WWE News: Superstar Gets Removed From Advertising For Next Week’s ‘Monday Night Raw’

wwe news: superstar gets removed from advertising for next week’s ‘monday night raw’

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Amid reports suggesting that she might soon be leaving WWE and returning to her home country of Japan, it now appears that Monday Night Raw superstar Kairi Sane has quietly been removed from images advertising the show’s July 6 episode.
On Saturday night, WWE shared a graphic on Twitter for the upcoming match between Raw Women’s Champion Asuka’s upcoming match against SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley. The image features Bayley’s tag teammate and closest ally, Sasha Banks, to her right, confirming her as the blue brand champ’s corner woman. But while Asuka has spent more than a year teaming up with Sane as one-half of The Kabuki Warriors, Sane was nowhere to be seen on the new graphic.

Shortly after WWE posted the aforementioned advertisement for the champion vs. champion match, a fan tweeted a screenshot featuring the original image, which shows Sane to the left of Asuka and the exact same text describing the upcoming bout in the caption. As pointed out by WrestlingNews.co, it’s not yet certain why WWE decided to remove the 31-year-old from the graphic, though she has apparently been cleared to return to the ring after missing several weeks …

Many have called iOS14 the Windows Vista of iPhone operating systems, as the OS is constantly informing users or asking permission for various trivial things apps want to do in the background.It’s not just users that are complaining of these new permission pop-ups, but also an association of European advertising association, who are saying that they are being forced to ask iPhone users twice for permission to track them across apps and websites.At present to track users advertisers have to ask permission in line with the GDPR, but with iOS14 iPhone users will have to agree a second time to allow advertisers to gain access to the unique Advertising Identifier.The second pop-up would look like this (AppleInsider). The advertisers are complaining that asking a second time is likely to cause user confusion and carries “a high risk of user refusal.”Apple, in turn, said they are offering developers plenty of opportunities to explain to users before the pop-up is displayed and that developers can avoid triggering the pop-up merely by using Apple’s own anonymised tracking tools, which does not require asking for permission.While Apple says their actions are motivated by their commitment to user …

As it was noted in the recent Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Kairi Sane is expected to leave WWE soon so she could be with her husband in Japan.However, as of a few days ago, she was still with the company and was scheduled to be on Monday Night Raw. Sane was featured in the graphic that was posted to Twitter last night to hype the champion vs. champion match for Raw that will feature Raw Women’s Champion Asuka against SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley.There appears to be a change of plans because a new graphic posted to WWE’s Twitter does not include Sane in Asuka’s corner.

Balancing between free expression and profitability.

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Major companies like Unilever, Lego, Dunkin Donuts, Patagonia, Coca-Cola and Target have said they will not advertise with Facebook until “meaningful action” is taken to address misinformation and hate speech. The #StopHateForProfit campaign asks businesses to suspend advertising with the tech giant, in response to Facebook policies. Companies like Best Buy, Pfizer, Ford, Adidas and Clorox have joined the list of over 500 major brands that have unfriended the platform recently.
In response to the ad nauseum, Facebook’s VP Of Global Affairs, Nick Clegg, was recently quoted in Forbes: “Billions of people use Facebook and Instagram because they have good experiences—they don’t want to see hateful content, our advertisers don’t want to see it, and we don’t want to see it.”. He explained the company’s position on hate speech: “There is no incentive for us to do anything but remove it.”
