Pro wrestler Scorpio Sky loves to tweet 'faggot,' knows it's offensive

New, 6 comments

You've probably never heard of professional wrestler Scorpio Sky. He's had short stints in the NWA, WWE and TNA, but for the most part he's like a third-string wide receiver trying to find a home. But just a day after publishing our list of 14 athletes who've made anti-gay tweets this year, Scorpio Sky increases the list by one...

But this is nothing new for Mr. Sky. Notice the tag on this one: May 2011. He's been at this for a while...

What's particularly galling about his use of the word is that he knows that "of course it's offensive." But that doesn't stop him...

Notice in that previous one, he won't even say "nigger." He calls it the "N word." But "faggot" -- No problem.

MicahNR, whom Scorpio interacted with above, reached out to us and told us, "I contacted several companies who employ him and only got a response from Lucha VaVoom, where they agreed with me and contacted the actor."

He does eventually give an "if you're offended" non-apology, while saying he's not going to stop.

Also interesting on that one is that he draws a distinction between calling a faggot a "faggot" and calling a normal person a "faggot."

You can reach Mr. Sky and his 4,000 followers on Twitter.
