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."

Lampanelli sums up the reason why she feels the gays love her: “Gay people hate themselves as much as I hate myself — since we’re both abominations against God and man — so I insult them and they give me money. It’s the circle of life. Plus, I’m a living fulfillment of gay’s men’s fantasies: I get paid to say whatever I want, I bang black men and my clothes look fantastic.”

Enough said by the FOS large assed not funny WF!!! Even she knows where she and her friends at GlAAD stand with GOD!

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.

Seriously. He is a bad guy in Wrestling that is supposed to yell insults to the crowd. What groups of people could he insult that he wouldn't later have to apologize for?

ANSWER: Southerners, Christians, middle aged white men or any minority group that the insulter happens to be a member of.

These are the asinine PC rules that we live with today. I wish someone would put out a newsletter because the rules change so frequently.

WWE should let him go. When I used to watch he was always talking about how proud he was to be straight and if you didn't live the straight lifestyle you were ruining your life.

Straight Edge 4 Life.

@ Al Issacs. You can't be this unintelligent or clueless can you? CM Punk talks about living the straight edge lifestyle all the time on the show. Not being straight. It amazes me how moronic some people can be and how they speak without having any knowledge or gather enough brain cells to be believable. Al Issacs, did your parents have any children that lived?
