JBL comments on John Cena/Taiwan controversy

May 26, 2021 - by Marc Middleton

WWE Hall of Famer JBL took to Twitter on Tuesday with a show of support for John Cena.

As noted, Cena received backlash from fans in China after referring to Taiwan as its own country while doing media for the Fast 9 movie. Fans in mainland China were reportedly outraged at Cena’s comments as Beijing insists that the self-ruled Taiwan is an indispensable part of the country, not on its own.

“@JohnCena has granted over 600 Make a Wishes-a record. Supported cancer research, rise above hate campaign, a million of his own dollars for racial equality. He has fought tirelessly for equality. An incredible track record of making the world better. I’ll stand with this guy,” JBL wrote.
