Karl Anderson’s anti-WWE comment on Twitter sparks fury

American professional wrestler Chad Allegra, who is better known for his ring name ‘The Machine Gun’ Karl Anderson, is trending on Twitter for all the wrong reasons following his reaction to a post by WWE about mental health.

Several social media users are urging one another to spread more awareness about issues concerning mental health after the tragic death of former wrestler, Daffney Unger. Only yesterday, she went live on Instagram to talk about suicide while holding a gun to her own head. 

At the time of the writing, the actual cause of Daffney’s death hasn’t been released. Twitter users, however, have reacted to Karl offering his opinion about the situation, and they’re not happy. 

What did Karl Anderson say on Twitter?

After Daffney’s death was announced, WWE shared a post on Twitter, offering help to their talents who are struggling with mental health. 

The tweet read: “As a reminder to our Talent, if you are dealing with a difficult personal matter and would like to speak with someone to get the support you need, please don’t hesitate to contact  [Counseling Company Name Withheld] at [NUMBER DELETED] or WWE Medical.”

Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful.com reshared the tweet to which Karl responded saying, “They suck bro.” The tweet was soon deleted, but users on the platform were quick to catch up on it. 

His comment didn’t sit well with fans as many called him out for using another wrestler’s demise as a reason to lash out at WWE.

Karl, who is now signed with IMPACT Wrestling, had previously admitted to being unhappy at WWE.

Wrestler receives backlash for his Tweet 

Karl tried to steer clear of the drama by re-sharing another tweet about seeking help for issues related to mental health and telling his followers “I love you all…”. 

But, Twitter users didn’t think twice before calling him out for his deleted tweet. A significant number of them have had a go at him for being insensitive about someone’s death. 

One wrote, “All Karl Anderson had to do was tweet kind words in memory of Daffney, then stfu. Instead he decided to use her suicide as a jumping off point to slam WWE then go on a tangent calling anyone who criticized names.”

Another added, “To the people that are defending Karl Anderson’s AEW vs WWE tribalism nonsense on a day like this….. There’s a special place in hell for people like you. Karma will get you one day. I promise you it will get you one day.”

One fan wrote, “I’m annoyed by what Karl Anderson said, I don’t care if he’s joking around or tweeting in kayfabe trolling trying to draw fan heat, mental health in wrestling is no laughing matter…”

Meanwhile, people across the world are sending their prayers to Daffney on hearing about her tragic death.

The former wrestler went live on Instagram a day before her death, where she was seen crying while talking about wanting to donate her car and hinting at taking her own life as she held a gun to her hand.

As more and more people started expressing their concerns about Daffney’s condition, emergency services were sent to her residence.

While people awaited an update on her condition, she was declared dead on September 2. The cause, however, is still unclear.
