WWE Breaking News: More Fallout from the Michael Cole Gay Slur on Twitter

Angel CervantesContributor IIIMarch 29, 2011

"How can ANYONE at WWE say anything derogatory about gay people?? Look at what they do and have been doing for a living for years! Big muscles, small tights rolling around! I'm just saying, honey. People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones!" The quote comes from PGW founder and CEO Francis Minks. 

The comments come after Cole called Josh Matthews an offensive term for homosexuals over the weekend on Twitter. 

TMZ is reporting that the PGW, or the Pro Gay Wrestling Federation are furious at the comments made by Cole.

Also chiming in was the PGW Champion, The Gay Avenger. The Avenger claimed he was upset by Cole's "intolerant and insensitive" comments. The PGW Champ also insisted that the word encourages, "a hostile bullying environment."

Cole has issued an apology, and WWE says Cole will take part in a GLAAD training session in an effort to educate him about discrimination.
