WWE wrestler Lars Sullivan (real name Dylan Miley), who has been getting a big push on the main roster in recent weeks, has apologized for making several sexist, racist, homophobic, and numerous other offensive posts on a bodybuilding message board from 2007-2013.
A Reddit user unearthed and re-published Sullivan’s posts last year around the time his debut on the main roster was being teased. Last week, additional posts were discovered and posted on Reddit. You can see several of Sullivan’s posts HERE.
Sullivan posted under the username Disenfranchised and later he posted as ElPerfecto. Both profiles include pictures of Sullivan when he was younger. When the posts first surfaced on Reddit, WWE colleague Big E was asked about the posts on Twitter and he responded with the following tweet:
Many are aware. If true, he has to bear the albatross of being a bigot & working in a company that is now filled with minorities.

Kalisto also addressed Sullivan’s comments on Twitter. He wrote, “He just needs to get out of my way….I’m Latino….” Kalisto’s tweet has since been removed from his profile.
WWE issued a statement attributed to Sullivan: “There is no excuse for the inappropriate remarks that I made years ago. They do not reflect my personal beliefs nor who I am today, and I apologize to anyone I offended.”
