CM Punk Apologizes For Saying Homophobic Slur During WWE Show
CM Punk has addressed news regarding a homophobic slur he directed to a fan during Monday’s Raw live event in Adelaide, Australia, which was reported by TMZ. Punk posted the following on his Twitter page:
“I’m glad TMZ posted that video because everybody needs to be held accountable for their bullshit, me included. What I said was bullshit.
“I’m embarrassed. I own up to being a total douche in this situation and I offer a sincere apology to anybody I hurt with careless words.”
Meanwhile, a representative for WWE issued the following statement to TMZ: “WWE does not condone this type of language or bias and we reinforce that with our talent who are independent contractors.”
TMZ posted footage of Punk shouting at fans. Midway through the promo, Punk shouted to a fan, “You homo!”
He continued, “I guess you’re right, that’s why I’m picking on you two jerks right now. You have a vagina. You have a vagina. Nice faux hawk, you homo! Yeah, I want you to come over the rail so I can twist you and turn you inside out.”
