WWE Superstar Darren Young came out of the closet to one of the paparazzi at LAX. The guy asked Darren if a gay wrestler could make it in the WWE, and he said, quote, "Absolutely, look at me. I'm a WWE superstar and to be honest with you, I'll tell you right now, I'm gay. And I'm happy. I'm very happy." The WWE and several of its wrestlers have since issued statements of support.
WWE's official statement:
"WWE is proud of Darren Young for being open about his sexuality, and we will continue to support him as a WWE Superstar. Today, in fact, Darren will be participating in one of our Be A Star anti-bullying rallies in Los Angeles to teach children how to create positive environments for everyone regardless of age, race, religion or sexual orientation."
