Tiffany Stratton has recently found herself in the deep water after accidentally uploading a controversial video on Instagram that contains some serious elements of racism. In a recent match with Jade Cargill, the former NXT star hit her opponent with a forearm and knocked her off the ring apron. Shortly after, the 25-year-old committed a blunder by letting it loose on her social media handle. A video containing a ‘Black bi**h’ comment immediately infuriated the netizens and invited unbridled backlash her way, leaving her future in the upcoming Saudi Arabian PLE in severe jeopardy. But, the good part is you can put your worries of WWE turning on her to rest as of now.

Fightful Agent revealed WWE’s approach regarding the Blonde Bombshell in a recent media analysis and it’s utterly comforting for all the Stratton fans.

Getting the upper hand over Michin in the first round at a live event over the weekend, she is eying the Queen of the Ring semifinals with a win over Belair tonight. Her pursuit seems totally immune from any type of punishment from the company higher-ups for the deleted racist Instagram story.

The fan-made video of the disputable post included an audio sampling of a woman saying the words “Black b****” as Stratton’s forearm connects with Cargill and the recent report says WWE doesn’t think it to be a very big deal.

”I can tell you that the people that I spoke to in WWE, their theory, and I just want to say their theory was that she probably shared it without hearing the video on it and just seeing it and being like I remember what happened there, I was a part of it and then off course deleted it, I haven’t heard of any extended heat or anything or any issues backstage or anything like that.” the verbal Fightful report noted.

However, regardless of the current backlash she’s facing, Stratton seems content with the amount of love she already garnered in her career so far.

Tiffany Stratton only focuses on the good part about her fanfare

Since the very start of the ongoing year, Stratton has been on a roll. Be it receiving a startling reception in Perth, Australia, at Elimination Chamber or giving a stellar performance during her WWE Women’s Championship match at Backlash France, the former NXT Women’s Champion showed her mettle at every chance and got her prize in the form of unbridled love from fans. Amidst the turbulent situation, Straton looked back at the surreal experience she had back in Perth and felt immensely grateful.

During a recent Fightful interview, ‘The Buff Barbie’ noted that she didn’t expect such overwhelming love in the United States as she had never been on the main roster before. The love reassured her to the core despite the result not going in her favor.
