Former NXT talent Stallion Rogers (aka Cameron Rogers, fka Curt Stallion) has taken to social media to issue a statement, apologizing for past transphobic comments.
In June 2020, Rogers made a number of transphobic comments on the Double K Show, including referring to transgender men as “purple haired chicks who call themselves dudes”, and discussing a #SpeakingOut accusation.
The episode has been since been pulled, however clips of Rogers’ comments have been doing the rounds on social media recently:

Rogers has now taken to Twitter with a video, addressing his comments. Rogers issued the following statement:
“Hi, my name is Cameron Rogers, I wrestle as Stallion Rogers, formerly known as Curt Stallion. It’s been brought to my attention that at some point in the past, I said some really stupid transphobic shit on a podcast that I never should have said. I’ve taken a few days to address the issue at hand because I needed to really step back and reflect on myself to make sure that this wouldn’t be some PR stunt to save my career or whatever because that’s not what this is about, nor has it ever been. I am disgusted with the way I’ve made people feel with the things that I’ve said.
“I’ve never wanted to be that guy, nor do I ever want to be. With that said, I sincerely apologize to anybody whose feelings were hurt by the things that I’ve said or anything I’ve done in the past, recorded or not. I would like to grow from this and move on. Hopefully, we can do that together. With that said, any future potential bookings that I may receive for the rest of 2021, I will be donating a percentage of that to the National Center for Trans Equality. Thank you all very much and have a wonderful rest of your week.”
