WWE announced today in a statement to multiple media sources that Dylan Miley, who portrays Lars Sullivan on WWE television, has been fined $100,000 and need to complete sensitivity training for his past homophobic, racist, and offensive comments.
As reported here late last week, offensive comments made by Miley on Bodybuilding.com began to surface when he was announced as joining the main roster back in December 2018. Those comments then became widely circulated last week on a Reddit thread.
The story was also picked up and circulated by a number of LGBTQ media outlets, prompting an apology from Miley made through a WWE statement.
Here is the WWE statement in its entirety:
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.
