As of this writing, the petition has nearly 5,000 supporters. Here is a portion of the petition:

Consistent with this statement, WWE should remove Donald Trump from the Hall of Fame for his derogatory comments about Mexicans and Mexican-Americans, Muslims and other minority groups.

WWE not only employs Muslim and Middle Eastern talent, but has also recently launched the Network in the Middle East. The WWE must realize how many of its fans are Muslim. What message does it send to them to honor Donald Trump on the WWE's Hall of Fame?

And Mexico is one of WWE's biggest international markets - the WWE has a history of working with Mexican professional wrestling promotions as well as recruiting some of Mexico's top wrestlers. Many of WWE's most beloved superstars represent their Mexican heritage in the ring.

It was also noted that WWE removed Hulk Hogan from their "online properties" due to his past racist comments. While Hogan is not part of the Hall of Fame section of their website, WWE has yet to officially state that Hogan is no longer a part of the actual Hall of Fame.

Donald Trump has no place in the prestigious WWE Hall of Fame. The WWE Universe has continually expressed outrage at his induction, even booing him off the stage during his induction ceremony in 2013. He is a stain on WWE's ability to be a positive influence to its 650 million fans worldwide.

Hulk Hogan's immediate dismissal and removal from WWE's online properties due to racist comments have shown us that WWE will not tolerate those who disrespect their commitment to celebrating diversity. This is a critical moment for the WWE to scrub its ties with Donald Trump immediately.
