According to a new report from Gothamist, a group of WWE fans is planning to hold a protest outside of the Barclays Center this evening, calling for President Donald Trump to be removed from the company’s Hall of Fame.

The protest is in wake of the controversial comments that President Trump made following the events of Charlottesville, Virginia last weekend.

John Stevens, a 30-year old resident of Brooklyn, commented on the protest.

“We were talking about how Trump gave that crazy press conference, and then thought about how he’s in the WWE Hall of Fame even though Hulk Hogan got kicked out over racism,” Stevens told us. “What Trump has done is remarkably worse than what Hogan did, since he’s dividing the country by siding with neo-Nazis and white nationalists.”

“I was sickened by that press conference, and his response to Charlottesville,” Stevens said. “Basically WWE is endorsing those comments by having [Trump] in their hall of fame. I can’t wrap my brain around the fact that they’d leave him in there, take Hogan out and claim they say they care about racism.”

The information about this protest can be found on a website that has been created, asking for President Trump’s removal from the WWE Hall of Fame.

Stephen Miller, another Brooklyn resident, says that if WWE doesn’t respond, protests could happen inside the Barclays Center.

“We might protest during the shows, we’ve got prime seats,” he told us. “Where our seats are, you’d definitely see it, you’d hear the chants. WWE could take care of this problem now, or they could have it come up during one of their biggest pay-per-views of the year and have it be on the WWE Network forever.”

WWE has not commented at this time.
