Wrestler CM Punk: ‘I Don’t Think Chris Brown Has Paid for What He’s Done’
“I’m not here to start controversy, or to gain publicity, or anything like that,” pro wrestler CM Punk said in the clip (could’ve fooled us). “And now that he’s thrown accusations my way of using steroids, I feel the need to reply.” And reply he did.
Some background: On Sunday night (Feb. 19), CM Punk tweeted, “I would like @chrisbrown fight somebody that can defend themselves. Me curb stomping that turd would be a #wrestlemania moment.”
When Brown saw the tweet he lashed out. Though the message has since been deleted, Brown wrote, “@CMpunk needs more followers. He’s such a leader! Not to mention the roids hes on has made it utterly impossible for him pleasure a women [sic].” This is the part that ticked CM Punk off.
“I’m a lifelong, proud, drug-free straight edge individual,” CM Punk said, “so Chris and I come from two completely different worlds.” What are you implying, CM Punk?
“I don’t hit women.” Oh boy. “You just don’t hit women, period,” CM Punk said. “In my world, women are to be revered and respected. I firmly believe that in this life there are consequences and repercussions for people’s actions,” he ranted on. “I don’t think Chris has paid for what he’s done.”
“Picking up trash on the side of a highway does not make amends for repeatedly striking a woman in the face and sending her to a hospital,” he said, growing visibly heated. “So Chris wants to throw stones my way now? I say, that’s fine. But put some gloves on and get in the ring.”
“I will make you feel as weak and as powerless and as scared and alone as any woman who has had the misfortune of knowing such a scared, cowardly little boy such as yourself.” Them’s fightin’ words! “All proceeds can go to a women’s shelter of my choosing, if you want to pick up more trash on the side of a highway to make some amends, that’s fine. Maybe you should donate some more time, telling kids that exactly what you did isn’t right.”
CM Punk recognizes that this may all be a pipe dream, however. “I’m also a realist,” he grumbled, “and I know none of these things will happen because Chris Brown isn’t a man. And that’s fine.” Daaaaaaaayum!
“But I know that someday, somehow, somewhere, somebody will put Chris Brown exactly where he belongs, and it honestly doesn’t have to be me,” CM Punk said, calming down. “I would just really like it to be.”
As righteous as CM Punk’s arguments are, his timing is awfully convenient for someone who claims to not want publicity. Here’s hoping Breezy takes the extremely high road here and doesn’t fight CM Punk. Either way he’ll get a nose bleed, but one will come with a lot better PR.
