Cody Rhodes took to social media this weekend to address the reason his wife, AEW Chief Brand Officer Brandi Rhodes, recently deleted her Twitter account.
While most seemed to think she deactivated her account and left the world of Twitter because of backlash she received from controversy surrounding the launch of the new “AEW Heels” brand.
Apparently that has absolutely nothing to do with it.
Unfortunately, the real reason is much worse, as explained by the reigning TNT Champion in a post that he originally made via Twitter, but has since deleted.
The tweet featured the AEW EVP responding to fans who claimed Brandi deleting her Twitter account was an “unacceptable” move on her part due to her executive position within the company.
“Leaving a social app because you open your phone to an absurd amount of ‘N-Bombs’ is respectfully understandable,” Cody wrote, revealing that the real reason was an apparent overwhelming amount of racist messages spamming the Twitter feed of the AEW CBO.
“[There is] no place for that,” Cody’s now deleted tweet concluded.
For those interested in interacting with AEW CBO Brandi Rhodes, she is still available via the Instagram social media platform. Follow Brandi Rhodes’ official Instagram page @TheBrandiRhodes.
