took to Twitter Tuesday evening to dispute online reports stating that his starring role in the WWE
Studios and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment film The Marine: Homefront
was nixed after companies were informed of his dishonorable discharge from the Marines. The claim was attributed to this article
published on Variety.com promoting his feature role in 12 Rounds: Reloaded
for WWE Studios and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
"A Bad Conduct Discharge and a Dishonorable Discharge under the Uniform Code of Military Justice are two different things," Orton wrote. "Come on you 'reporters'! Check your facts, and more importantly your sources! I was given a BCD, not a Dishonorable!! #semperfidelis."
