WWE announcer Michael Cole used the sexual slur “faggot” on his official Twitter page in a response to a post by fellow broadcaster Josh Mathews.
Cole eventually deleted the post and followed up with a message that stated, “I apologize to any and all who were offended by my tweet toward young Josh Mathews. It was obviously not meant the way it was taken.”
WWE responded as well, claiming they alerted GLAAD to Cole’s tweet and addressed the situation with him. “Michael will be included in the training session being done by GLAAD.”
TMZ decided to pick up the story, and you can check out print screens of the tweets at TMZ.com.
