OpposingViews.com is running an article written by GLAAD that is in response to CM Punk's use of the word "homo" towards a fan at a WWE Raw live event in Adelaide, Australia yesterday (click here to watch footage of Punk's outburst).
According to the article, GLAAD is in negotiations with WWE to "provide trainings" to on-camera talent, "including the wrestlers themselves." They also mention the training they provided to members of the WWE editorial staff and writing team back in May.
An unnamed WWE spokesperson told GLAAD that CM Punk is leaving the company and will no longer be a member of their roster as of July 18th. They said, "this departure is not part of a storyline. He is contractually leaving the organization." The WWE spokesperson also assured GLAAD by saying: "We are taking this very seriously."

Richard Reacts: Remember when CM Punk said "I'm in full, "what are they going to do, fire me?" mode." on Twitter last week? Well, he may have done more than just post a Tweet that preceded one of the best promos in WWE history. While WWE officials were preparing for him to leave, they were still in negotiations with Punk as of this weekend. Following Punk's outburst yesterday it looks like WWE has ended those negotiations. He undoubtedly has a ton of backstage heat on him as the company is very embarrassed over this latest incident.
