Snitsky Claims Miz Rant Was Due to His Twitter Being Hacked

Nick Paglino

Earlier tonight, we reported that former WWE star Gene Snitsky lashed out at fans on Twitter, using both homophobic slurs and curse words. Additionally, Snitsky ripped into former WWE Champion The Miz, claiming that he could "never hold his jockstrap."

In an update to this story, several readers have sent in word that Snitsky has subsequently claimed that his Twitter account was hacked, and he issued an apology to both the fans and The Miz, before deleting the Twitter account. Below is a screenshot of the Tweets, sent in by WZ reader Bob Sanders, just minutes before the account was deleted.
