A WWE Wrestler Is Hating On Canada After She Got A Speeding Ticket In Edmonton (VIDEO)
The officer didn't recognize her, which seemed to set her off.
WWE superstar Lacey Evans is apparently mad at Canada after an Edmonton police officer ticketed her for speeding on the highway. She called out the whole country after her unlucky incident at a traffic stop. "Canada is terrible," she says in the video on her Twitter, which shows her getting pulled over by an officer and receiving a ticket on September 21.
Evans was in character the whole time she got pulled over, according to Wrestling Inc. She plays a sassy Southern belle character, with the catchphrase "Ya Nasty," which she used on the smiling officer who seemed amused.
"That's not a citation, is it?" she asks the officer when he walks up to her car window. "No, it's a violation ticket for speeding," he responds. "Do you know who I am?" Evans appears to challenge the officer. "I have no idea," he replies.
"Well, I am Lacey Evans and I do not rate that ticket."
"Who is Lacey Evans?" The officer seems genuinely confused, but is smiling.
"WWE Superstar, and you should know who I am!"
"Sorry ma'am, I don't. Anyways, here's the ticket."
"You have got to be kiddin' me. You nasty thing, I'll pay the ticket," she says before snatching it out of his hand. She then tells him, "Have a terrible day. Canada is terrible."
"Welcome to Edmonton," he retorts, before walking off. The video has been viewed over 300,000 times by now.
The exchange is pretty out there, and Lacey Evans is quite an entertainer. Even the officer pulling her over seemed to get a kick out of it. The officer was pretty nice to her, in true Canadian fashion.
Evans' "anti-Canada" sentiments were in full force on Twitter this weekend, even prior to her incident at the Edmonton traffic stop.
CTV Edmonton reports that it was a legitimate traffic stop and that the video was not staged. They spoke with RCMP, who confirmed this. However, they would not comment further on the matter.
Unsurprisingly, Canadians were not happy with what Evans had to say in the video.
Evans was in Edmonton for the WWE Live! show at Rogers Place on September 21. There will bein B.C. next month.
