Gail Kim Clarifies WWE Racism Allegations, ‘It Comes From the Top’

gail kim wwe racism allegations mcmahon comes from the top management leadership

Impact Wrestling producer Gail Kim released a statement on Tuesday clarifying recent allegations she made on social media in which she called the McMahon family racist.

In case you missed it, the ex-WWE star replied to someone on Twitter over the weekend who was talking about the McMahons giving a pass to Hulk Hogan and said: “Plus they’re racist anyway. They don’t care if anyone is racist Bc they have the same thoughts.”

To clarify what she meant, Gail tweeted a much more in-depth statement and explained how she wasn’t talking about everyone who works for the company. She claims “it comes from the top.”

“After speaking with a couple of friends recently regarding my comments on social media on racism, I had my eyes opened to the fact that my words chosen to deliver my message could have been managed more thoughtfully,” Kim explained.

“The one word of my statement that I regret using is the term ‘they,'” she continued.

“I think due to the fact that sometimes terms like racism are thrown around easily, especially in today’s climate. Racism is a serious thing and I realized that saying “they”, that I was putting a blanket over everyone who works in the company. This is not true. The culture or environment of a company starts from the top. The leadership. The leadership of a company sends a message to its employees of what is tolerated and what is not.”

Gail finished the statement writing, “As an ethnic female in wrestling, there will be people reading my words and I want to set an example. I did experience racism. I never even understood the term “gook” until I worked for the company or heard the usage of so many ugly racial slurs. I think it’s important to educate, listen and talk about these issues. I want to be very clear on where I stand. I want racial and gender equality. I hope that we can make strides to talk about and create change for the good of our industry and others.”

Pro Wrestling Sheet reached out to Gail Kim for further clarification on the racial slurs she’s referencing, but were told said she won’t currently be commenting on the matter further.

      But she did have experience in WWE. She hated her last run in WWE that she eliminated herself in a battle royale on live tv when it immediately started.

  • Louis

    I love Gail Kim. I love Gail Kim. My perfect Asian woman. But I even I have to say she is coming off as being extremely bitter. And to play the race card last week was grasping. Good that she clarified this a bit but it’s time for her to move on.

    • Autumn West

      How is saying she exprienced racism “playing the race card” it was the hand that was given. Y’all will make any attempt to excuse this. Disgusting

      • Louis

        She is playing the race card you idiot. She herself apologized for even bringing up race and accusing Stephanie and WWE with racism. She sent a lengthy statement apologizing for making racist accusations. She regretted it.

        Y’all or YOU need to get a clue you knucklehead.

        • Autumn West

          YOU are the one full of shit. Idgaf if she apologized before for Wwe. Her account isn’t the only account of their racism. If you fall for that shit you are extremely gullible. Your comment reeks of excuses. Save yourself the trouble of responding. It does you no favors. Also I never attacked you personally, so whatever you comment next robs of your credibility. Degenerate.

          • Louis

            Kiss my ass you social jackass warrior.

            Don’t play that bullshit on me. I am Hispanic and I call out people who use race as an excuse for failing at something. Instead of blaming herself for why she failed at the WWE, TWICE. She played the damn race card and I called her out on it.

            You don’t like it? Tough.

            Kiss my hairy ass.

    I love Gail Kim. Sexy as heck. But she does come off as being bitter and tp bring race into this was not a good idea. Thankfully she apologized.
