— WWE Champion CM Punk spoke out on the topic of same sex marriage and Amendment 1 Monday morning on Twitter. Amendment 1 is a controversial topic in North Carolina, as it will define marriage in the state constitution as between one man and one woman, and would ban any other type of “domestic legal union” such as civil unions and domestic partnerships.
Punk wrote, “Amendment 1 is ridiculous. It’s an invasion of people’s rights. North Carolina, why do you care if somebody wants to marry who they love?” Same sex marriage should be legal. The fact that it’s illegal is embarrassing.”
He continued, “Divorce rate is at least 50% between men and women, so don’t give me the values angle. Making same sex marriage illegal is the same as having segregated drinking fountains. Embarrassing. The human race is embarrassing. #evolve”
One of Punk’s Twitter followers disagreed with his beliefs, writing to the WWE Superstar, “Man was meant for woman, and even the thought of homo’s make me sick.” Punk posted his message and wrote “Kill yourself” in response.
— Natalya and Hornswoggle paid a visit to Pleasant Valley Elementary School in Greensboro, North Carolina on Monday to promote WWE’s anti-bullying initiative ‘be a STAR.’
The SmackDown Diva admitted last month on Twitter that most of the bullying she has dealt with has occurred as an adult. Offering advice to a fan who is being bullied, she wrote, “Yes I have been bullied- mostly as an adult, ironically! Stand up for yourself and kill em with kindness.”
