John Cena is usually looked upon by many as an extremely “well to do” superstar. Cena may very well to be the one to thank for helping WWE to get more children into wrestling as his image was squeaky clean at the pinnacle of his career. Now, WWE Superstar John Cena is in the news for his comments about Taiwan. Bobby Lashley Has Surprising ‘Fake’ Girlfriend.
During a recent interview to promote his upcoming movie Fast & Furious 9, he referred to Taiwan as its own country, which led to a major backlash from fans in China. Cena then posted a video on his social media to issue an apology for the same but did not directly mention the relationship between China and Taiwan.
The video stated: “Hi China, I’m John Cena. I’m in the middle of Fast & Furious 9 promotions. I’m doing a lot of interviews. I made a mistake in one of my interviews. I made one mistake. I have to say something very, very, important now. I love and respect China and Chinese people. I’m very, very sorry about my mistake. I apologize, I’m very sorry. You must understand that I really love, really respect China and the Chinese people. My apologies. See you,” said John Cena in Mandarin. (h/t SCMP)
