WWE commentator Michael Cole calls a colleague 'faggot' on Twitter

Just a week after the WWE claimed a new commitment to stop homophobia and bullying in the pro wrestling organization, one of their commentators Tweeted that another WWE commentator is a "faggot." Michael Cole sent the jab at Josh Matthews because, you know, that's the worst thing you can call someone in the WWE. Still.

Cole and the WWE have released the requisite apology, saying it was not "meant as it was taken." Right. I'm sure he meant to say, "You are so strong and amazing, an inspiration to every American." I'm sure that's what he meant by calling the guy a "faggot."

Last week GLAAD had highly publicized a new partnership with the WWE; So far it's not going as planned, but it is going as expected. The WWE failed to post anything about their fight against homophobia, including the statement they released on the subject, anywhere on their Web site. Now this (which they have again failed to acknowledge on their site). Looks like that bridge is still for sale...
