Nikki, Brie Garcia react to Vince McMahon, John Laurinaitis lawsuit

by UNN Feed

Nikki and Brie Garcia have released a vague statement amid the sexual assault and trafficking claims against WWE founder Vince McMahon and the organization’s former head of talent relations, John Laurinaitis, who is their stepdad.

“We are shocked and disheartened with the recent allegations against members of the WWE,” the twins and retired wrestlers, 40, shared via a joint Instagram post Monday.

“It has been a lot to process since we found out this past week, just as you all did,” they continued. “This is something we don’t stand for or condone from anyone no matter who they are.”

They concluded, “We want all women to feel safe and supported in the workplace and in their everyday lives.”

Many commenters were quick to condemn the Garcias for not naming the accused — specifically, Laurinaitis.

“Nikki.. Brie… I can’t imagine how you’re feeling but to call them ‘members of the WWE’ like it’s not your literal stepfather… come on…” one critic remarked.

Someone else added, “This is weird af? Ain’t your step father implicated?? Why comment on this….. and with this hollow response especially considering you’re not even with the company anymore. Unless you have something substantial to say you could’ve kept this b.s statement.”

A third wrote, “This post feels purposely misleading to be honest. To say ‘members of the WWE’ distances yourselves from the fact that one of those ‘members’ is your stepfather. This feels like a ‘cover our asses’ post.”

However, a few had sympathy for Nikki and Brie’s mother, Kathy Laurinaitis, who married John — who wrestled under the name Johnny Ace — in March 2016.

“This is heartbreaking. To think your mom found a good man and then all this comes out, I would be devastated,” one supporter lamented.
