During a recent episode of AEW Unrestricted, Aubrey Edwards spoke on the criticism that she receives online and what she does to cope with it. Here’s what she had to say:
Oh boy, oh boy. Yeah … I mean like, there’s always going to be people who vocalize what they don’t like. There’s always that really vocal minority. The ones that are behind the keyboards that are very ‘Oh, I don’t like this, blah blah blah blah.’ It’s like, it’s fine. You’re allowed to like or not like certain things. Everyone’s different, there’s enough wrestling out there for you, whatever. But the thing that’s really interesting is just how many — it’s a very common occurrence where people just say like, I take too much attention away from the wrestlers. I’m too distracting.
My favorite comment online once was that someone couldn’t watch the match because my lipstick was too distracting. Yeah, I’m like ‘You’re not paying attention to wrestling. Like what the hell are you doing buddy?’ Yeah, I think the social media team gets at least one email a week about me, and how I’m a distraction. And that people can’t watch All Elite Wrestling because I’m on the TV.”
I have to. Well, I don’t stay off social media. I definitely still — I’m involved, I’m on Twitter, Instagram, all the time. But yeah, I try and just only focus on the good stuff. Because I don’t wanna live my life focused on the negativity. I’m a very light-hearted, bubbly person. I try and stay that way.
