WWE Issues Statement on LaVar Ball’s Son Using Racial Slur on WWE Raw

As seen on WWE Raw last night, Big Baller Brand’s LaVar Ball and his sons LaMelo and Lonzo appeared on the show in a Miz TV segment which you can watch below.

Amongst other things, the segment featured LaVar Ball taking off his shirt, and while that has been generating some mainstream attention, what has been getting more attention was LaVar’s son LaMelo using a racial slur during his interaction with Dean Ambrose. When Ambrose interrupted the segment, which you can check out below, LaMelo used the n-word, which judging by the reaction of his brother Lonzo, was not something that was previously scripted.

WWE has since issued the following statement to the Los Angeles Times on LaMelo’s use of the word:

“The inappropriate language used by a guest during the ‘Miz TV’ segment was not scripted nor reflects WWE’s values.”
