Former WWE Superstar Hornswoggle was one of the mainstays of WWE television during the mid to late 2000s. He was used largely used as a comedy act. He also defended Jerry Jones recently despite Jones using a slur for little person, a demographic that Swoggle proudly represents.
While speaking to TMZ Sports, Hornswoggle stated that Jerry Jones should not have said he was sorry for using the m-word earlier this week. This is because he doesn’t find the term to be offensive.
The former WWE Superstar explained his seasoning just a day after the Dallas Cowboys owner used the word while making a joke about one of his former employees who had passed away in May.
In his joke about Larry Lacewell, Jones said he wanted to “get me somebody, a midget” to dress up like Dallas’ former Director of College and Pro Scouting and stand next to him at practices.
“You didn’t need to apologize to me, Jerry Jones. I’m a fan of yours for using the word because I use the word. Because I’m OK, and I don’t take myself too seriously.”
“”He’s not using it in a derogatory way. That’s my thing. He’s not making fun of the community with how he’s using it.”
“If you get offended by something like that, you’re taking yourself way too seriously. We’re all human. We all bleed the same blood. It’s just ridiculous to me.”
“It’s absolutely ridiculous.”
It is good to see that Hornswoggle takes it all in good humor and was not offended by the word. Regardless, some people will always be offended and that’s never changing.
