WWE Star

Hurls Homophobic Slur

At Fan

7/5/2011 4:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

WWE bad guy CM Punk was caught on camera screaming "You homo!" at a fan during a verbal altercation in Australia today ... this as the WWE has said repeatedly they are trying to curb homophobic slurs.

The wrestling organization works directly with GLAAD and even produced a series of anti-bullying commercials following incidents involving announcer Michael Cole and wrestler John Cena.

Calls to GLAAD were not returned.

UPDATE: A rep for the WWE tells TMZ, "WWE does not condone this type of language or bias and we reinforce that with our talent who are independent contractors."

UPDATE 2: CM apologized via Twitter, saying, "...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."

I sure hope Harvey reads the comments related to all his GLAAD stories because it's obvious the majority of us agree that GLAAD needs to STFU!!!!!!!

Here we go again...So the words ******, Homo, and Gays can't be used...this is just getting a bit ridiculous. I am sofa-king over the gay and lesbian community forcing their agenda on the rest of society...It's getting to a point where pretty soon they are going to loose any support I had for them...Get over it and worry about the bigger issues...

The WWE should also impose a dress code on its fans. 90% of them wear sleeveless shirts with the Confederate flag.

I'm sick of these ****** groups, screaming and crying that someone calls them what they are, *******. If these S*** dont want to be called HOMO or ****** or QUEER, then they can make a choice to not be so, just like they made a choice the first time they decided to SU54 another guys rod. These filthy freaks, surely the scourge of our society, scream and cry and attempt to infringe upon the first amendment rights of everyone, while at the same time demanding minority rights for their filthy immoral lifestyle under the very same Constitution. HEY ALL QUEERS, you cant have it both ways. CM Punk was excercizing his right of Free Speech, pure and simple, and should be applauded for so doing. When this country wakes the hell up and realizes what a detriment to our country ******RY really is, all this crap will die a quick death. There is no lower form of life on earth or anywhere else than a GD QUEER.

With that legendary mustache, who cares how many people he calls a homo. I guess I just don't care about the relevance of this post. Who cares if he calls someone a homo! Doesn't make him homophobic, it makes him a man who called someone else a 'homo'.

Why are the wrestling fans still mad at TMZ? CM Punk or Phil Brooks or whatever he calls himself said he was in the wrong and TMZ was right to post the video. Are these comments typical of the WWE Universe? What would CM Punk say if he read some of these comments? He doesn't condone this type of behavior so why are you hurting the gays and lesbians with thi*****e speech?

It's not wholling the Gay and lesbian community, just a small minority of them who get butthurt, most gays would have found it funny

Animal House--remember?

Yes, he's playing a character, and I doubt CM Punk is a homophobe himself, but judging by a lot of the comments right here, it was clearly not the right place to say such a thing.

CM Punk admitted it was wrong in what came off as a very sincere apology and praised TMZ for showing the video. No need to defend his use of that word. Just commend his ability to own up to it.

The gay dictatorship is being imposed all over the world, with homossexuals using their positions of power in the media to impose their views at the majority of the population. Its a great brainwash of the general public. You all can see that only GLAAD has his opinion publicized at TMZ. Why not Exodus International or a Christian Group?

Quit whinning everytime someone says homo or whatever you're not special. Maybe this is why people have a problem with gay people all they wanna do is play the victim.

And Dr Obvious is needed again Wrestlers play fictional characters. Punk is a fictional "bad guy" so demanding an apology makes as much sense as suing Daffy Duck for assault
