Another WWE star is in hot water for using a homophobic slur.
CM Punk was caught on camera saying “You homo!” at a fan during a live event in Australia.
“WWE does not condone this type of language or bias and we reinforce that with our talent who are independent contractors,” a WWE rep told TMZ.com.
“…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,” CM Punk tweeted following the incident.
CM Punk’s contract with the WWE reportedly ends on July 17. He’s booked in the main event at the Money In The Bank pay-per-view against WWE champion John Cena.
