WWE Hall of Famer Christian Slater is facing a number of legal actions after being caught filming a video of himself doing what he said was a religious act in his home in the United Kingdom.

In a video uploaded on Monday to Facebook, Slater appeared to hold up a crucifix and the words ‘The Lord is my strength and my strength is my Lord’ in the UK, where the UK has no laws banning the use of symbols or words deemed offensive.

A number of UK media outlets reported that the video was taken on the eve of the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The WWE Network has confirmed that Slater has been suspended indefinitely and the network has issued a statement condemning the incident and the actions of Slater.

“We are deeply disappointed by the actions displayed by Mr Slater and the disrespect shown towards our fans,” the statement reads.

“We are working closely with our legal counsel to review this matter.”

In a statement posted on Tuesday, the WWE Network said Slater had been suspended from his duties as a professional wrestler.

“After careful consideration of the video and its context, WWE has terminated Mr Slater’s employment pending the outcome of the relevant investigation,” the company said.

“This is a very sad day for all of us in WWE and we extend our deepest sympathies to Mr Slater.

The full statement on WWE’s website reads: “We were disappointed by Mr’s actions in a recent video that has caused outrage in the community.

We have terminated Mr’s employment, pending the results of the investigation.

“The video was filmed in a backyard in Leeds, England, where Slater is a regular attendee at events.”

It was very, very provocative.””

I thought, ‘Oh, that’s what Jesus is doing’, so I put it on.

It was very, very provocative.”

The clip was uploaded to Facebook by his friend, Christian Gurney, and has since been viewed over 1 million times.

In the clip, Slater is seen holding the crucifix in front of a small crowd of people, with a caption that reads: ‘The people of this country are my people and I want to give them my love and my protection’.

“The people are not my enemy, but the enemies of my people are my enemies,” Slater added.

The video has been viewed more than 7,000 times on Facebook and has drawn criticism from politicians, comedians and religious leaders.

The clip is seen by many as an offensive attack on Christianity, with several US states including Louisiana, Tennessee and Alabama having already passed laws banning Christian symbols from public displays.

In response, the US Congress passed legislation in January that would make it a criminal offence to display or broadcast symbols that could be considered offensive to religion.

In April, a federal judge in Texas blocked the Texas law from going into effect.

In an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria on Monday, Slater said he had been banned from WWE events for a number the years prior because of the controversy surrounding the video.

“It’s been a really, really long time,” Slater said.

“But at this point, it’s just really unfortunate.

You know, I’ve had people say to me, ‘Why don’t you just come back and do a wrestling show?’

And I’m like, ‘Well, if it’s offensive, then I’ll come back’.”
