  POSITIVE RESPONSE

Darren Young Gets Support From Fellow WWE Superstars On Twitter

HIAC12_Photo_083Following what could possibly be the most nonchalant coming out in history this morning, WWE Superstar Darren Young is getting some massive congratulations from fellow athletes and fans alike.

This technically makes him the first openly gay WWE Superstar, which the organization was quick to applaud in a statement this morning:

via WWE:

“WWE is proud of Darren Young for being open about his sexuality, and we will continue to support him as a WWE Superstar. Today, in fact, Darren will be participating in one of our Be A Star anti-bullying rallies in Los Angeles to teach children how to create positive environments for everyone regardless of age, race, religion or sexual orientation.”

Below, more support from fellow athletes.

      The flippant couldn’t-give-a-shit attitude is kind of the point.

      I haven’t watched WWE in years, but I do know if Stephanie McMahon has your back, you’re good! Love the fact that his co-workers basically tripped over themselves offering support. Well done, Mr.Young! Wish you much success and happiness.

      Yayyy for Steph and Triple H supporting him and I’m glad his tag partner does too! :)
