WWE Responds to Allegations of Tea Party Bashing With Zeb Colter
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 02.19.2013



- WWE is denying that the Zeb Colter character is an attempt to bash the Tea Party. As previously reported, Alex Jones slammed the character and Fox News hosted a segment posing the same theory, noting that the Tea Party's slogan "Don't Tread on Me" was on Colter's podium last night on Raw (and apparently neglecting to remember that the slogan precedes the Tea Party by a couple centuries as a revolutionary and patriotic motto). WWE's Brian Flinn gave THR the following statement in regard to the news:

"WWE has a long history of creating fictional characters that serve as either protagonists or antagonists, no different than other television shows or feature films. To create compelling and relevant content for our audience, it is important to incorporate current events into our storylines. WWE is creating drama centered on a topical subject that has varying points of view to develop a rivalry between two characters. This storyline in no way represents WWE's political point of view. One should not confuse WWE's storytelling with what WWE stands for, similar to other entertainment companies such as Warner Bros., Universal Studios or Viacom."
