WWE Responds To CM Punk's Homophobic Slur
TMZ.com 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 v----a. You have a v----a. Nice faux hawk, you homo! Yeah, I want you to come over the rail so I can twist you and turn you inside out."
TMZ notes that WWE is working with GLAAD and produced a series of anti-bullying commercials following incidents involving Michael Cole and John Cena. The website adds that calls to WWE and GLAAD regarding Punk's promo were not returned.
UPDATE: A rep for WWE said, "WWE does not condone this type of language or bias and we reinforce that with our talent who are independent contractors."
There really isn't much they can do anyways with Punk likely leaving WWE in a few weeks.
