WWE Moves to Pull “Edgier” Clips From Digital Platforms

by Categorized: Media, Politics, Technology Date:

World Wrestling Entertainment has announced an effort to scrub “dated and edgier” footage from various digital platforms, including YouTube, saying the use of the racy clips damages its current reputation as a provider of PG- and G-rated entertainment.

In a brief announcement sent late Thursday, company spokesman Brian Flinn said older WWE footage has been “misused in political environments without any context or explanation as to when it was produced.”

Senate candidate Linda McMahon is WWE’s former CEO, and the company has been a popular target for opponents, who have distributed clips showing women in degrading positions during WWE shows.

The brief statement did not indicate how WWE planned to proceed, or which digital platforms in particular the company was referring to. But Flinn later clarified by email that YouTube is a focus of the effort. The company has in the past sought to remove certain clips from YouTube, but as of late Thursday, other clips showing women in compromising positions could still be found.
