fact that Lars Sullivan had been sharing neo nazi material online. the Moderator Mintz deleted this. I posted it again. Mintz then deleted it again and said "we don't care about Lars Sullivan's Racism". I went to /420chan/ and made a thread saying we should be allowed to talk about this and that it was relevant to wrestling. Mintz said no.

Fast forward to today and wow we are talking about it, just like I wanted to, and the board didn't explode, becaue we are all adults who can discuss things.

What you have to understand is that Mintz the mod was not just deleting off topic responses, he was deleting any mention at all of Lars Sullivan's racism, which is why still to this day many people on /wooo/ still don't understand what he did and think this is all one big smear campaign. It's pretty sad that it took a redddit campaign for this board to be allowed to talk about this.

It wasn't relevant at that time, it's literally been mentioned everywhere lately however. There were murmurs about it at best in the IWC until last Friday. I'm sure that the fact that you were spamming it probably contributed to Mintz deciding to delete your shit. If you're trying to get word out, not acting like a fucking autist usually helps.

And even if he goes to the training, is it a bunch of bullshit or what. All of this stuff isn't as good PR as WWE thinks it is.

I just read James Gunn's first interview commenting on his previous firing by Disney and he sounds very remorseful and understanding, and he's not even someone who needed to be cancelled in the way he was. So how does that compare to a card-carrying racist doing nothing but what he is dragged kicking and screaming into doing?

It's about damage control at best. Sullivan even released a public apology, and I'm willing to bet this will still be much easier to bounce back from than Enzo Amore and Rich Swann's incidents last year. If Hogan can come back from being hit as a racist, I'm sure this too will blow over.

If Gunn made some racist jokes instead would you still support him? If he didn't make your capeshit movie of the month would you care if he was thrown under the bus? As far as I can tell, Lars' made a joke about blacks can only copy, posted some official statistic, some anecdotal evidence that white women don't go black and liking a white pride song. He was not calling for any violence to anyone or any group, even jokingly. Gunn meanwhile made multiple tweets about raping underage kids.

It says a depressing amount about the CURRENT YEAR when child rape jokes are less harmful to ones career than some racist shitposts.

Ummm.

Because he represents a corporate billion dollar children's television program that's about to start on a brand new network, and he's had MANY chances to get ahead of the situation and offer ANY kind of statement, but instead chose to just mock the legitimate complaints of publicly spreading neo-Nazi material online that have come to light?

WWE had to step in, because Lars has had MONTHS to deal with the situation like an adult, and his sole reaction has been "I'm in the WWE now, so I'm untouchable".

Lars said shithead things, Lars dealt with the aftermath in a shithead way. Why are people defending someone who has not just made the wrong choices, but the explicitly dickhead choices every step of the way?

So things only become relevant to talk about on /wooo/ if other places are talking about them? Fuck that. We can talk about what we want here, and we shouldn't have to wait for circlejerk to validate a story so we can talk about it without a mod sperging out.


If you paid attention to the recent thread here, Spardot actually dealt with it in the way it should have been dealt with. She banned the obvious pol derailer and let other people talk about it. That's good modding, not banning all discussion.

It's hard to criticise the fine without sounding like you're defending white supremacy but basically take Lars out of the equation and you've got WWE being able to "take" money from a guy for something they already knew about and this is in no way a breach of contract? Something is broken here

Yeah, the US labor system, which allows these weird loopholes and distinctions between employees and "independent" contractors. The boys can do their part in fixing it by attempting to unionize, but they are disinterested for some reason.

Specifically in this case, Vince knows he has Lars by the balls since Lars is basically unhireable, so if Lars wants to wrestle, he has no choice but to do what Vince says. If you live in the US and you don't like this, vote for politicians who support labor rights.

As far as both sides of that argument go, I think more people just need to admit that SOME jokes with a theme of racism or child abuse can be funny.
Context and exaggeration of a joke is what matters, not the theme itself.

If it's a shitty joke that gets no laughs of course it's gonna come off in a much different, much more horrible context.
But for either side to imply that either theme is some realm forbidden of humor entirely is just wrong... if this outrage culture were really about anything true to justice and morality than people like Bob Saget and Anthony Jeselnik wouldn't have careers and fanbases, but it's really about their own narcissistic bullshit.

Every decent person can agree that ideologies and acts of bigotry are detestable.
I'd hope most intelligent ones can identify the difference between sincere thought/ideology and a failed attempt at being funny or edgy. (Not saying I know Lars' intentions myself but I also sort of sit on the fence when it's something I can label as evil ideology just as quickly as I can dismiss as obnoxious stupidity)
And in the latter would hope that realizing that denying a person the chance at forgiveness and redemption when they are in fact doing just that makes just as meaningless as if he had gotten away with it in the first place. One wrestler tweeted an acknowledgement of this sort and two people called him an Uncle Tom, and have the audacity to assume you're standing up TO racism.

Every joke has its audience. Comedians know this. Would Bob Saget tell racist jokes at an NAACP convention? No. That's not the right audience. Do new comics go blue right away? No. They have to earn it. The fact is, when you write something on the internet, the entire world is your audience and you haven't earned the right to go blue to them. You're right, there certainly is an allowance for jokes (or discourse) to be about racism, Lars posting on bb.com doesn't earn the allowance that Bob Saget performing in front of a 21+ club has.

Most of this goes unnoticed because generally people don't care what nobodies on the internet are saying (except for people who call themselves "anti-SJW"). Lars was unlucky in that he later became famous. But then again, because of this fame, he'll be able to afford the fine. I wonder if it's better to be a poor racist nobody, or a rich racist guy who was fined $100k. I think Lars will be able to get over it.

A few months ago some /pol/tard on was posting literal white nationalist propaganda on /b/. His thread got deleted so he went to /420/ to whine about it. If posting the nazi shit in the first place wasn't grounds for a ban, then complaining about not being allowed to do so definitely was. Mintsz was posting in the guy's thread on /420/ and I told him that he should ban the guy and he kept acting evasive and telling me "we're looking into it" and generally going out of his way to avoid doling out the ban on someone who actually deserved it for once. Jericho basically did the same thing there around that time too. Some /pol/tard (who wasn't even pretending not to be one) was backing him up in an argument we were having and he refused to ban him. I, of course, ended up getting banned by him for being critical of his modding.

This was during the whole latex guy thing on /b/ where people were getting banned every other day on /420/ just for criticising the mods and complaining about their selective moderation. So it wasn't like the mods just weren't banning anyone at all. They were picking and choosing who to ban for their own reasons. I'm not saying Mintzs and Jericho are necessarily nazis or anything, but they're most definitely hypocritical pieces of shit and there was definitely something shady going on there. Mintzs trying to shut down the Lars story doesn't surprise me in the slightest.

Keep in mind that the mods here, barring like 3 or 4 cool ones, are some of the most petty, childish and vindictive cunts on the entire site. If I had to take a wild guess why the likes of Mintzs did shit like this I'd say it just comes down to spite for the users and a feeling of being entitled to power trip and act like an asshole with impunity. And just a quick reminder in case anyone forgot: serial shitposter and noted lardass RMD was not only let off the hook for his toxic behaviour here for years, they literally made the fucker a mod for a stretch of time too.

Just because you have different opinions then people doesn't mean it's shit. The rest of 420chan has joke threads and life to it. /wooo/ can be really sterile compared to some boards on 420chan that have way less traffic which is sad. Even /nom/ knows how to take a joke.

Kirt was talking about some of the report he gets from /wooo/ and it sounds like people are calling for bans for literally anything here. Hell someone posted that Russo webm in the webm thread and a couple people jumped down his throat and said "WE DONT FIND THAT STUFF FUNNY HERE!". Like bitch.

They are the most vocal part on just about any website these days, not really surprising. Every single little thing is an intersectional struggle. They take every opportunity to LARP against whatever they can remotely define as "bigots" or "fascists".

Despite them claiming to fight for what's right you can be damn sure they wouldn't enlist if Hitler himself rose from the grave and started a fourth reich, because they are cowards who wouldn't do a goddamn thing that would put them in harm's way. Instead they blow up inconsequential stuff like this Lars thing, act offended on whomevers behalf they identify as "victims" of some previously completely unknown forum posts, and try to ruin his career by snitching to the big capital they otherwise claim to hate, safely from behind their iPhone screens. If they had any real balls or conviction they would seek him up and confront him in person, but that's too much trouble for these supposed knights of justice. They're the same kind of people that would declare the righteousness of a war while they sat back at home dodging drafts.

What I'm saying is that if what Lars did actually warrant such moral outrage it should also warrant physical confrontation. Not necessarily violence - but if you want to be a warrior of justice you should at least place yourself on the front line, otherwise you're just a coward. And in this case also a snitch. Going to the ad companies to "tell" on Lars is just akin to telling on your classmate to your teacher, which is frowned upon for a reason. They should fight their own battles.

And since they didn't confront him this way, they're either insincere with their convictions or cowards, or both.

That's probably because you don't have an ounce of courage and honor in your body. You might think this kind of cloak and dagger strategy is acceptable or perhaps even desirable. The reality is that nothing will be solved unless you have actual confrontation, and you will never actually get respect unless you place yourself in front of the one you call enemy.

I'm saying you should step up or shut up. If you look the one you think is a monster (because of some forum posts) in the eye you might realize that your moral outrage was fucking stupid in the first place, which it was in this case in my opinion. The only way the snitching cowards that targeted Lars can warrant it to themselves is if they have dehumanized their enemy, and a physical confrontation is the most efficient way to break that illusion. If you realize that the target of your misplaced malice is a another human being.

Yeah I agree. If people are mad about something like that they should just quit their jobs, follow around the WWE touring groups and stake out every hotel in the area. Then when they eventually find him they should say "Hey man those tweets kind of make you look like a dick" while security drags them away. Otherwise they're pretty much cowards

Who's made about WWE's Tribute to the Troops shows? They happen every year and no one seems to give a shit (or watch them for that matter).

The thing that's always seemed weird to me about those shows is how they time them right around Christmas, so it always includes Christmasy shit with pro-military stuff. It's tacitly tying Christianity in with the military (even though the military isn't 100% Christian). The whole issue could be averted if they just did the Tribute to the Troops shows around 4th of July or Veteran's Day or whatever.
