Wrestling star Maxwell Jacob Friedman has sparked outrage with a shocking reply to a snap of a young fan by asking ‘is it too late to abort?’

The heel grappler, 25, was tagged in a post on Twitter that showed a little girl at fan fest flipping the middle finger while wearing a shirt which read "Hate MJF".

The tweet was captioned: "Hey MJF I think I found your biggest supporter here at the Fan Fest."

All Elite Wrestling (AEW) star MJF retweeted the post with reply: "Is it to [sic] late to abort?"

The New York native is renowned for never breaking his bad guy character even outside of the ring, but he was met with a barrage of furious reactions by fans who felt he went too far.

One user tweeted: "Yeah that was a bit to [sic] far man I’m all for being in character but na [sic] too far."

Another fan wrote: "Is this all it takes to be ‘omg best heel ever’.”

MJF works for Fulham owner Tony Khan’s AEW, which was founded in 2019 as a rival to Vince McMahon’s World Wrestling Entertainment which has dominated the industry for decades.

One fan tagged Khan in a response, saying: “You know, it’s one thing to have a little fun on Twitter, but dude, you really crossed the line.

"This is just sad. I hope @TonyKhan calls you on the carpet for this."

Another user said: "Wow, I get your [sic] a heel, but that's taking it a bit too far. Shame on you Max."

Last year, MJF caused controversy when he flipped the middle finger a seven-year-old fan during an autograph signing session.

Speaking to TMZ afterwards, the lad’s dad said: “I tried to laugh it off knowing he’s just in character, but it really upset him.

“I know that’s his gimmick but he’s only seven and doesn’t understand.”

MJF and AEW have been contacted for comment.
