AEW star Eddie Kingston has slammed a former WCW star over a “fat shaming” tweet.
Eddie Kingston has made headlines after being suspended for two weeks after a backstage altercation with Sammy Guevara over a “fat shaming” promo to build towards an AEW All Out showdown.
Glenn Gilbertti, better known as Disco Inferno in WCW, has earned a reputation for having very polarizing opinions on the current wrestling landscape.
Speaking on the matter of wrestlers on the receiving end of fat shaming, Gilbertti wrote the following:
“Wrestlers and fans need to pull a full stop on this “fat shaming” bulls***. The wrestlers being fat shamed need to put the effort in to the gym and diet instead of playing victim. Do the f***ing work and stop embarrassing this industry.”
Following the tweet going viral, Kingston was quick to respond and shut down the snide comments from the former WCW star.
“You never did the work and the boys kept you around to laugh at you. I remember hearing the story where big show [Paul Wight] farted in your face. You ain’t a man.”
