Nash Carter has finally spoke up.
Last month, Nash Carter, one member of the tag team MSK was released from NXT 2.0 following a litany of controversies including allegations of abuse. An image made the rounds at this time of Nash Carter posing as Adolf Hitler.
While Carter has since remained silent on the matter, he finally sent out a statement regarding the issue. Carter, in his statement, mentioned how there are no excuses for his actions, and he discussed his time away from social media.
“No words can truly describe how ashamed and apologetic I am for my conduct in the photograph. There is no excuse for such behavior and I take full responsibility for my actions and ask for forgiveness. This picture was taken in 2015, a time where I was uneducated on the topic and therefore didn’t understand the magnitude of how hurtful it was. In 2020 someone was trying to extort me by threatening to post it on social media. I sent it to my wife to discuss the situation. Apparently, she kept it and then decided in retaliation for the filing of the divorce to post it to social media. Regardless how the photograph came to light, there is still no excuse for my actions.”
“Over the past month I have taken time to reflect on my conduct to which I express my utmost remorse and regret. I have spent time off social media to refresh and re-educate myself about of the horrors of the Holocaust. I truly do hope that this situation will teach and bring awareness to the horrific tragedy that took place so that something like this will never happen again. I can assure you that this is not who I am or what I represent as a human being, and I feel it is never too late to educate and better yourself.”
“If you are ever in the Orlando/Maitland area, take some time to visit the Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center of Florida where you can learn about the history and depth of what took place. It was an incredibly eye-opening, and impactful experience that teaches the importance of this history.”Nash Carter statement
It is hard to believe anyone in the year 2015 would be unaware of the horrors of the Holocaust. Time will tell if fans will accept this apology from Carter.
