Daivari who resurfaced at the Greatest Royal Rumble, has commented after receiving death threats due to his return. Below are his comments:
"During an appearance this past Friday, I portrayed a fictional character and played the role of the antagonist, no different than what other actors would do in a movie or TV show," Daivari wrote. "That character does not reflect my personal views and I apologize to anyone who may have been offended by the skit. I have a great respect for the people of Iran and I am very proud of my Iranian heritage. Thank you."
Daivari then responded to someone who said he shouldn't have needed to apologize, "Unfortunately some people took offense to this despite it being pure entertainment. Some threats were made against my life. I wanted to put this statement out to clarify where I as a person stand compared to my t.v. character."
