This is just as bad as when WWE went PG, things are going to be cornier once again, and a lot of stuff that had been done lately that suited TV 14 more than anything, now cant be said and done. Pretty ridiculous.
The Gay and Lesbian Anti-Defamation Defense League issued a statement announcing that WWE will be working with GLAAD to create and promote an anti-bullying initiative and also offered GLAAD the opportunity to conduct trainings for their staff of writers and editors. The issue came up after the John Cena used gay remark towards The Rock and The Miz on RAW, something that GLAAD wasn’t glad about. “We reached out to WWE Incorporated, which responded swiftly and positively,” said the statement. “The incidents were particularly troubling because WWE recently began promoting itself as PG-rated entertainment marketed primarily towards adolescent males,” the statement continued. “And there was wrestling superstar John Cena performing what amounted to scripted homophobic bullying of other wrestlers on a nationally broadcast show for kids.” WWE assured GLAAD that such incidents won’t happen again and issued an apology. “WWE takes this issue very seriously, and has already spoken with our talent about these incidents. We are taking steps and working with GLAAD to ensure that our fans know that WWE is against bullying or discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. We strongly value our fans in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, and apologize to them for these incidents.”

Oh look, another one of these threads. I think this is the third one regarding GLAAD and WWE.
