WWE® and John Cena® Go Pink with Susan G. Komen for the Cure®

STAMFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

WWE (WWE) today announced a partnership with Susan G. Komen for the Cure featuring WWE Superstar John Cena co-branded, pink and black ring gear, which will be debuted at tonight’s Night of Champions pay-per-view event in Boston. Cena will wear the Special Edition gear through October in honor of breast cancer awareness month. Fans can purchase the merchandise, including co-branded hats, t-shirts, headbands and wristbands, at live events and online at WWEShop.com, and WWE will donate 100 percent of its profits (at least 30 percent of the retail purchase price) to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Susan G. Komen for the Cure is the world’s largest nonprofit funder of breast cancer research and community outreach programs. To support Susan G. Komen’s mission, WWE will utilize all its assets, including TV broadcasts, live events, digital and social media to generate awareness and encourage fans to get involved by signing up for “Race for the Cure” events in their local communities.

Approximately five million women -- more female viewers than the top rated shows on women’s networks – watch WWE’s weekly programming.

yep.
and even if you don’t care about abortion itself,
it certainly can INCREASE the chance of breast cancer.
...so, even an atheist,
should refuse to support Komen,
as long as they are affiliated with Planned Parenthood.
=
( fighting breast cancer, by FUNDING something,
that significantly increases the chance of breast cancer?
...that type of insanity is unique to liberals. )

Yep, abortionists.

Of course, they have always been political. You would think men don’t ever get cancer at all and only womyn need money and research.

I just drool over John Cena, but I think he’s very misguided in his support of Komen’s foundation. Good thing to be against cancer in any form, bad thing that her foundation supports killing babies before they are born! (Planned Parenthood probably thinks the unborn are “cancer”).

Lots of folks don’t dig deep enough to really find out about the charities or “good causes” they support. And, sadly, there are probably a lot of good charities that have very shady/disappointing parts. Nothing is ever as it seems...

Yes, the whole thing is sullied now with the blood of innocents.

Even before the shiite hit the fan on this thing, I was sick of all the incessant pink marketing. Now I try to avoid buying anything with that damn pink on it.

Because nothing makes the case for abortion like the WWE.

Strange since the McMachons are so Republican.

Why support baby killers?

Me too.

It was always a marketing gimick, just a brand.

Once they made the NFL stars looks like pinkos all last year, I had enough.

BTW where is that cure?

Much love and respect for all taken down and survivors of BC, but a good alibi doesn’t make bad people impervious to scorn or examination.

Well if you kill them before they are born they don't get breast cancer.

Komen stepped in it and lost the support of pro-life and pro-abort. They cut out Planned Parenthood funding, they lost the pro-aborts who screamed loudly so Komen restored PP funding. That angered pro-lifers who pulled their donations. As I understand, donations to Komen are down 50%, because at this point no one trusts them. They ended up pleasing no one.

I wish the same would happen with the Democrats for their in again-out again of God and Israel in their platform.

Since they’re men, shouldn’t they champion finding a cure for prostate cancer and leave the breast cancer to women? Or does no one really care at all about men’s cancer?

Cena doesn’t wear panties like the rest of those wrestlers. Ok, he wears jorts, but at least he isn’t in panties.
