Mustafa Ali shocked the WWE Universe by revealing himself to be the leader of the heel faction of RETRIBUTION last week on RAW. He was supposed to speak on this week's RAW but the plans were nixed.
The reveal that Ali is a part of RETRIBUTION received a lot of positive reviews from the WWE Universe. However, it seems that a few people amongst the fans were not particularly happy with it. One such decided to target Ali with racial comments on social media.
A Twitter user made a post where he called Mustafa Ali a 'terrorist' and compared him to former WWE Superstar Muhammad Hassan who portrayed an extremist character on television and feuded with The Undertaker. The user also said that RETRIBUTION would get disbanded quickly.
Ali saw the tweet and the insensitive comments that the user made and responded with a simple statement.
"There it is."
Mustafa Ali's history of dealing with racism
This is not the first time that Mustafa Ali has been subjected to racist comments on social media. Ali lashed out at an offensive and racist meme made on him by a Reddit User a few months ago.
Ali, whose real name is Adeel Alam, is the son of a Pakistani father and an Indian mother. He was born and raised in Bolingbrook, Illinois, and worked as a Police officer in the Chicago area prior to pursuing his dreams to be a WWE Superstar.
Despite talking about bringing peace and harmony among all communities, Ali continues to find himself being subjected to hate comments. One can only hope that this will end sometime soon.
Ali, along with RETRIBUTION, was recently drafted to RAW as part of the 2020 WWE Draft. Judging by how things have transpired on the Red brand in the past few weeks, it seems that Ali and RETRIBUTION could be embroiled in a lengthy feud with The Hurt Business.Published 15 Oct 2020, 10:24 IST
