WWE's Alexa Bliss took to Twitter on Monday morning to respond to recent criticisms made by wrestling YouTuber @JDFromNY206. The reigning Women's Tag Team Champion retweeted a clip from one of his recent videos, in which he compared her wrestling ability to her performance in bed. Bliss responded by writing, "Normally I ignore his ignorance Bc all he wants is to be recognized by bashing me... but ex freaking scuse me sir??? ... HOW DARE YOU discredit my work in such a disgraceful way."

Several fellow wrestlers then spoke out.
This is the problem right here. HES one of the problems. Cyber bullying is NOT okay and to this extent too? What a disgrace and I’m assuming he’s supposed to be a reporter of some sorts? Shame on you JD. Your work is incredible @AlexaBliss_WWE pay no mind to ignorance like this. https://t.co/cQRfIvAGTG— PAIGE (@RealPaigeWWE) May 25, 2020

The YouTuber then tried to defend himself on his Twitter account.
It's not "bullying" Paige. I'm a bully for criticizing "pro wrestling"? If ANY of you did research, you all actually retweeted & quoted tweeted that was a mock of my name, riddled with homophobic tendencies, yet none of you actually took the time of the day to tweet about THAT. https://t.co/UTUpUQbyIM— The IWC "Bully" (@JDfromNY206) May 25, 2020
By noon Bliss was trending on Twitter, as many fans took to her side.
