Like many companies over the past week, ROH commented on the murder of George Floyd and the ongoing protests across the United States.
Ring of Honor posted a statement on Friday, which you can read below.
ROH stands with the peaceful protests occurring around the country that are forcing important conversation and action to address racism in this country.
ROH supports a diverse, inclusive community that treats all people with the respect and dignity that they deserve, and we will use our platform to expose instances of racism and prejudice in all forms.
We also extend our sincere condolences to the Floyd family and hope that as a country we can come together and ensure incidents like this never happen again.
WWE and IMPACT previously posted statements that went against racism following the murder of George Floyd as well.
Independent wrestler Faye Jackson commented on ROH's statement, calling out the company for past issues when it comes to diversity.
I remember the days of “Women of Honor” having locker room meetings but I was never invited.— Tasha from Bone Thugs (@fayejackson419) June 6, 2020
The one time I invited myself I was met with stares and eye rolls.
Inclusive right? https://t.co/KNigSrqmPl
I’m sure I’m gonna be more blackballed after that statement but it had to be said. PTSD is real.— Tasha from Bone Thugs (@fayejackson419) June 6, 2020
And to this day if anyone ask me about ROH I tell them to go. I never want anyone thk I have so much hate that I deter anyone from their dream. All I say is use it as an opportunity but protect yourself. Something I should have done https://t.co/HtAxN89djP— Tasha from Bone Thugs (@fayejackson419) June 6, 2020
And this is only a small thing of many things I went through— Tasha from Bone Thugs (@fayejackson419) June 6, 2020
But this ain’t the platform. Im already exhausted from it and no I don’t want to go on your podcast to talk about it. I’ve BEEN tired https://t.co/gL0FPjkC3z
I gotta thank WOH tho. If it wasn’t for them I would have never created this twitter account I was forced to make.— Tasha from Bone Thugs (@fayejackson419) June 6, 2020
Anyways new topic.... who has gotten laid during the quarantine?
Show of hands --------------------
Faye didn't give a timeframe on when the locker room meetings happened. She wrestled for ROH in 2016 and 2017, competing at an event titled ROH Women Of Honor in August 2016. ROH calls their entire women's division the Women of Honor.
ROH has not publicly commented on Faye's claims.
