WWE removes “dated, edgier footage” from YouTube

Rep-am.com is reporting that WWE has made the decision to remove “some dated and edgier footage” from YouTube due to political opponents of Linda McMahon taking advantage of the footage to use against her in what WWE called as being “misused in political environments without any context.”

WWE’s official statement reads:

“To better reflect our current family-friendly brand of entertainment, WWE is removing some dated and edgier footage from digital platforms. Some of this footage has been misused in political environments without any context or explanation as to when it was produced. This damages the corporate reputation of our company. WWE is well within its rights to protect its intellectual property for fair use.”
