— In response to the growing story about his past remarks that were primarily homophobic and racist in nature, Lars Sullivan released the following statement:
“There is no excuse for the inappropriate remarks that I made years ago. They do not reflect my personal beliefs nor who I am today, and I apologize to anyone I offended.”
— As noted, WWE officials are fully aware of both the story and Sullivan’s comments in the past but are reportedly not going to be taking any action at this time. A report online even suggested that the company is simply hoping the situation blows over and goes away.
