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."

For people who are not familiar with the story line, CM Punk or Phil Brooks (the guy in this video) is playing a character.

He is the evil twisted villain trying to get under peoples skin, and as you can see by the reaction to this video its working perfectly. And soon he will get beat to a pulp by the super hero protector of justice - John Cena

Its how the storylines are created. In real life punk or Phil brooks is an active supporter for gay rights. If someone says the N word in a movie while acting they are not deemed racist, so please stop having double standards

but in reality No one will read my comment and will go back to screaming at each other in the comments sectiom.

Enjoy everyone!

Hey look it's TMZ trying to be the morality police again. You got to love TMZ trying to drag CM Punk through the mud. Hey all you ******** at TMZ, blow it out your ass. ******* pricks, and your selective editing... After thinking about it, thanks TMZ. You just gave the CM Punk CHARACTER more publicity. This is exactly what a heel wants. CM Punk is going to come out of this a bigger star than he was before.

One more thing, **** POLITICAL CORRECTNESS.

Harvey - you need better moderation on this site. The revolting remarks from ignorant, uneducated, despicable individuals who can hardly form a complete sentence purposely making insulting remarks have got to go. Everyone knows, the haters are latent, going out for something on the side, while they play let's pretend at home. Thank God for NY, now that we have marriage, there will be something sacred about it. Can't trust the heterosexuals, most are serial cheaters and have been divorced numerous times, some can't even count (Guliani's wife for one). Now that gay people can marry in NY, it will return respectability to the institution.

You clowns at TMZ are right. He calls someone a homo and it means he's got some crazy phobia/hatred of gay people.

Sheesh, I thought jews were touchy.

Wow these wrestling fans are worse than the Jackass fans or maybe they're one in the same. They'll defend their hero's idiot behavior up until the end.
