WWE Promises Its Wrestlers Won’t Make Any More Fairy Fag Jokes

WWE performer John Cena attacked Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson during a February broadcast by calling him a “fruity pebble” and throwing in a Brokeback Mountain line, which really wasn’t an insult to gay people, but to WWE’s viewing audience, because jesus Cena, that insult rap was pathetic. Especially from a man who wrestles other men while oiled up and wearing a Speedo. But it was enough to formulate frowns at the GLAAD factory! The group says it “contacted WWE executives and explained the problem after receiving our first reports. They then spoke to John Cena and the show’s writers. We have been assured that not only will such incidents not happen again, WWE intends to reach out to their adolescent audience, with messages aimed making it clear that bullying someone with homophobic taunts or for their perceived sexual orientation is wrong.” Well I’ll be bodyslammed!

“WWE takes this issue very seriously, and has already spoken with our talent about these incidents,” the organization says in a statement. “We are taking steps and working with GLAAD to ensure that our fans know that WWE is against bullying or discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. We strongly value our fans in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, and apologize to them for these incidents.”

Now who’s going to tell Vince McMahon?

      I’m a pro wrestling fan. Cena uses homosexuality as an insult very often. I don’t know if Cena or a writer is coming up with the jokes, but whoever is should be ashamed of himself.

      Now, this might not be so bad if Cena was a heel (bad guy wrestler). But he’s not; in fact, he’s pretty much the biggest face (good guy wrestler) in the WWE. His character is aimed towards children, in particular. When Cena (or anyone) uses being gay as an insult, he’s effectively saying ‘being gay is bad.’

      Wrestling is a business that attracts body-conscious men who put on skimpy, tight or fetishistic costumes to engage in sweaty grabbing and grappling domination games in pairs or groups.

      Christ, the fashion industry isn’t as gay as pro wrestling is. Fashion designers spend all day thinking about what women want and touching models.

      Seriously, pro wrestling: the only thing that might make y’all actually appear gayer would involve insertion and body fluids.

      We’ll see how long it lasts. Professional wrestling relies on homophobic jokes to defuse the homoeroticism inherent in a mostly male crowd watching oiled up bodybuilders in man-panties grapple with each other. Without it you’ve basically got Naked Kombat without the money shots.

      Homophobic shit-head Vince McMahon has engaged in more stylized rimming than most gay porn stars!

      I call BS. They are gonna fix anything. And this is pretty ironic seeing as to how wrestling is the gayest sport there is.

      There was a gay wrestler I believe, he may still be performing, but he said that the lockerroom was not kind to him. As has been said above, wrestling/MMA/that whole genre is basically about grabbing and pulling all over men, much of it being crotch grabbing. The homophobia is a defense mechanism. Also, we all know how insecure most men in this athletic field are when it comes to being seen as macho. But, hopefully the WWE follows up on their words and we can see a positive change.

      Looks like the WWE CEO is about to waste some more money running for the US Senate – as a Republican tea bagger.

      @Shannon: Gee, that’s funny, because nobody said a single goddamn thing you just “quoted,” you idiot! If you’re going to lie, pick a thread where there are more than TEN responses so it’s harder to check.

      Go back to Troll school, princess. You’re not ready yet.

      I’m surprised that anybody from WWE could string together a coherent set of sentences.

      John Cena better not ever eat out again. There are lots of gay cooks and waiters out there ready to spit in his food. And he better not get in a car accident and need the help of a gay man to survive. Hate words have consequences, Cena.
