WWE Ex-Employee Calls Out The Company For Unequal Pay
Makeup artist Stella Kae recently called out WWE for their level of unequal pay on Twitter. She describes herself as a strong proponent of women getting equal pay, particularly in the WWE.
“As people become more socially aware in this country, I wonder if WWE will ever address equal pay for women,” Stella wrote. “They risk their lives and bodies just the same to make SUBSTANTIALLY less than male talent.”
She also bought up the fact Nikki Bella is the highest paid female talent and only gets paid $400,000 whilst her male counterparts get close to $12 million. She received a response from a fan stating that the women do not earn equal pay-per-view buys, so they should not have equal pay.
“Have they ever truly been given an equal opportunity to do these things?” Kae replied. “People use these same kind of tired excuses for not booking black models or extending foundation ranges…lets call it what it is: INEQUALITY.”
In addition to WWE, Stella Kae has also done makeup work for America’s Next Top Model, The Apprentice, Braxton Family Values, and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, among others.
