According to FoxNews.com, Democrats have fired back at both WWE and Linda McMahon for removing Attitude Era online content, and attempting to "erase Linda's past."
The comments stem from a risque Attitude Era video, which was posted online by the Connecticut Democratic Party earlier this week, showing clips of the Triple H/Kane/Katie Vick story line, and the Edge and Lita live sex celebration. The footage was immediately taken down by WWE, with the reason given that it violated the company's PG nature.
According to the FoxNews report, however, WWE also maintains the posting of the racy content was removed in part to stop it from being poached for political purposes.
"Some of this footage has been misused in political environments without any context or explanation as to when it was produced," the company said. "This damages the corporate reputation of our company. WWE is well within its rights to protect its intellectual property for fair use."
Nancy DiNardo, Chairwoman of the Connecticut Democratic Party, fired back at WWE's removal of the racy video by saying, "Linda McMahon made millions peddling sex, violence, necrophilia and abusive treatment of women to kids – all at the expense and safety of her own workers," said Nancy DiNardo, chairwoman of the Connecticut Democratic Party said Monday, upon re-releasing a highlight video. "Despite (World Wrestling Entertainment’s) best efforts to play cover-up, they can’t erase Linda McMahon’s past."
