If you’re here reading this that most likely means you’re a pro wrestling fan, and if you’re a pro wrestling fan then you’re probably well aware that this form of entertainment isn’t always accepted by the general public. When it comes to professional wrestling, some people just don’t get it, and it appears that David Crosby is one of those people.
Crosby recently took to Twitter and he threw some major shade at pro wrestling fans when he wrote, “WWF to those of us who can read and write is Word With Friends Not wrestling.” Ouch, you have to admit that was a pretty brutal burn, but also a pretty ignorant generalization of wrestling fans in general.
As you can see Crosby couldn’t be any more out of touch with the professional wrestling world, as WWF changed its name to WWE in 2002. Another thing Crosby doesn’t seem to understand is that you don’t want to piss off pro wrestling fans, because they will make your life miserable on social media. A few months ago the bassist of Kings of Leon found this out the hard way.
Matt Hardy responded to the tweet and he noted that it’s outdated, so he suggested that David Crosby delete it.
This tweet is 20+ years outdated, incorrect & OBSOLETE.
The WWF is not pro wrestling org, it's a conservation org.

Of course Matt wasn’t the only one to respond, as Crosby is also suffering the wrath of pro wrestling fans.
Hasn't been that in 15 years, old man. Stick to what you know: being the worst part of a band that wasn't that good in their prime.

Talk to the Kings Of Leon guy. This didn't work out well for him a couple of months ago.

You should get one of those friends to tell you which decade you're currently in.

Good luck David Crosby. It’s probably going to be a while before the wrestling community leaves you alone.
