AEW star Austin Gunn has taken to social media to apologize for using the N-word in several tweets from 2013 when he was a 17-year-old student.
Gunn, who has also made reference to a number of sensitivity meetings during his time at college and with AEW, posted the below apology.
“Extremely insensitive tweets/replies I made when I was 17 years old in 2013 have been brought to my attention. I don’t have the words to describe how I’m feeling right now. There is no excusive for it, and I am deeply sorry.
“AEW regularly provides excellent sensitivity programs that I have attended multiple times. I want to continue to learn from my mistakes, improve my view on the world, and strive to be a person my parents would be proud of. I was not raised this way, I do not condone this behavior or the use of these words, and I am extremely sorry. Thank you for reading this.”
