Awesome Kong Speaks Out On GLOW’s Racial Stereotypes

Awesome Kong has had an up and down few years in wrestling. From her breakout appearances in TNA, to her small appearances in WWE, and her brief stint in AEW, she hasn’t really found her feet. Awesome Kong (real name Kia Stevens) has spoken out at the producers of GLOW.

In the popular Netflix series, Kong played Tammé “The Welfare Queen” Dawson, and with the show now cancelled, Kong has targeted GLOW for their racial stereotypes. Kong has directly requested that the people involved in the creation GLOW address why they made these types of decisions.

Kong says she and her fellow actresses Sydelle Noel, Britney Young, Sunita Mani, Ellen Wong, Shakira Barrera felt disempowered throughout their time on GLOW and that it has been problematic to use their faces solely in the context of racist storylines.
