The Mirror has published an article on WWE Champion CM Punk’s “chilling response” to a British fan who disagreed with his views on gay marriage on Monday.

Expressing his disapproval with Amendment 1 Monday morning on Twitter, Punk wrote a message in support of gay marriage being legalized in the state of North Carolina. A Twitter user hailing from Walsall disagreed, writing to the WWE Superstar, “Man was meant for woman, and even the thought of homo’s make me sick.”

Punk posted the message and then wrote “Kill yourself. He also advised another fan who disagreed with him to “drink bleach.”

The newspaper also acknowledged WWE’s affiliation with The Creative Coalition to promote the anti-bullying campaign ‘be a STAR,’ which Punk has represented.

Responding to a user that told Punk to ‘be a STAR’ after telling the British fan to kill himself, he wrote, “hey moron, don’t try to hide behind the be a star campaign. I am a star. I’m fighting bigots here. Zero tolerance.”

The Mirror says his beliefs contrast a homophobic slur he hurled at a fan last July at a WWE live event in Adelaide, Australia. Enclosed in the article is footage of Punk engaging in a verbal altercation with a fan and telling him that he has a “homo” haircut.

CM Punk took to Twitter to apologize for telling a fan to kill themselves after they posted a homophobic message. Punk posted:

I was pretty worked up today. The amendment 1 situation had me all wound up. I stand by my thoughts on gay marriage 100%. How I defended...

That stance was 100% wrong. I admit it. You can't stoop to others levels. Sometimes I fight fire with fire and it isn't ways the best way.

To @ezeekay: I apologize. I don't want you to kill yourself. I want you to better yourself. Just as I want to better myself.

I'll start by being the better man and once again, apologize for my harsh reaction to your opinion of homosexuals making you "sick" @ezeekay

Sorry y'all. If I let anybody down, I apologize. I'll make it up to ya and move forward with a better understanding of others feelings.#pma.

------------------------------------------------------

I think Punk is digging himself a very big hole at the moment on Twitter as yesterday he also gave a huge spoiler to RAW when he tweeted a picture of someone that was due to appear on the show.
I expect him to drop the belt to DB at Over the Limit in the coming weeks.

Its always going to be a testy subject and like Punk said he was fighting fire with fire. I can see the management having a sit down chat with him.

What an idiot! Whilst the guy he directed it at is a bigot and a moron Punk is even worse!

After being held back he has received a major push and been WWE champion for over half a year! They have given him a push on par with the likes Cena, Orton etc. get.

The guy needs to learn when to keep his mouth shut otherwise he will soon be pushed back down to where he was this time last year which is a complete waste of time, money and more importantly it is a waste of him and his talent.

Think the Mirror also mentioned the homophobic rant he went on in Australia!

I know CM Punk has been here for a while, and this is not an excuse, just a simple observation, but is this the first signs of the danger of pushing Indy guys to the top? Watch indy matches with Punk, Danielson, etc, and you see them interacting with the crowd, sometime to the extremes, but that's fine there as the indy fans dish out as good as they get and if someone gets offended, only 100 or so people saw the event. Now you're getting guys with the indy mind-set on a podium in front of millions, and without the full WWE training that they would have gotten by coming up through WWE developmental where they're taught to cut promos to the book and only say certain stuff, which although is often more bland, does not bring risks like this.

He was only defending his opinion, all be it in strong way, but is that any worse than the guys homophobic views?

"Oh, man and man is bad, man and woman is good.....what? kill myself?, im really offended!!!!"

Behave!

It always makes me think of Blades of Glory when the hot dog vendor has 2 sausages in a bun.

Gays are cool with me. Hell, Dicey Reilly is gay and he's my favourite person on this board.

Guy love,
That's all it is,
Guy love,
He's mine, I'm his,
There's nothing gay about it in our eyes.

I'm sure Punk would look at this article and see the error of his ways.

Thats why I no longer use social network sites...far too many morons around who would likely cause me to lose my rag like Punk did. Can completely understand his reaction, though I don't condone it.

While Joe Public can get away with it, you would think he'd know people in his position can't afford to be seen doing stuff like that.

Completely agree there's nothing wrong with a little "bromance". Wink

Hello folks , long time reader etc.

My admiration for Punk has increased after reading this. Ok the killing yourself bit is probably a bit ott. At least he is brave, or perhaps keyboard twitchy enough to come out with a view which could make him unpopular with his target audience but kudos to him.

I qualify this obviously with the disclaimer about being married to a woman.

Also what are the rules regarding the smiley faces can you be as liberal in their use as punks views on gay marriage?

He has appologised profusely for this now. Saying he still maintains his views on gay marriage but expressed them really wrongly. He has appologised to the individual and says he hope both of them can strive to become better people.

Until 'that' tweet he had put a lot of good points across, as pscott said, my admiration for Punk increased while reading his comments on the matter. The kill yourself comment was OTT, but he has since apologised and whether or not he was told to he sounded genuine and didn't try to excuse what he said.

Pscott, there isn't an exact limit on smiley us but we ask that you do not use them excessively.

Dont have a problem with his tweet to be honest may have been excessive but its his opinion and was defending it. He has apologised for it now so even more kudos.

For me CM punk's stock has only increased and im sure management in WWE wouldnt be bothered
