WWE Exec Fired After Wife is Outed as Woman Behind Anti-Muslim Twitter Account

amy mek wwe exec fired outed twitter troll

It turns out one of Twitter’s most controversial far-right accounts — a woman who regularly spews anti-Muslim propaganda — belongs to the wife of a former WWE executive, who was fired due to a report outing his significant other.

According to HuffPost, the @AmyMek account — which is followed by Sean Hannity, Roseanne, and some 220,000 others — belongs to Amy Jane Mekelburg. Mekelburg is married to the former WWE senior vice president responsible for global content distribution and business development.

To be fair, he became “former” after Huffpost’s Luke O’Brien started asking questions.

According to Huffpost, Salvatore Siino landed the WWE VP gig in early 2017 after his startup went out of business. In his position, WWE says Siino would’ve been negotiating TV deals in the United Arab Emirates. Virtually the entire population is Muslim.

WWE reportedly knew about the @AmyMek account, according to former family friend who talked with Huffpost, and told Siino to keep his connection to his wife quiet.

When HuffPost first questioned WWE about the account, a corporate spokesperson told them, “this is the first time we’re hearing about Amy Mekelburg.” As the story approached publication, Huffpost reached out to WWE a second time to see if anyone was aware of @AmyMek before Siino was hired.

“No,” said the WWE spokesperson . “Now that it has come to our attention, Sal Siino is no longer an employee.” Mekelburg has since blamed O’Brien for the firing — tweeting, “O’Brien went so far as to contact my husband’s employer and had him fired because of MY OPINIONS and my fight for Jews to exist.”

    What scumbags you are! Firing a person because of their spouse’s political views (or even their own political views) in the USA is skating on really thin ice. It also looks like anti-semitism was part of the company’s decision to fire this man. Your own words support the fact that Mr. O’Brien was largely the reason for for firing of Amy’s husband. I hope that WWE get sued and has a multi-million dollar judgment against them.

    • Van_Hammersly

      Hahahaha. Funny stuff man!

    • Will Henderson

      they fired him cause she caused a PR nightmare once HuffPo outed her as a wife of a WWE employee, and WWE is trying their best to kiss the Saudis asses. and if the Saudis knew about this, then WWE would lose that huge ass payday they got for the “Greatest Royal Rumble” event.

    • Slackboy101

      Maybe someone competent would take over afterwards

      • Hardlee_Ded

        …you really don’t seem to understand “…what’s best for business.”

        If your job is sales and marketing and your wife is spouting off about the people you are trying to sell to it can hurt the corporation you work for.

        Like it or not… this guy being fired was “…what’s best for business.”

    • gerrym94

      lies and prejudices =/= political views

    • The Legacy

      Are you stupid? Even if we completely remove the political angle from this, if you were negotiating a HUGE business deal with a muslim country, and your wife was spouting some of the most vile comments about them… wouldn’t that make you look bad? And wouldn’t it put the deal at risk?

      Simply put, the 1st Amendment is designed to protect you from the government. It does NOT protect you from the repercussions from the people that hear or read what you say. And those repercussions have told me to consider you a dolt, and to ignore anything you say.

    • Mavelous63

      Hey Howard, time to cleanup your Facebook Page:

      Howard Wachtel 4 years ago
      The real reason that you and Democrats in general oppose voter ID legislation is in order to continue the rampant voter fraud in the U.S., including people voting multiple times, foreigners and dead people voting, etc. This type of fraud increases the Democrats’ majority nationwide, and requiring some sort of identification is the only way to stop it, and I hope Republicans will make this a major issue.”

      No offense, but GFY along with your Orange Savior

      I thought conservatives were supposed to be in favor “at will” employment?

    • onewhogetsit

      Hey goober, did you read the article? Here, have an adult read this for you: According to Huffpost, Salvatore Siino landed the WWE VP gig in early 2017 after his startup went out of business. In his position, WWE says Siino would’ve been negotiating TV deals in the United Arab Emirates. Virtually the entire population is Muslim.

    • J. Gandarilla

      The husband was making multi-million dollar deals in Saudi Arabia, who in their right mind would let him continue after his wife was unmasked? EVEN for his own safety, I would’ve fired him.

  • SickandTired

    Good move WWE. How can he sell content to the UAE, a MUSLIM country, when his wife is an anti-muslim bigot. Not good for business. Maybe it’s time for her to get a job for a change.

  • Mike pHuckabee

    Guess what – women can be aholes too. And when you are a Trump supporting troll ahole and people find out – you lose job. This is about the 10th I’ve heard of this week.

    • des111168

      I didn’t know there were pu$$y wrestling fans, but, here you post.

      • Slackboy101

        I know right!? Why do libtards like wrestling? For the men they see what they want to be and for the women they see someone they want to marry besides their soyboy husband?

        • onewhogetsit

          stagger back to the trailer park there goober! Why do you believe anyone that isn’t a racist a$$hole must be a liberal? The KKK and the Nazis came out for your boy!

        • J. Gandarilla

          Yes, women love men who use the term “soyboy” in their anon profiles. You must be very popular.

        • HardenedDemocrat

          It’s painful for you to know that no self-respecting woman would do anymore for you than laugh in your sad little face.

      • Marty Funkhouser

        shes a crazy twitter racist. no wonder there werent any black champions lol

    • Slackboy101

      Yeah and people wonder why Trump got elected, I know! because jackoffs like you want to ruin peoples lives because they hurt someone’s feelings! Grow a spine soyboy!

      • Mike pHuckabee

        Good work comrade!

      • He’s an idiot

        You are a worthless POS

      • Snark Plissken

        It’s funny because you appear to be the variety of pussy that feels the need to hide in the safe space of a private posting history. You are clearly the type to avoid any personal responsibility, so to claim you are anything resembling conservative is laughable.

        No, you are nothing more than an average piece of white trash, with the intellectual capacity of a window licker.

      • onewhogetsit

        no you septic tank dweller! Do you know the difference between right and wrong? Apparently not! You don’t spew hatred and religious bigotry and expect no consequences! WE THE PEOPLE ARE SAYING NO! You be a racist, religious BIGOT, JACKOFF, LOSE YOUR JOB! Now, crawl back into your septic tank! tRump sure has emboldened you racist fools that don’t know the difference between right and wrong!

      • messi

        if they hate Muslims so bad, WHY WOULD THEY WANT A DEAL WITH THE UNITED ARAB EMIRATES?? FOCK TRUMP AND FOCK EVERY SINGLE ONE OF HIS SUPPORTERS

      • HardenedDemocrat

        She’s a fucking bigot , among other things but that’s a plus for trump-humpers, we get it, you balless wonder, you.

  • Louis

    Not fair. Don’t fire the guy for what his wife does on social media.

    • 1Spinning1

      You kind of have to fire him after this. Like be real, if your company was working a multi-million dollar deal with an Arab country, and this dude’s wife put that deal at risk, would you not let him go as well? That’s just smart business. The husband should have told his wife to cool it as soon as he got the job. They’re all idiots.

      • BanjoHank

        No you don’t have to fire him. His job is to make his good deals, any adult can see that. Who cares what his nutcase wife thinks? The HuffPo writer also mentioned what each of this woman’s immediate family did for a living in the piece and where they worked. It’s pure McCarthyism and it’s wrong. I’m a democrat by the way.

        • He’s an idiot

          But he can’t make good deals with Muslim dominant countriea if the people he is negotiating with know he’s married to a woman who hates Muslim people. Thus, he can’t do his job as effectively as someone else, so he has to be let go.

          • He’s an idiot

            And I’m also a democrat

          • BanjoHank

            Yes he can. If it’s a good deal, if the UAE can get the broadcasting rights to WWE at a good rate, they’re not going to ask what some pencil pusher’s looney wife thinks of their religion before they sign. They’re businesspeople. Just like us. The whole thing sucks. She’s unemployable. He’s not.

          • He’s an idiot

            Wrong. Id look into anyone I’m negotiating with before we began…sonid find it.and know.

          • Hardlee_Ded

            You really don’t understand how sales and marketing work or “…what’s best for business.”

        • Michael Crichton

          “Who cares what his nutcase wife thinks?”

          Potential business partners, or course.

    • Michael Crichton

      Might not be “fair”, but it’s legal. If you don’t think it should be, contact your congresscritters and demand they add social media activity to existing anti-discrimination laws. Good luck if they’re republicans, though.

      • Hardlee_Ded

        It isn’t discrimination, it’s “…what’s best for business.”

        …maybe his wife should have thought about how her actions could impact her husbands job.

        Very clearly she understands that it could make her a target or else she wouldn’t have been hiding behind a screen name and be freaking out over being outed.

    • J. Gandarilla

      When your wife is the biggest islamophobe on Twitter and your job is making deals with a Muslim country, there aren’t many places to go.

  • Wentra

    I am betting he will find an even better job.

    • Mavelous63

      …..you mean, an even better wife.

  • Slackboy101

    Really? They fired him for that!? Why is everyone defending Muslims they are the closest thing to Nazis out there, at least the extremists ones…

    • http://www.youtube.com/jobcorps411 Trey Flow

      “You know what’s even closer to Nazi’s? White people. But funny enough people still defend them when they shoot up another high school.” This is your logic I’m using btw.

      • Mavelous63

        Your facts will be wasted on him…

    • He’s an idiot

      You are a terrible person. Terrorists are the closest thing to Nazis not Muslims people. Grouping all Muslim people together as terrorists is shameful you price of trash….and btw I’m an American Jew.

      • Nicholas Stix

        Grouping all Nazis together as terrorists is shameful you price of trash….and btw I’m an American Jew.

        • He’s an idiot

          All Nazis are terrorists you jackass

    • Michael Crichton

      If you really think that, shouldn’t you be condemning the WWE for doing business with Saudi Arabia in the first place?

    • J. Gandarilla

      How many Muslims do you knpow? Have you know? Visited their homes? Read a book by a contemporary Muslim author? Sucked a fucking Muslim clit? AAANYTHING?!

    What Amy and those who think similar to her seem not to forget is that “freedom of speech” =/= freedom of platform. In this case, a HuffPost reporter did their job and got a story. All WWE did was change the headline from “wife of WWE VP” to “wife of former WWE employee”. They know how media works and used it to make sure they’re not brought down with Amy and her husband.

      Says the hate-filled, anonymous mischief maker.

      BTW, we’re not a democracy, and we never were one.

      • Michael Crichton

        The United States of America is a Federal Republic, AKA a Representative Democracy. Trying to be pedantic when you don’t actually know what the terminology means makes you look silly.

      • freedomisthejungle

        no we are not. which is why the left will crush you without remorse, roach.

        It’s commonly called a democracy and typically no one gets a corn cob up their ass when someone uses the common term. Unless that person has terrible self esteem and craves attention , that is.

  • Mavelous63

    ‘her fight for Jews…..’.
    Uh huh.

    Nice euphemism, Amy.
    When the WWE can’t stomach conspiracy theorists, You know you’re in trouble

  • Umberto Scali

    Professional Wrestling kept racism in check by allowing all of them regional territories to act out redneck fantasies (the south will rise again, Black supression, Native American suppression, Muslims as heels, glorifying the “working man” (aka white trash), GLOW). America doesnt have that any more so the rednecks are acting out their racism in real life.

    • The Jager Bomber

      Ummm, this “Redneck” is a NY Jewish lady. Your labels are in themselves bigoted.

      • Umberto Scali

        No kidding. You should watch some 80s wrestling.

    Guess she doesn’t just iron their sheets.

  • t_lhrh

    LOL. This is what happens when you spew out hate and you hope to remain anonymous. Now she can try to make a go of it as a out-and-proud racist and right-wing troll, like D’Souza, Cernovich, Shapiro, Coulter and their filthy ilk. Come on, lady, now you can really join your team and let your true freak racist flag fly! You can bring along your husband with you too if he needs gainful employment. Just be careful that he doesn’t end up catering to rich and powerful Muslim clients, like he did at the WWE. Otherwise it’s back to the unemployment line with him again…

  • White Black

    This woman is a complete lunatic. Read the article. Wow. She has never held a job and she’s dedicated her life to her prison boyfriend.

  • ModerateNationalist

    An infiltrator of the MAGA movement has been removed good riddance.

  • Johndoe

    I haven’t watched wrestling since I turned 14, but my brothers still watch it all the time. They are starting to get tired of the PC nonsense now and will drop WWE soon. Hey McMahon, F.U. libertard scumbag. Trump needs to fire your wife/mommy.

    • J. Gandarilla

      utterly unrelated to the matter at hand.
      And, maybe it’s PC now because they follow the market? We won the culture wars, get over it.

      • Johndoe

        ‘You’ won the culture wars, are you retarded? Conservatives are about ready to violently take back our country from baby murdering, child raping homosexuals like you.

        • J. Gandarilla

          Tell you what, when it happens, I’ll eat my words.
          Until then, have fun with the free market ALWAYS agreeing with the Liberal/Progressive ideas.

        • Hardlee_Ded

          …news flash, gun sales to liberals have skyrocketed because of people like you since Donald J Trump oozed into the White House.

          I won’t even bother to point out how your comment actually demonstrates how correct the WWE was to fire her husband.

          • Johndoe

            Yep, you’re a fake conservative. We don’t want you neverTrump rinos, go away.

    • Hardlee_Ded

      Vince McMahon and his wife… and children… and many pro-wrestlers are not only Republican’s… they are ultra-right-wing conservatives.

      But they aren’t stupid and they know “…what’s best for business.”
      Vince is trying to expand into new markets and have to be very aware of how not only their employees actions can hurt their business… but how their spouses can impact their business.

      Most real conservatives would understand this fact.

      • Johndoe

        Vince sold out the American people for a few extra dollars in the ‘lucrative’ muslim wrestling world…Is there even such a thing? Seriously. Get real.

        Real Conservatives put their values before the ‘almighty’ dollar.

        • Hardlee_Ded

          …for someone who hasn’t “… watched wrestling since I turned 14” you sure demonstrate how little you know about the current problems the WWE is facing regarding both market growth and where they are currently attempting to grow their market… and it isn’t the USA, where their market has been shrinking.

          …the current push is in Europe and Middle East… and yes there is a very lucrative market in the Muslim world.

          …a resent event in Saudi Arabia sold out and the WWE even left all the female Wrestlers home… and in India the women who did go wore full body ‘cat suits’ so as not to offend local standards (even though India’s not a Muslim nation.)

          Oh… and the Iron Sheik… I know him, he was an Iranian Olympic star under the Shah and rose to prominence as a heel in the USA after the Iranian’s overthrew the Shah and took the US Embassy staff hostage for over a year… and he along with the Shah found themselves living in exile… so things were much different back then… and the WWE (WWF back then)… was operating differently and the Iron Sheik didn’t get his character pushed for the Muslim angle but for his Iranian nationality.

          The anti-Muslim position of the American people really didn’t take root until after September 11th, 2001.

  • Pete

    I find it incredibly concerning that someone can be fired for their spouse’s political views.

    Shame.

      Contact your Senator and Representative and demand that that be added to existing anti-discrimination laws. Then hold your breath until there’s no longer a republican majority.

  • J. Gandarilla

    Are you really not going to mention that Amy has made her husband a cuck for a decade? The Paul Cortez aspect is my favorite part.

  • freedomisthejungle

    what a nutcase. She is a conspiratorialist supporter of the Zionist colonialism which is murdering thousands of Palestinian Arabs (many of whom are Christian!!). she peddles conspiracies and there is no place for her.

  • Robin Eublind

    Amy outed herself back in 2014 in State College media when her cousin went missing.
    Running a one woman hate group for years is hard work and has consequences.
    It’s nobody fault but theirs that the WWE didn’t think her husband was a good choice to market WWE programming to Muslim nations.
