"He got fired. Yeah. He made a rape joke. I don't think—I don't like to see anyone lose their job, but if anyone is justified in getting fired, ya know, making fun of rape... I don't think that's funny," Punk said outside Mr. Chows in Beverly Hills, California on Wednesday night.
A WWE spokesman claimed to TMZ.com last week that it wasn't just the "rape joke" that cost A.W. his job, but rather "because he continued to exhibit poor judgment by making offensive and inappropriate comments on live television and on social media."
"He wasn't fired because he draws more money than I do. With @WWE it's not about Morals... It's about Money."
A.W. then posted multiple messages alluding that Punk is racist, based on Punk's cult-like savior character as the leader of the Straight Edge Society.
"This scene look familiar to anyone..?? Hey @CmPunk I know rape jokes aren't cool but what are you suggesting here? pic.twitter.com/s1mSNFx8."
"@WWE sure knows how to entertain its PG Universe. Charles Manson or the AntiChrist.. You decide! pic.twitter.com/9pcnnz1g."
He also re-tweeted a message reading, "HAHA i could see punk being a strait-edge-KKK supporter when the cameras go off...."
A.W. then responded to his critics, "ALLOW ME TO SAY THIS TO YOU WANNA BE "HE PLAYED THE RACE CARD" HATERS!! ITS NOT A RACIAL ISSUE BUT AN OFFENSIVE TO SENSITIVE VIEWER ISSUE.."
