WWE star Chris Jericho relishes use of gay slur

WWE star Chris Jericho is in some hot water after using some foolish language about Muslims and gays. Of course, he tossed around "fag." Is this a growing trend? What's discouraging is that he acknowledges that cameras are there and even jokes about the TMZ headline he'll make. He's proud of it. His comment after the outburst:

After seeing the video I realize some inappropriate comments were made and I apologize if I offended anybody. Just know that everyone on stage was having a blast and we all shared a drink and a laugh after! The good news is I got my wish of being posted on TMZ.

I put that through the "apology translator." The translation and video after the jump.

I'm so happy I made those anti-muslim, homophobic comments. And everyone else liked it too, except those pesky fags and towelheads. So screw 'em! I got my name out there, so it's all good!

No matter how you look at the original comment, GLAAD got it right.
