Bubba the Love Sponge out of wrestling promotion?

Alleged radio personality Bubba the Love Sponge (left) has been hired by wrestling promotion TNA (Total Nonstop Action) to do backstage interviews. That was before he decided to join Pat Robertson and Rush Limbaugh in the idiot parade and made stupid comments about Haiti on Twitter. He was absent from last night's TNA pay-per-view, and was told not to show up for work Monday morning.

On being told not to come to the production meeting he wrote, "Was supposed to be at the [production] meeting at 11. They called and said not come. This is starting [to be] not fun. All because of my Haiti comments. Sorry people can't handle the truth."

Actually Mr. Sponge seems to be having all the truth handling problems here. He also seems to be having a few employment problems with TNA.

Going to bed had a long talk with Eric b. I don't want to take over jbs backstage interviews. I may have to walk away. Cause I don't agree..... With letting him go. Now if I would happen to take those interviews over. All ready I'm the bad guy. That's not cool. Already some bulls*** about..... Going down and I'm in the middle of it. I have to take a long hard look at weather I want to really do this or not. Bubba"

The JB in question is Jeremy Borash, who allegedly was "taken off the air" by TNA. Aledegly being that some of this may be a work, and some of it might not be.
