SmackDown Live’s “Perfect Ten” Tye Dillinger took to Twitter on Tuesday to issue an apology for his old tweets that were brought up by one of his fans
I have no excuse for my old tweets. I was a different person six years ago, and I’m beyond ashamed at what I considered “humor” . I’m so damn embarrassed and I’m truly sorry to anyone I’ve offended.

Dillinger’s apologies received some positive as well as negative responses on Twitter. One such positive response is as follows:
Truly appreciate your apology. As a victim, it's extremely hard to read about it. When I see those type of jokes no matter how old they are, it makes me feel low. I hope that this can stay in the past, as I am a fan of your work.

In the meantime, WWE Cruiserweight Champion Cedric Alexander has deleted all of his tweets after a fan dug up a few things that the 205 Live Superstar had said several years back. It is to be noted that Cedric’s deleted tweets also revolved around rape.
