Chris Jericho Issues Statement On New York Altercation

As CJ reported yesterday, Chris Jericho was in New York City and signed some autographs and pictures as he had just come out of a David Z tribute show. After he refused a few people as he had to leave the area, that's when one fan blew up and started yelling at him triggering his profanity-laced response.

Jericho had the following comments to make afterwards:

“David Z was a good friend of mine and I was mentally and emotionally shattered after paying tribute to him and essentially saying goodbye to him Friday night. I was not in a good state of mind at that time and instead of ignoring a pushy (aka rude) fan which is what I would usually do, I snapped. My apologies to all involved and God bless David Z.”
