A.W. went on a massive Twitter rant on Friday after learning that he was released by the WWE. His release comes less than two weeks after he made a Kobe Bryant rape joke during episode 1001 of “Monday Night Raw” which aired on July 30.

A.W.’s wrestler Titus O’Neil was facing Kofi Kingston when the manager said, “Titus O’Neil is like Kobe Bryant at a hotel (room) in Colorado. He’s unstoppable!!”

The WWE issued an apology later that night, as did A.W., but the apologies apparently weren’t enough.

A.W. complained over Twitter that the WWE has become too politically correct after previously encouraging its personalities to be brash. His tweets are below:

AWPromotions is no more ladies and gentlemen. Thank you for your support and hate, it’s been a great run. Now I get to do me which isn’t PG!

— A W (@AWPromotions) August 10, 2012

I’ve offended the wrong people that taught me how to have ATTITUDE It was the #WWE that made me bold and now it has turned it’s back on me

— A W (@AWPromotions) August 10, 2012

Let this be a lesson to up and coming talent in the WWE don’t try and be great like the Rock or Stone Cold. WWE isn’t the same…

Just be normal shut up and be a yes man so you can collect your check and feel like your special. #SELLOUTS!!

I remember a time when the WWE didn’t care about breaking the mold but now everyone is so afraid of their own shadow. #RemeberTheFans

— A W (@AWPromotions) August 10, 2012

Thanks to the fans who showed me support over the whole Kobe thing and to those I upset I apologize again. Remember It’s entertainment folks

A.W. also referenced a widely believed secret that the WWE has become more politically correct because Linda McMahon is running for a senate seat in Connecticut:

I really do hope Linda wins that election because If not then all of this BS has been for nothing. #GoLinda!!
