NXT Wrestler Jessi Kamea shared photos this afternoon of herself wearing a t-shirt that said, “End Racism Make Mixed Babies” on Twitter.

According to her, she had to take down the post, due to the backlash she received.

Kamea released a statement about it, writing how she was shocked at the responses to the tweet. Her intention was to help support a friend and support the message of ending racism.

The shirt is available at byjack.com. 

Her full statement was the following:

Hey everyone! I just wanted to apologize about the t-shirt post I recently took down. I didn’t realize it would offend so many people in such a negative way. My intention with the post was to support a friend and also support the message of Ending Racism. I’m a mixed baby, and I’m very proud of all my heritages so the shirt looked cool to me. I’m shocked and enlightened by all of your responses, thank you. I hope y’all have a nice day.

Jessi Kamea made her NXT debut at a live event in October 2017. She participated in the 2018 Mae Young Classic and was also part of the 2019 Worlds Collide event.
