WWE Fired Senior VP After Investigation into His Wife's Anti-Islamic Twitter Account

November 24, 2020 0 By HearthstoneYarns

— The Huffington Post has a story on Twitter user @AmyMek, “who has more than 200,000 followers, including Sean Hannity, Roseanne Barr and the personal account of Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and has earned endorsements from Donald Trump and Michael Flynn ― has tirelessly spewed far-right propaganda and, above all, Islamophobia. Around 25 tweets a day, sometimes more, the majority of them designed to stoke hatred of Muslims.”

— After their investigation, they dug up some info on the user, who is 45-year old Amy Jane Mekelburg from Fishkill, New York who is married to now former WWE executive Salvatore “Sal” Siino who worked for the company as senior vice president responsible for global content distribution and business development. Amid reports that WWE knew about the connection between their employee and Meckelburg, the company responded with: “This is the first time we’re hearing about Amy Mekelburg.”

— The Huffington Post adds “The company had reason to worry about Mekelburg’s Islamophobia. In the early part of 2018, the WWE and Saudi Arabia finalized a controversial 10-year deal to bring pro wrestling there. Siino was negotiating TV deals in the United Arab Emirates, according to the WWE. Back in Fishkill, his wife was casting Muslims as subhuman filth.”

— Mekelburg continued to tweet hate despite knowing that her husband’s job was in jeopardy, especially since he was involved in the Saudi Arabia negotiations. When approached a second time earlier this year, WWE responded with: “Now that it has come to our attention, Sal Siino is no longer an employee.”
