CM Punk Apologizes For Telling WWE Fan To Kill Himself

Posted by Brad Davis May 8, 2012 15 Comments

CM Punk apologized Monday evening on Twitter for telling a WWE fan who disagreed with his views on gay marriage to kill himself.

Expressing his disapproval with Amendment 1 Monday morning on Twitter, Punk wrote a message in support of gay marriage being legalized in the state of North Carolina. Amendment 1 is a controversial topic in North Carolina, as it will define marriage in the state constitution as between one man and one woman, and would ban any other type of “domestic legal union” such as civil unions and domestic partnerships.

Punk wrote, “Amendment 1 is ridiculous. 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.”

He continued, “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.”

A British user disagreed with his beliefs, writing to the WWE Superstar, “Man was meant for woman, and even the thought of homo’s make me sick.”

Punk posted the message and then wrote “Kill yourself. He also advised another fan who disagreed with him to “drink bleach.”

Following Raw, the WWE Champion issued an apology.

“I was pretty worked up today. 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.”

      There is no reason for fags to get married. It is only another globalist agenda to break down society and the middle class. Anyways no one needs government’s permission to get married so who cares what the law is. Quit being losers and begging govt to tell what you can or cant do.

        It isn’t about him being in the spotlight. Telling somebody to kill themselves can actually put him in deep shit if said person does in fact do so. This is more of a “lets be a grownup here” thing and not a selling out point of view.

      I think CM Punk needs to understand that just because someone disagrees with you doesn’t give you the right to hate them or tell them to commit suicide. One of the biggest problems I have found with those of the “liberal” affiliation is that they are most intolerant of conservative views. Isn’t that going against what the “liberal” stance is all about, being tolerant and accepting of things you don’t understand? If someone prefers to live a conservative lifestyle how dare someone criticize them for it, and how dare our government define what is marriage for that matter. I have been with the same woman for over 10 years but because we choose not to play the game and pay our “marriage tax” by obtaining a license, or going through some silly ceremony we are penalized the same way a same sex couple is. This isn’t just limited to gay marriage, it affects those not wanting to be part of the system that constantly fleeces people for money. Pay to get married, pay a tax on the same income twice, pay sales tax, pay taxes on yard sales, pay huge taxes at the pump (even those companies are all in the top 10 of fortune 500), pay for wars you don’t support, pay for schools even when you don’t have kids, etc.

      I think this just underlies the fact that with the advent of social media we all need to watch what we put in writing, especially celebrities like CM Punk. Good on Punk for apologizing, but the next time he really should try not to post on Twitter if he gets worked up about something.

      He got a larger amount of boos from the crowd than I expected. It was more obvious live then on tv.
