In response to passage of a gay marriage law in Delaware, professional wrestler Jay Briscoe, the current Ring of Honor World Champion, threatened violence.

"The Delaware Senate passed a bill yesterday that allows same sex couple to get marriage," Briscoe tweeted. "If that makes you happy, then congratulations!!!!!"

"... try to teach my kids that there's nothing wrong with that and I'll fucking shoot you."

Briscoe's Twitter account (jaybriscoe84) has since been deleted.

According to SB Nation's Cageside Seats, Briscoe tweeted in 2011: "Damn there's a lot of fags in New York today #WhatTheFuck."

Ring of Honor issued an apology on behalf of the wrestler and promised that Briscoe would make a similar apology on Saturday.

"Jay Briscoe would like to again express his sincerest apologies and regrets to all, especially his young fans, for his recent hateful Twitter comment. Ring of Honor has insisted that Jay also make a public apology at the Ring of Honor event this Saturday night. Jay will address the public during the event."

"In addition to this apology, Ring of Honor and Jay have agreed that he will donate his full pay from the next two Ring of Honor events to the Partners Against Hate charitable organization. Partners Against Hate was created to help prevent, deter, and reduce juvenile hate-related behavior."
