A WWE Mae Young Classic competitor has been branded “disgusting” after she pulled out her tampon and shoved it down an opponent’s throat.
Priscilla Kelly’s stunt from December’s Suburban Fight event quickly went viral as thousands were left repulsed by the spot in her match.
WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross was one of those leading the charge, calling it “embarrassing.”
Former WWE superstar Gail Kim wrote on Twitter: “I’m seeing this post of a women’s match that got disgusting and I’m not gonna repost it Bc it’s seriously a disgrace.
“Why??? Whoever thought that was a spot that was gonna get a pop and was worth it….. NO. how about telling a story in the ring with your wrestling instead?”
And DX legend “Road Dogg” Jesse James commented: “This stuff is the reason some people despise our industry. It’s got nothing to do with ‘taking life seriously’ it’s about dignity and a personal pride. She obviously has none!”
But Kelly, who lost to Deonna Purrazzo in the first round of the Mae Young Classic last year, has come out fighting in her defense.
She claimed people were only shocked because it involved a “vagina,” while in wrestling “a penis is funny and awesome.”
Kelly tweeted: “Hey guys. Ya know, it’s all fake. 21+ show with a bar. Can’t take life so serious all the time.
“A penis is funny and awesome. A vagina is disgusting and trashy. #Equality?”
Kelly shot to fame initially after appearing on reality TV show “My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding,” and she used to go under the nickname of “Gypsy Princess” or “Gypsy Queen.”
She has since changed her persona to a much more sexual and gothic tone, and she is known as “Hell’s Favorite Harlot” and regularly licks and bites her opponents.
The grappler, who is married to fellow wrestler Darby Allin, also has been likened to WWE star Paige.
Despite her many critics, Kelly did receive some support from other performers and fans.
ECW and hardcore icon Tommy Dreamer wrote on Twitter: “Dear @priscillakelly_ I get it Its Mr.Socko female cousin Ms.Stinkflo. Whatever it takes to entertain. You my dear are HARDCORE.”
While wrestling fan @Jake_Radio tweeted: “I’m pissing at how upset this is making folk. Joey Ryan flips guys with his d–k. Rikishi used to rub his unwashed fat ass in people’s faces.
“Hot Lesbian Action. Live Sex Celebrations. Staple guns to the forehead ffs. And THIS is where people go ‘oh no no, this is too far.’”
