AJ Styles feels that it is his job to distract people from all of the chaos going on in the world and provide some entertainment and its place.
CM Punk recently singled out AJ Styles in a now-deleted tweet where he responded to a fan that said they felt the need to unfollow AJ after his lack of a response to all of the unrest concerning racial inequality in America. Punk would say, “Well come on. That one has been obvious for years.”
Right!?! Silence speaks volumes. Seeing AJ Styles promote streams and shit but couldn’t be bothered to post anything made it clear how he feels. That was a tough unfollow...— titan9 (@titan9) June 5, 2020
AJ was asked by Times of India if he wanted to respond to the former WWE champion, to which he said that he would not react to somebody he doesn't respect.
“I will not react at all coming from a guy like that I don't respect anyway. It doesn't really matter. Look, my job as a performer is to perform and get [fans’] minds off all the things that have happened throughout the world. I'm not going to react to people saying ridiculous and stupid things.”
Right now, AJ Styles is preparing to face Daniel Bryan in the finals of a tournament to crown a brand new WWE Intercontinental Champion. The finals will take place on the June 12 episode of Friday Night SmackDown.
Fightful will have live coverage of SmackDown beginning Friday at 8 p.m. Eastern.
