After being on the receiving end of vile abuse online, Rhea Ripley broke character to defiantly hit back.
Rhea Ripley has branded a social media user a “F’N Disgrace” after they posted an abusive message about the star.
The user said that Ripley “should be abused,” before the Raw star broke character to fire back.
“Hi, Demi here…. Ya know, the real life human inside Rhea Ripley. Just wanted to point out that WRESTLERS & any form of ENTERTAINER is a real life human off screen. Don’t wish harm on ANYONE. Don’t wish for anyone to be BURIED. Don’t wish for anyone to be FIRED. F’N disgrace.”

The post comes after SmackDown star Shotzi deleted her Twitter account after being sent a series of abusive messages. The star came in for heavy criticism online following her appearance in the women’s Money In The Bank Ladder Match.
During the bout, a spot between Shotzi and Alexa Bliss didn’t go of as planned with both women landing awkwardly. After the match, Shozi was on the end of a number of messages calling for her to be fired and sent back to NXT among other things.
The star initially released a statement hitting back at her critics, before deleting her account altogether. In a post on her Instagram Stories, Shozi explained that she was fine, thanking fans for their concern.
“I appreciate everyone checking on me but I swear I’m fine. I have been going through the toughest year of my personal life so it’s deeper than nasty comments, but also Twitter has not helped with my already fragile mind state. Just trying to stay motivated and positive. I am focused on my goals and not what’s on the internet,”
On a similar theme, Bianca Belair recently reminded fans to respect the boundaries that exist between themselves and performers.
