Prior to last week’s tour of India, WWE apologized for a segment they did several years ago with Kurt Angle where he blew his nose with the Indian flag. WWE international president Gerrit Meier issued this statement:
”This case is about 20-years-ago and we did not deliberately do that. We have great respect for the country.”
"We are sorry that it happened, but we had no intention of doing it . India is a reputable country and we apologize for this.”
Web India 123 mentioned WWE taking disciplinary actions against Big Show and Chris Jericho for insulting the flags of Russia and Brazil respectively.
We found the Angle segment on YouTube and have embedded it below:
