Actor and WWE star John Cena was slammed online starting late Monday evening and continuing well into Tuesday morning after apologizing to communist China for calling Taiwan a “country.”

Cena called Taiwan a “country” during a promotional video for his upcoming movie “Fast & Furious 9.” In his apology, Cena said [emphasis added]:

Hi China, I’m John Cena. I’m in the middle of Fast and Furious 9 promotions. I’m doing a lot of interviews. I made a mistake in one of my interviews. Everyone was asking me if I could use Chinese – [movie] staff gave me a lot of information, so there was a lot of interviews and information.

I made one mistake. I have to say something very, very, very important now. I love and respect China and Chinese people. I’m very, very sorry about my mistake. I apologize, I apologize, I’m very sorry. You must understand that I really love, really respect China and the Chinese people. My apologies. See you.

The following are just a small sample of the types of responses that Cena received over his apology:

Josh Jordan: “China neutered John Cena for the entire world to see.”

John Cardillo: “@JohnCena is China’s b***h. Taiwan is a country.”

Andrew Egger: “Oh good, another one of these utterly embarrassing bow-and-scrape ‘please don’t stop buying our product China!’ cycles”

AG Conservative: “Pathetic, but not nearly as pathetic as the companies who make these movies bending over at every request from the CCP and then lecturing Americans about the immorality of completely average laws they don’t like in places like Georgia and Texas.”

Jack Posobiec: “This is called a kowtow. It is not something a champion would do.”

Annika H Rothstein: “Two thoughts here: 1. Taiwan is in fact a country 2. John Cena is in fact a cowardly, dictatorship-hugging piece of 💩”

Logan Dobson: “Are Hollywood types not embarrassed by this? It’s obviously embarrassing, I just wonder if folks selling out to a genocidal regime for extra box office juice have the capacity to feel that.”

Joe Walsh: “Pathetic @JohnCena . Just pathetic.”

Ian Miles Cheong: “Speaking as a Chinese person, John Cena is a coward for erasing an entire nation.”

Arthur Bloom: “They got John Cena’s balls locked in a vault in Beijing somewhere, gonna need an action movie about recovering them.”

Rebeccah Heinrichs: “There’s one in front of the camera but many more who support it. Really shameful.”

Steve Deace: “Underneath all those muscles just another mangina snowflake.”

Tim Murtaugh: “John Cena gives China the special NBA treatment.”

Jonah Goldberg: “Narrator: Taiwan is, in fact, a country.”

Rita Panahi: “Cowardly. LeBron Cena.”

Brian Kilmeade: “Pathetic….be a tough guy off camera too!!”

Mark Wallace: “Absolutely pathetic, @JohnCena . Maybe call the next film Desperate and Spineless?”

Lev Nachman: “Barbara Streisand not backing down after tweeting in support of Taiwan while John Cena sheepishly apologizes for suggesting Taiwan exists is proof Barbara is the stronger fighter.”

Dan Gainor: “. @JohnCena just turned his back on every American fan he had.”
