Kayla Braxton returned to WWE television last Friday on SmackDown following a second positive test for COVID-19. Braxton previously revealed she was the reported positive test in March before later confirming she had tested positive again in June.
In her message where she confirmed her second positive test, Braxton wrote, "I had it back in early March and then thought I was invincible after I recovered. Not true. Dont be dumb like me."
She was attacked online for the line with people believing Kayla didn't take proper precautions and that's why she tested positive again.
Taking to Twitter, Kayla addressed her second positive and called for online bullying to stop. She wrote she still wore a mask and took all the precautions, but still tested positive again, though she didn't experience any symptoms. She left work and self-quarantined for 14 days after the second positive. Upon returning to WWE TV, she was sent insensitive messages regarding her health. When she initially wrote, "don't be stupid like me," she was saying, "don't think you can't test positive twice."
Kayla asked for people to be better and to stop bullying people online.
