Jordan Myles posts statement on recent Twitter comments.
It's been a whirlwind couple of days for Jordan Myles, beginning on Sunday when he called out WWE for releasing a shirt with racist connotations in September. WWE claimed Myles had approved the design in a statement released on Sunday night. Myles responded to the statement on Monday, saying he felt his hands were tied after being told Triple H liked the design. After responding to the statement, Myles then blasted WWE, saying the system is a fraud and stating WWE doesn't care about black people. He also took aim at ROH and Jay Lethal.

On Tuesday, Myles posted a lengthy message on Instagram, further explaining his position and addressing his tweets from Monday.
My tweets yesterday were completely disrespectful and were unprofessional. I have offend a ton of people and used anger to fuel me. With that being said.. I’d like to take this time to state an apologize for not giving a shit about what others think of me. The anger I have inside of me has been built up for years now. Call me what you want, but you’ll never EVER be able to call me fake. I’ve been lied too, used, and often mistreated by others who I viewed as associates. I’ve tipped toe around, kept quiet, even took some Ls when necessary. Emotionally charged up due to the shirt which triggered past emotions. I’m never going to be sorry for being me nor will I take back my words. I’m the damn professional wrestler in the WORLD & universe today. My ribs are touching and I’m tired of waiting. Time to snatch plates from those that have been eating far too long and always gets seconds while guys like myself have to eat crumbs from the floor like an unwanted child. For 4 years .. I gave my all to a promotion only to find out that you could only reach so high just as long as you didn’t surpass certain “people”.. I never begged for anything, I never kissed no ass, nor did rub elbows with the right ppl to get ahead. I HUSTTLED, WORKED HARD. I didn’t call Hunter everyday to get booked in New Japan (s/o to NJPW) I earned it. I’ve always wanted to be “The Guy” and of no one will allow me to be in that spot.. I shall blaze my own trail to that spot rather it be by the approval of others or not. Today i shall continue to go the distance. Today I shall Lee moving forward. Today I shall rise up from my past ashes like a Dark Phoenix and promote change in this industry. Remember these words I AM THE BEST IN THE WORLD! AND NO MAN OR WOMAN WILL STOP ME FROM BEING HONEST. GO THE DISTANCE... #MylesAhead #ForTheCulture
WWE has not given further comment on the situation. Myles has reportedly not been at the WWE Performance Center in recent weeks, though it is unknown if his absence has to do with the t-shirt controversy.
