Another Update On WWE Lawsuit Over Alleged Racism

Another Update On WWE Lawsuit Over Alleged Racism CNBC

Another update has emerged on the lawsuit filed a few months ago by an ex-WWE writer over alleged racism and other issues in the company.

Back in April, it was revealed that Britney Abrahams had filed a suit alleging that she was “discriminated and retaliated against” as a black writer because she objected to “offensively racist and stereotypical jargon” in scripts for some wrestlers.

The defendants named in the suit were WWE, Chris Dunn, Ryan Callahan, Jennifer Pepperman, Christine Lubrano, Mike Heller, Vince McMahon and Stephanie McMahon.

Recently, Abrahams filed to dismiss the suit against all the individuals listed, but not WWE as a company, so WWE itself is currently the only defendant.

In the latest update (via PWInsider), WWE and Abrahams filed a joint motion to extend WWE’s due date for a response to November 3.

That was signed off and agreed by the court yesterday, August 28.

We’ll keep you posted with any more updates.
