He said something like this I guess:

"Joanna, you look great tonight. If our president were here, he'd want to grab you by the ___"

Quote :
1. This was said over the house mic when he was doing a segment with Stokley Hathaway, not on commentary. So everyone in the building heard it and groaned.
2. He was asked not to talk about politics
3. How do I know this? He told us Gabe asked him not to and then said "Sorry Gabe" into the camera. So not just did he ignore him, he told us all he ignored him, to prove how much of a big shot he is i guess.
4. This isn't the PC police getting someone fired, Gabe apparently had a vintage meltdown at the show after it happened.
5. He was shit on commentary all show, he might have been quietly not asked back anyway.
What a clown Joey Styles is clown

I dislike Joey Styles, but if what he said was just what Moose quoted, this is a ridiculous overreaction.

He was told not to be political. He went political. He's gone.

If you have a specific request by your bosses or those above you in your company, you don't go against them. IMO, despite it being a funny remark - because of course it was - it was not proper. Not the time nor the place to say that.

It wasn't even funny. Joey Styles is a Alt-Right clown with a chip on his shoulder. He fit back in ECW in the '90s. He doesn't belong in Evolve.

Not a matter of Political Correctness.
You have a show you want to present to your audience. If the producers don't want you to mention politics/terrorism/sex/(theme here), you just don't.

Imagine you start working somewhere and the company you're working for gives you a car. If they tell you "Please, make sure you always park your vehicle properly and keep it tidy at all times!", will you take it to the nearest pig farm and park it on the pen, only to then get fired soon after?

EDIT: plus the fact that, in any case, it brings bad reputation to the company as well. And it is more than enough grounds for Trump to sue them if he so wants, all because of a joke.  They're just keeping their hands clean - and they did well.

CHIKARA Also Parts Ways With Joey Styles
http://411mania.com/wrestling/chikara-also-parts-ways-with-joey-styles/

– CHIKARA’s Mike Quackenbush posted the following today, confirming that they have terminated their relationship with Joey Styles , following his actions at Evolve 72

The events of the last few days have been just cause to take a look at the state of professional wrestling. The art form that I love, and have dedicated my entire adult life to, is embarrassingly behind the times. It is beholden to outdated tenets that threaten to render it…obsolete at worst, and a punchline at best.

I know there are others, influential and celebrated, that imagine pro-wrestling to be a bubble in which the social norms from a bygone era are still relevant and valid. At CHIKARA, we rail against them, and those ideals, with everything we make. It is one thing to speak, to voice an opinion. It is one thing to call for change, to wish for change, to imagine how that change might come about. It is another thing to make it. At CHIKARA, we make it happen. It doesn’t matter to us in the least how many people show up to see it, or how many people recognize it for what it is. Our mantra is not about critical acclaim or pats on the back: “We believe pro-wrestling should be fun. That’s why we make it for everyone.”

Effective today, we are terminating our relationship with Joey Styles. Effective today, we are instituting a zero tolerance policy for misogynistic, racist, and/or homophobic speech, written or verbal, whether it’s directed toward our cast, our crew, or our patrons. This is the shape of CHIKARA.

To all that craft and shape pro-wrestling, we must fully understand this: the patrons of our art form demand more of us. It is to them – those that empower us to create the larger-than-life spectacle of professional wrestling – that we are beholden. Not to an archaic sub-culture made up of turn-of-the-last-century carny values.

The time for us to do away with antiquated and insulting vocabulary, like the term “mark,” is right now.

The time for us to relinquish any last vestige of power we’ve given to outmoded wrestling rhetoric is right now.

The time for us to draw a line in the sand, and to say this is where we stand on equality and integration in our art form, is right now.

The patrons of our amazing art form deserve not just our respect, but our thoughtful presence of mind in 2016 and beyond. We owe nothing to “the business.” The people our antecedents called “marks” are not handing us their dollars because they fail to understand what it is we truly make – they support us in spite of it. They come because they know our kind of live entertainment is a viable art form, not some midway hustle. They come for an inclusive experience where they can be bolstered by a passionate community of like-minded fans.

At CHIKARA, we love pro-wrestling every bit as much as our fans do. We love it so much, we want it to change. Let’s take a step toward a world where we need not be subject to any type of hate speech, and that the only violence we witness is of the neatly choreographed variety.

He should have let Styles go before though because he's a trash announcer Thirsty Mofos

I can understand that. But the way they handled his termination was the giveaway. It wasn't because 'he violated our policy'. It was because 'what he said was outrageous and therefore is terminated'. You get what I'm saying?

After seeing the video it wasn't that bad.

All the piling on Styles is bullshit. Mike Quackenbush runs a clown promotion and needs to get his head out of his ass.

I get Gabe firing him. Wrong place, wrong time, wrong joke Joey. But people don't need to pile on Styles like this for a dumb little joke.
