WWE Issues Statement On Darren Young Revealing He Is Gay

WWE.com has issued a statement addressing Darren Young’s announcement via TMZ.com that is gay:

On TMZ this morning, WWE Superstar Darren Young revealed to the WWE Universe that he is gay. WWE is proud of Darren Young for being open about his sexuality, and we will continue to support him as a WWE Superstar. Today, in fact, Darren will be participating in one of our Be A STAR anti-bullying rallies in Los Angeles to teach children how to create positive environments for everyone regardless of age, race, religion or sexual orientation.

As PWMania.com reported earlier, John Cena told TMZ that it’s “wonderful” that Young decided to come out publicly – saying that he’s a true professional and he has the support of WWE.

    I think its excellent what he has done. He will be a positive role model for those of a younger generation. Such campaigns like Be A Star will highlight the issue of homophobia and I’m sure Darren will do that particular aspect good. All the best.

    Not only does he have the support of the WWE, but he also has the support of his fans- old ones who have always appreciated his work, as well as new ones like myself who are in awe of not only his courage, but his strength of character and his viewpoint on the matter in general. In the end, a person’s sexuality DOESN’T matter. The PERSON does.
