Wrestling promotion Black Label Pro (BLP) jokingly fired referee Jeremy Tillema for criticizing famous singer Taylor Swift.
Black Label Pro is an independent American professional wrestling promotion founded in 2017 in Crown Point, Indiana. The promotion holds three titles, the BLP Heavyweight Championship, the BLP Midwest Championship, and the BLP Tag Team Championship.
Referee Jeremy Tillema recently took a shot at Taylor Swift and her fans. However, according to BLP boss Mikey Blanton’s social media, he is a huge Swift fan and often identifies himself as “Swiftie”. Blanton apparently didn’t appreciate the criticism and fired Tillema.
Black Label Pro Wrestling spared no effort to fire Jeremy Tillema and make his exit one of the most hilarious firings of the century.
“We have decided to release @JeremyTheRef from BLP because he spoke poorly of Taylor Swift. Words have consequences,” BLP tweeted.
Owner Mikey also commented on the matter. Quoting the tweet from the official BLP handle, he wrote the following:
“Zero tolerance,” he tweeted.
It should be noted that this was a joke and neither BLP nor Mikey Blanton were serious about firing Tillema.
Referee Jeremy Tillema hits back at BLP by calling out Taylor Swift fans
Referee Jeremy Tillema of BLP with humor retaliated to his boss, referencing Harvey Dent’s quote from the 2008 film The black Knight.
Jeremy Tillema then finds himself at war and posts a series of tweet mocking the hysterical reason behind BLP releasing him from the company. He then called Taylor Swift fans “irrational” and “violent”.
In another tweet, Tilemma said he was boycotting the promotion and that it had been operating under “tyrannical Swiftatorship” for too long.
“I have decided to boycott and protest @BLabelPro For too long it has operated under a tyrannical Swiftatorship. Change MUST happen before this once proud organization collapses. Join me in protesting from now on until said change happens! #lookwhatyoumademedo,” the BLP referee tweeted.
It remains to be seen how BLP or Mikey Blanton will respond to Tillema’s claims.
