According to The Bleacher Report however, Mitrione now says he’s sorry. Really? How does one come back from that? “Freak”, “sociopathic?” Seriously, to undo that kind of transphobic rant, we’d need to see a mountain of retribution.
So what was Mitrione’s retribution? This: “I spoke freely and I made a mess. I made a fool of myself. I spoke really poorly and I had to answer for that.”
Now with his suspension over, he’s free to make money again, and has a match coming up soon. This don’t look like no mountain to me.
Fallon Fox has sort of accepted the apology: “He made little mention of transsexual women in his apology. However, he did apologize for his words. So, it’s a very good start. Apology accepted, Matt.”
If Fox has moved on, I suppose that is what we’ll have to do here.
