Jay Briscoe To Make Public Apology & Donate ROH Pay Over Anti-Gay Marriage Remarks



jay-briscoe

As PWMania.com previously reported, Ring of Honor wrestler Jay Briscoe made some very controversial comments about gay marriage being legalized in the state of Delaware.

Following an initial statement this morning that simply said Briscoe’s thoughts did not reflect those of Ring of Honor’s, ROH has issued the following second statement:

Jay Briscoe would like to again express his sincerest apologies and regrets to all, especially his young fans, for his recent hateful Twitter comment. Ring of Honor has insisted that Jay also make a public apology at the Ring of Honor event this Saturday night. Jay will address the public during the event.

In addition to this apology, Ring of Honor and Jay have agreed that he will donate his full pay from the next two Ring of Honor events to the Partners Against Hate charitable organization. Partners Against Hate was created to help prevent, deter, and reduce juvenile hate-related behavior.

ROH’s Saturday show will be from Belle Vernon, Pennsylvania.

    Hahaha, so instead of murdering a homosexual, like he said he’d do yesterday, Jay Briscoe is just going to give them money. What a pushover.

  • D-Mac

    Find it hard to believe he’s gonna make a 180 like that after what he said, ROH probably told him either he does this or he’s gone
