Bully Ray goes the extra mile after making gay slurs to fan in Chicago at TNA Impact show

Bully Ray was caught making gay slurs to a fan at an episode of TNA Impact Wrestling in Chicago, Illinois, recently. He apologized on Twitter, but it seemed impersonal and removed. Now, he's gone the extra mile.

Just one week ago, Bully Ray landed himself in hot water with TNA management when he was caught using a gay slur to a fan in Chicago, Illinois, during a live episode of Impact Wrestling. Ray was quoted as calling the fan a "faggot," a "queer," and making sure to point out that he was punking said fan in front of his daughter.

Needless to say, it didn't go over well.

TNA President Dixie Carter tweeted about the subject before much was known on the situation, saying it was unacceptable and would not be tolerated. Ray quickly followed with an apology on his Twitter, though it felt a tad cold and distant, far too removed for what it was he said and did.

Now, though, he's gone the extra mile to make up for it. From his Twitter:

That's more like it.

Whether or not you agree with the politics of it, what Ray did was wrong and socially unacceptable. It's nice to see that he was willing to do more than simply apologize through social media.

Now we can call go back to praising his heel work as President of Aces and 8s and current TNA heavyweight champion. After all, he's doing the best work of his career inside the ring.

Let's focus on that again.
