Last updated

WWE Hall of Famer John Bradshaw Layfield (JBL) recently took the social media to discuss the controversy involving John Cena and the promotion of his new film in China.

Cena appeared in China as part of promotion for his new film, Fast & Furious 9. The sure-fire WWE Hall of Famer himself referred to Taiwan as a country during the interview, causing Chinese outlets and media demanding that he apologise for the incident.

John Cena would in fact release an apology video, speaking in Mandarin, clearing up the situation.

‘Hi China, I’m John Cena. I’m in the middle of Fast & Furious 9 promotions. I’m doing a lot of interviews. I made a mistake in one of my interviews,’ Cena said [h/t/SCMP]. ‘Everyone was asking me if I could use Chinese’¦ the staff [of the movie] gave me a lot of information, so there was a lot of interviews and information.”

‘I made one mistake, I have to say something very, very, important now. I love and respect China and Chinese people. I’m very, very sorry about my mistake. I apologize, I’m very sorry. You must understand that I really love, really respect China and the Chinese people. My apologies. See you’ John Cena concluded.

Reacting to the backlash that Cena has received, JBL would praise the multiple time WWE Champion. “John Cena has granted over 600 Make a Wishes-a record. Supported cancer research, rise above hate campaign, a million of his own dollars for racial equality.”

“He has fought tirelessly for equality” JBL continued. “An incredible track record of making the world better. I’ll stand with this guy” the former World Heavyweight Champion concluded.
