The NWA has released a statement regarding Jim Cornette and his recent controversial remarks on Twitter regarding suicide.
In 2019, Jim Cornette is often regarded as a source of controversy and recently on Twitter, he made some off-color remarks about suicide on Twitter, that picked up a heavy negative response:
As someone who has had suicide issues and lost friends to suicide, I to will be protesting in watching @nwa Powerrr due to Jim Cornette's comments. I loved watching the show, but unfortunately, I can't support a product anymore if they have someone who is acting unprofessional. https://t.co/6aqOWaHPGG— lightwarrior13 (@lightwarrior13) October 31, 2019
