!! OMG, Wrestler Anthony Bowens claps back at homophobes who have told him not to talk about his sexuality. !!
On Monday, pro Wrestler Anthony Bowens published a letter in The Players Tribune to his fans and supporters. In his letter, Bowens talked about how he’d been passed-over when he tried out for WWE back in 2015. The feedback he recieved was that he ‘looked great and performed magnificently in the ring. However, when he had a mic in his hand, he lacked personality.’
Bowens says he knew he wasn’t able to project his personality because he was hiding a big part of himself.
“I think I knew the truth: As long as I was closeted as a wrestler, I wasn’t going to reach my full potential. Because I wasn’t going to be able to tap into everything that makes me me.”
His letter was lauded by fans. However, it turns out *some* fans didn’t want to know about it. Well, Bowens wasn’t having it! He took a screenshot of some of the more ignorant replies and posted a message in response, basically telling the homophobes that he wasn’t sharing his experiences for them, but speaking out more for queer youth in need of role models.
