Famous American pro wrestler, Dylan Mark Postl who grew to fame under the name Hornswoggle during his time at the WWE has jumped to the defense of Jerry Jones after the latter used the m-word while passing a joke earlier this week.
Speaking with TMZ Sports, Hornswoggle said that he does not find the term offensive at all even though he suffers from dwarfism. He adds that Jerry Jones should not have apologized.
“You didn’t need to apologize to me, Jerry Jones. I’m a fan of yours for using the word because I use the word. Because I’m OK, and I don’t take myself too seriously. He’s not using it in a derogatory way. That’s my thing. He’s not making fun of the community with how he’s using it. If you get offended by something like that, you’re taking yourself way too seriously. We’re all human. We all bleed the same blood. It’s just ridiculous to me,” he said.
Earlier this week, Jerry Jones while passing a joke about Larry Lacewell said he wanted to “get me somebody, a m*****” to dress up like Dallas’s former Director of College and Pro Scouting and stand next to him at practices.
The largest dwarfism advocacy group in the world, Little People of America, was horrified by the remark and demanded an apology. Jones apologized shortly after that.
