Nash Carter apologizes for Hitler Nazi salute photo
Zachary Green, better known as Nash Carter from the MSK tag team in NXT, issued a statement apologizing for the Nazi photo which his wife published on social media.
In early April after MSK won the NXT Tag Team titles, Kimber Lee posted on Twitter accusing her husband of domestic violence and then posted a photo of him as Adolf Hitler, doing the Nazi salute. The picture eventually got him fired from WWE.
“No words can truly describe how ashamed and apologetic I am for my conduct in the photograph. There is no excuse for such behavior and I take full responsibility for my actions and ask for forgiveness,” Green wrote.
“This picture was taken in 2015, a time where I was uneducated on the topic and therefore didn’t understand the magnitude of how hurtful it was.”
He described how in 2020, someone was trying to extort him by threatening to post it on social media and he sent it to his wife to discuss the situation.
“Apparently, she kept it and then decided in retaliation for the filing of the divorce to post it to social media. Regardless how the photograph came to light, there is still no excuse for my actions,” he continued.
His statement continued, “Over the past month I have taken time to reflect on my conduct to which I express my utmost remorse and regret. I have spent time off social media to refresh and re-educate myself about of the horrors of the Holocaust. I truly do hope that this situation will teach and bring awareness to the horrific tragedy that took place so that something like this will never happen again. I can assure you that this is not who I am or what I represent as a human being, and I feel it is never too late to educate and better yourself.”
