WWE Superstar Darren Young has taken to Twitter to express his disappointment with the WWE’s tour in Abu Dhabi. Young is an openly gay athlete, and the tour in Abu Dhabi is upsetting to him because homosexuality is a crime in Abu Dhabi. Darren expressed his disappointment on Twitter by saying, Why do we bring the best entertainment into a country like Abu Dhabi and they look down upon women and gays? I get it #MillionsofDollars.
