"Amendment 1 is ridiculous," Punk wrote. "It's an invasion of people's rights. North Carolina, why do you care if somebody wants to marry who they love? Same sex marriage should be legal. The fact that it's illegal is embarrassing.
"Divorce rate is at least 50% between men and women, so don't give me the values angle. Making same sex marriage illegal is the same as having segregated drinking fountains. Embarrassing. The human race is embarrassing. #evolve"
Punk spent much of the afternoon debating the topic, responding to users both supporting and attacking his views. One Twitter user in particular (@ezeekay) got under Punk's skin, writing, "Man was meant for woman, and even the thought of homo's make me sick."
Punk replied, "Kill yourself."
After tonight's RAW, a cooler-headed Straight-Edge Superstar apologized for the remark, while standing by his support of gay marriage.
"I was pretty worked up today," he admitted. "The amendment 1 situation had me all wound up. I stand by my thoughts on gay marriage 100%. How I defended that stance was 100% wrong. I admit it. You can't stoop to others levels. Sometimes I fight fire with fire and it isn't ways the best way.
"To @ezeekay: I apologize. I don't want you to kill yourself. I want you to better yourself. Just as I want to better myself. I'll start by being the better man and once again, apologize for my harsh reaction to your opinion of homosexuals making you 'sick'
"Sorry y'all. If I let anybody down, I apologize. I'll make it up to ya and move forward with a better understanding of others feelings.#pma"
