• John Cena Apologizes To China For Calling Taiwan A Country

While promoting his upcoming movie Fast & Furious 9, WWE Legend John Cena called Taiwan a country and this angered his Chinese fanbase.

Cena said Taiwan is the “first country” to watch Fast & Furious 9. The video of him saying this went viral with 3 million views on Weibo.

Cena then posted a video on the Sina Weibo platform to apologize to his Chinese fans, but didn’t directly mention calling Taiwan a country.

Here’s what Cena said in Mandarin:

“Hi China, I’m John Cena. I’m in the middle of Fast & Furious 9 promotions. I’m doing a lot of interviews. I made a mistake in one of my interviews.

Everyone was asking me if I could use Chinese…the staff gave me a lot of information, so there was a lot of interviews and information.

I made one mistake. I have to say something very, very, important now. I love and respect China and Chinese people. I’m very, very sorry about my mistake. I apologize, I’m very sorry.

You must understand that I really love, really respect China and the Chinese people. My apologies. See you.”

Some Chinese fans were still upset at Cena and one fan commented the following:

“Please say in Chinese that Taiwan is part of China. Otherwise, we won’t accept it. Then you should say Taiwan is China’s!”

Fast & Furious 9 will be released in the United States next month.
