CM Punk made a statement about people who remain silent during the Black Lives Matter movement. A focus was pointed toward AJ Styles and then things snowballed from there.
The Times Of India asked AJ Styles about CM Punk’s comments on Twitter. Styles didn’t trash CM Punk, necessarily. He also didn’t address the Black Lives Matter movement. Instead, he took the opportunity to say he won’t respond to someone he doesn’t respect.
“I will not react at all coming from a guy like that [who] I don’t respect anyway. It doesn’t really matter. Look, my job as a performer is to perform and get [fans’] minds off all the things that have happened throughout the world. I’m not going to react to people saying ridiculous and stupid things.”
AJ Styles didn’t address the situation head-on, but it is pretty clear what he thinks about CM Punk.
His job is to perform and create an opportunity to forget about life’s problems. He’s not commenting on the situation, especially things he finds “ridiculous and stupid.”
