Millions Of Dollars

The other night WWE wrestler Darren Young, real name Fred Rosser, was left off the upcoming tour in the Middle East. There are two sides to this. One side is his where he feels that he is being left behind because he is a openly gay man. The other side is that being gay is not cool in the Middle East...openly. 

Young stated on his Twitter account “Why do we bring the best entertainment into a country like abu dhabi and they look down upon women and gays? I get it! #MillionsofDollars.” I get why he is upset and I also get why WWE left him off the tour. Though I believe that he should be allowed to do what he loves anywhere in the world I also understand that some parts of the world are not as accepting as others and that the lives of he and other performers run the risk of being attacked. It is a wrestling company where people pretend fight each other for the entertainment of millions. They aren't a country or political party.
