It appears that the Executive Vice President of AEW has landed himself in hot water. During the AAA TripleMania PPV, Cody had teamed with Psycho Clown and Cain Velasquez. After the match was over, Psycho Clown asked him to join in a chant which was homophobic in nature. It was not something that Cody was aware about and he joined in, something which hurt the sentiments of a large number of fans.
Cody has since apologized through AEW.
“Cody joined his teammates at AAA TripleMania for what he understood to be their post-match tradition in Mexico and was unaware of any negative connotations. Certainly the last thing Cody would want to do is to hurt or offend anyone, anywhere.”AEW’s Statement
