WWE stars Tye Dillinger and current Cruiserweight Champion Cedric Alexander both took to Twitter this week to apologize for old tweets that were recently uncovered.
Both Dillinger and Alexander wrote tweets joking about rape.
Dillinger in 2011 tweeted: “Its not rape if they’re sleeping.”
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.

In 2012, Alexander wrote: “Its not rape if you yell SURPRISE!”
Six years ago I found "humor" in bad jokes. At the time it was a harmless joke between friends. In those 6 years I've become a father, husband & grown into a much different man. I have offended and hurt many with my past and for that I am deeply sorry & apologize for my actions
