Wrestler Accuses ‘Love Sponge’ of Hate Speech

February 25th, 2010 by

(CN) - Pro wrestler Awesome Kong claims a radio called her in the middle of the night from a blocked number and threatened to “‘sucker punch’ her until she stopped breathing,” adding, “You’ll be dead like all those other niggers in Haiti you fat black bitch!” Kong, whose real name is Kia Stevens, says AT&T refuses to identity the caller, who she believes is Todd Clem, aka Bubba the Love Sponge®.
Stevens, who works for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, says she got into a backstage spat with Clem, a Total Nonstop contracted interviewer and radio host known as Bubba the Love Sponge®, after Clem disparaged efforts to raise money for victims of the earthquake in Haiti.
Stevens claims Clem called her at her Tampa home from a blocked number at 5 a.m. on Feb. 10. She says the caller said, “‘This is Bubba the Love® Sponge here at (and at this point the caller named a radio station’ and then alluded to the fact that the call was being broadcast on the radio. “The caller then started talking in a stream, threatening to come to the petitioner’s house and ‘sucker punch’ her until she stopped breathing and then said, ‘You’ll be dead like all those other niggers in Haiti you fat black bitch … Fuck Haiti!”
Stevens claims that when she did not respond, “the male who had identified himself as ‘Bubba the Love Sponge®’ stated ‘What d’ya think about that, Monkey Kong?’ … ‘What? Those big fat Jimmy Walker lips ain’t talking shit now, huh?’”
Stevens says she recognized Clem’s voice, having heard his radio show.
According to media reports, Clem claimed on his show that Stevens had approached him backstage after a Jan. 18 wrestling match and “sucker-punched” him in the face several times while yelling “This is for Haiti!”
Kong reportedly served a two-day suspension for the altercation.
Stevens sued Clem and AT&T, demanding that the phone company release records that would identity the caller.
She is represented in Hillsborough County Court by Chris Mancini of Fort Lauderdale.

    Wow, this is unbelievable, did she memorize all this or record it? Give me a break, this won’t work out to well for her, someone tell her to save her money and act like she never called her attorney, come on you can’t be that gullible, can you? This one should be an easy one for you Bubba.

    Can’t believe her lawyer actually allowed her too sue clem with out knowing for a fact if he had anything to do with it.

    This is obviously a sick fan trying to shake it up!

    Hopefully, ATT comes through and gets the big man off the hook!

    Bubba is a worker and not stupid enough to do this!

    What a fat pig!it sounds like this bitch is tryin to get some attenion like all of them do. I’m sorry Bubba. You’re famous and she aint so that makes you a target. Call Kevin and make sure to counter sue for AT LEAST legal fees and time lost on her dumb ass. Excuse my spelling for this next attempt but just for fun go visit a maxo facial surgeon and inquire about T M J. If this pig landed a shot to your jaw it could screw with your career! If that happens, I’m sueing her! Also your boss has a stake in your verbal health and he’s got some VERY deep pockets. Don’t take this lightly kick this bitches ass and then go kick her mommas ass then kick her ass again! Examples have to be made!
