AJ Styles refuses to react to CM Punk calling him out for silence on racial issues, say he doesn’t respect him

During his appearance on WWE Backstage last week, CM Punk gave his thoughts on the death of George Floyd and the racial issues in America. For more on that, click here.

He also followed up in a tweet by writing the following:

“Lotta people snitching on themselves. When people tell you who they are, believe it. Might be unfortunate and disappointing if you’re a fan of that person, or if it’s your grandmother, but fuck ‘em. Good bye! (I yield my time, f**k you.)”

This led to a fan stating that AJ Styles had not commented on the racial issues in America, but rather is promoting his work in WWE and MIXER streams. The former WWE Champion allegedly responded in a deleted tweet with, “Well. Come on. That one has been obvious for years.”

This is something that was brought up while Styles was doing an interview with The Times Of India. Despite being asked about, Styles refused to comment on it because he will not react to someone he doesn’t any have respect for.

“I will not react at all coming from a guy that I don’t [have] any respect [for] anyway. It doesn’t really matter. Look, my job as a performer is to perform and get the mind off all the things that have happened throughout the world. I am not going to react to people saying ridiculous and stupid things.”

Styles also talked about facing Daniel Bryan in the tournament finals to crown a new Intercontinental Champion on Friday’s episode of SmackDown and more. You can check out the full interview here.
