Max Custer caused a great deal of controversy this week with lines from his rap on AEW Dark. This led the company to cut its share of the YouTube show.
Caster focused on Simone Biles ’mental health issues, and he covered the Duke Lacrosse team debates. Dozens of fans reviewed the situation, and that led to Max Caster’s name trending.
The line he said was, “Kicking a donkey for miles requires you to be as mentally healthy as Simone Biles.” Many people were very upset by this lyric and many spoke on social media.
He also said, “Sydal pays for this, I liken these nicknames to Duke lacrosse.” This coincided with a time when three members of the Duke Lacrosse group were falsely accused of rape.
“I usually like Max Caster very much, even the rappers who are close to the line, but it was a horrible idea on a very high level. He shouldn’t have said anything about it, if asked, no one should have approved of him and The AEW shouldn’t have included it on the show, which they had to edit for 6 days. Be better, ”David Bixenspan wrote on Twitter. This tweet was joined by many who were dissatisfied with Max Caster’s creative direction.
The rap was aired in the dark and was pre-recorded. They could have edited the lines, but they didn’t. The AEW eventually cut out the controversial words and they embargoed the clip, the copyright affecting everyone who posted it. We were able to find a single video of the rap, which you can watch below … until the AEW is turned off.
The AEW will try not to interrupt the talent promos, but Tony Khan may want to start studying Caster’s words before taking the stage. He caused quite a stir this time.
