Jordan Myles announced Wednesday he quit his job with WWE.

In a video he posted to Twitter (h/t SEScoops' Ian Carey), Myles said he no longer wanted to work for the company (warning: video contains profanity):

"As of today, I'd like to officially announce that I quit f--king WWE. I am no longer employed. I refuse to work for racist...I f--king quit. F--k them! I hate that f--king company and everything they f--king stand for. All they ever did was hold our f--king people back. I do this s--t for the culture, I don't need anyone's f--king permission to do what I want to do. Screw Jordan Myles, don't ever call me by that slave name, call me ACH and don't forget the super b---h. I quit, f--k you!"

Myles, who had risen to prominence as ACH on the independent circuit, signed with WWE and reported to the Performance Center in February. The 31-year-old made his NXT television debut in the first round of the NXT Breakout Tournament in July.

He defeated Cameron Grimes in the tournament final and unsuccessfully challenged for the NXT Championship, losing to Adam Cole on the Sept. 4 edition of NXT.

While Myles' stock appeared to be on the rise, things took a turn when he drew attention to a WWE T-shirt that he believed referenced racial stereotypes:

WWE released a statement addressing the matter (h/t Pro Wrestling Sheet's Ryan Satin):

"Albert Hardie Jr. (aka Jordan Myles) approved this T-shirt for sale. As always, we work collaboratively with all of our performers to develop logos and merchandise designs and get their input and approval before proceeding. This was the same process with Albert, and we responded swiftly once he later requested that the logo/T-shirt be redesigned. No t-shirts were sold."

Myles disputed that narrative:

According to the Internet Wrestling Database, Myles last wrestled Sept. 21, teaming up with Keith Lee to defeat Dorian Mak and Riddick Moss.

The status of Myles' WWE contract remains unclear.
