Professional wrestler and actress CJ Perry, famously known as Lana during her past stint in WWE, has apologized for the comment she made to one self-described homeless person on Twitter.

I apologize if I seemed insensitive: CJ Perry

As per Wrestling Inc, it all started when a Twitter user named Adam took to the platform to make a gloomy expression, saying “Hard to keep going when you’re homeless. Everyone ignores you. Everything is a reminder of what you once had,” while replying to a now-deleted post from Perry.

“Let me clear something up about something going around about a tweet,” Perry wrote, “Most people don’t know that I was homeless 2 different times chasing big dreams. I have plenty of empathy for the homeless because I was homeless. But I was grateful because I had a phone to tweet from.”

The above tweet was then followed up with another lengthy response which included an apology.

“I understand my Eastern European upbringing and motivational speech did not resonate with many of you,” the 37-year-old stated, “As a kid and teenager, I had shoes thrown at me, I was whipped by my ballet teachers because they ‘believed in me.’

“I apologize if I seemed insensitive and caused more damage. I truly was trying to motivate in the way I know how. Which I failed and I apologize for. When people would do that to me it always helped but I see it did not help in this situation. And I am sorry for that.”

“It’s insane talking about being homeless and now starting to remember all the places I slept that I blocked out of my memory. We truly do block trauma out of our memories and brain. I can thank many ppl on Twitter from re-triggering my trauma of being homeless,” she added. [H/T Wrestling Inc]

 Perry was a manager to her husband Rusev (now Miro in All Elite Wrestling) at her time in WWE. And she was a competitor in her subsequent years with the company.
 She was the sole survivor in the Survivor Series elimination match in 2020, although she never won a championship.
