Jaxson Ryker's Anti #BlackLivesMatter Post Resurfaces In The Wake Of Controversial Pro-Trump Tweet
Last night, Jaxson Ryker came under fire for a pro-Trump Tweet in the middle of the gassing of peaceful protesters, and the Forgotten Sons member has now received more backlash for an old Facebook post...
Just after Donald Trump's unconscionable order to assault and tear-gas peaceful protesters so he could walk to a church in order to get his photo taken holding a bible (upside down), SmackDown's Jaxson Ryker decided to send out a Tweet showing support for his POTUS.
Not too surprisingly, this led to a lot of backlash - including from some of his fellow WWE Superstars - and now a Facebook post from 2019 has resurfaced which makes his views on the #BlackLivesMatter movement abundantly clear.
In it, Ryker (real name Chad Lail) called the movement "garbage," and spouts more nonsense about watching 12 Years a Slave so black people can "realize how good you all actually have it" now.
"Pretty touchy subject but all this black lives matter garbage baffles me. I challenge anyone of any color or race to go watch 12 years a slave, the movie and realize how good you all actually have it. Learn heritage. Christ, Gandhi, Budda; they all taught love and caring for others. This is getting out of hand. I pray for this nation daily.”
Oh, and it turns out, Lail's half sister - who is black - also called him out on Twitter.

If nothing else, Ryker has certainly gained The Forgotten Sons some heat... but probably not in the way he was hoping.
