Someone on twitter tried to justify it by using the fact Mauro uses the phrase "he's got smiles for myles" whenever he's in the ring. 

This is Mauro who's become unavoidably shit since returning to WWE and probably has at least one of those two in his ear every taping. 

The entire company is clueless.

It's always an interesting situation with something like this. I wouldn't look at it and automatically associate it with what has been mentioned but obviously we all have different perspectives. Perhaps that's the problem in WWE marketing. They might not have enough of a wide representation internally to identify potential issues like that.

I hope he actually talked to Triple H and McMahon before he did all this. They're his bosses and should not be hard to reach.

Then he could've been let go for being difficult to work with. This way, he's probably given himself at least a couple of years of job security, and fodder for podcasts and indie promos after.

Yeah best thing he could have done.
WWE CAN'T release him or be seen to be punishing him over this. Don't get me wrong - they will eventually, because they are incredibly petty and that's what they do but, as PITCOS said, he has done the best thing for his immediate future.

If he didnt go public, I imagine Vince and Triple H would have been standing over him shouting "wear the damn mistrel shirt!" until he agreed to it. He has every right to be pissed off, like. That looks like those bootleg t-shirts you'd get at Blackpool on a market stall in the 90s.

"Arnold Rimmer Says Go Home To Your Own Country!" etc.

So their statement was that it was a month ago and he signed off on the design (probably gave it as much thought as the junior graphic designer who had to shit out 30+ new logos for the NXT launch in probably a very short timeframe), then either he realised or someone else points out to him the blackface connotations so he asks for it to be changed and it was before any shirts were sold. Then, a month later he goes on a twitter tirade about it and stirs up the microcosm that is the twitter hate machine. It's either something about nothing or it's a work, the latter being especially likely for calling out Vince and HHH who won't have seen that logo for even a microsecond let alone sanctioned or suggested the design.

the t shirt is wrong on so many levels

it's not, it's wrong on 1 very specific level and something that clearly several people saw before anyone made the connection. If you can say that you would have realised had it not been pointed out you then I'll call you a liar, I know I definitely would not have noticed the black face similarity.

Some people would have. Some people wouldn't. All depends on your own angle and experience and knowledge and general way of thinking. We're all individuals informed in different ways.

As I said on the previous page, I genuinely wouldn't have seen anything wrong with it at all, but I can see why some picked up on it.
