Protests in Charlottesville, Virginia have caused a lot of uproar in the past 36 hours, especially in the United States. The severity of the issue has led to a lot of people voicing their opinions on the matter on Twitter.
Wrestlers weren’t immune to commenting their thoughts as well, particularly Kevin Owens. In a Twitter statement Sunday, Owens said “What happened is beyond disgusting and sickening. Racism and bigotry is wrong. That’s all there is to it.”
Owens later said that “All I can say is that my wife and I will do all we can to ensure that our children are part of the solution and not the problem.”
The former Universal, Intercontinental, and U.S. champion ended the statement with “Let’s not be pieces of shit to each other. Good luck.”
