The World Wrestling Entertainment apologized today for using an image of concentration camp Auschwitz in a video hyping a match!
THEY REALLY DID… And they really used it!
The WWE video used the camp image with audio of wrestler Dominik Mysterio pretending to be a criminal incarcerated in the facility.
“We had no knowledge of what was depicted,” said a WWE statement issued Friday. “As soon as we learned, it was removed immediately. We apologize for this error.”
The images do not appear in YouTube replays. The image showed barbed wire fences and guard towers at the concentration camp.
The WWE recently announced its acquisition by the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) parent Endeavor. The merger of the entities would create one of the world’s largest sports and entertainment companies, with a combined valuation of $21 billion.
