"I’m always there for him ’cause I want him to succeed."

The WWE RAW women's champion became fed up with racist fans and took to social media to express it.

“This. This is not okay,” Ripley posted, as seen below. “If you ever speak like this and I see it, you WILL be blocked. I will not hide names either. You deserve all the hate.”
