Public relations executive Justine Sacco was fired for her incredibly insensitive tweet about Africa and AIDS, and rightfully so, but more and more news is coming out about her now. People have now started looking into her background, and on Dec. 21, 2013, the Inquisitr reports that she used to work for Vince McMahon ain the fighting environment of the WWE.
Sacco started a viral war when she posted this tweet before heading from London to Africa:
"Going to Africa. Hope I don't get AIDS. Just kidding. I'm white!"
Sacco was the director of communications at Diller's IAC, whose holdings include television production company Electus, dating sites OKCupid and Match.com, and the video site Vimeo. She has relieved of her duties after posting the "outrageous, offensive" tweet, according to IAC.
Now, it has been revealed that she used to work as a publicist for Vince McMahon's WWE, and some are saying this is the reason they shouldn't be surprised by her vulgarity.
As a matter of fact, the WWE has toned down its product in recent years and works toward generating a "family-friendly" product. That type of material is much different from the "Attitude Era" that existed back in the nineties.
Yes, there are still some extremes in WWE, but Justine Sacco's actions can't be blamed on that of Vince McMahon.
