An online movement to get a top NXT Superstar fired by WWE launched and quickly picked up steam following Wednesday night’s episode of the weekly black-and-gold brand show on the USA Network.
Fans have created a petition in an attempt to get Velveteen Dream not only fired by WWE, but turned over to the proper authorities for his alleged inappropriate behavior with minors according to multiple accusations made against the pro wrestling star as part of the #SpeakingOut social media movement.
“Velveteen Dream, A.K.A Patrick Clark Jr. has been accused, and proven to be [groping] minors,” the online petition at Change.org reads. “WWE has done nothing about it,” the petition mission statement continues. “It is unfair that he [gets] off scott-free and even gets a push. We demand Justice!”
The petition statement concludes, “I will not release the names of the [alleged] victims due to legal reasons. We ask WWE to clearly and honestly investigate Mr.Clark and If they find evidence, turn him over to the proper authorities.”
The official web page for the petition labeled, “Fire and investigate Velveteen Dream,” released an update on Friday touting over 2,000+ signatures from people who support the movement against the WWE NXT performer.
The update on the Change.org web page for the petition features the headline, “2,000+ Signings!” and also acknowledges the “#FireVelveteenDream” Twitter and Instagram hash-tag, which has been trending in the United States and other regions throughout the day on Friday, August 21, 2020.
As of this writing, the “Fire and investigate Velveteen Dream” petition has 2,096 of its’ listed goal of 2,500 signatures. Check out the official petition web page at the following link: Petition – Fire and investigate Velveteen Dream (Change.org)
Earlier this week, the WWE EVP of Global Talent Strategy & Development, Paul “Triple H” Levesque addressed the Velveteen Dream situation during his NXT TakeOver: XXX pre-show media conference call to promote this Saturday’s milestone live special event on the WWE Network as part of WWE SummerSlam Weekend.
According to Triple H, the investigation led by WWE looking into the Velveteen Dream #SpeakingOut allegations found nothing. He also pointed out to those questioning Velveteen Dream’s recent return to NXT television that his sexual misconduct allegations had nothing to do with his NXT TV hiatus, and that he has actually missed several weeks of TV due to an automobile accident.
We will keep you posted here at eWrestling.com as any additional details or updates regarding the Velveteen Dream petition and emerging social media movement to get him fired by WWE surfaces.
