"Be A Star Alliance," an anti-bullying organization, is being called out for its relationship with the WWE.
Lisa Wright, program director of the Council for Unity, a national non-profit group, fired off an angry letter to the group concerning WWE storylines that had "fat jokes" being directed at Vickie Guerrero on TV. Wright wonders how an anti-bullying organization that supports tolerance and respect can partner with a professional wrestling operation that regularly features name calling and threats that turn into violence.
Guerrero is the widow of the late professional wrestler Eddie Guerrero. Her billed height is 5-6, with her weight listed at 185 lbs.
Lords of Pain wrestling blog reports Jerry Lawler made several jokes about Guerrero's weight on RAW just days after the WWE and The Creative Coalition teamed up for a party centered around the "Be A Star" initiative last Thursday in LA.
Wright ended her angry letter with a final shot at the WWE and the "Be A Star Alliance."
"The WWE may, in principal, be against bullying and the violence that so often accompanies it, however, the very nature of the business is not conducive to a culture of inclusion and peace that we here at the Council for Unity seek to create. To that end, we respectfully request the removal or our organization from your web site."
