Last night on Twitter, John Bradshaw Layfield was celebrating his birthday and watching the Dallas Cowboys vs. New Orleans Saints football game when he decided to get on social media and take aim at Cody Rhodes. During his Twitter rant, JBL called Cody "a tool" and said he'd "kill" Cody. Some tweets have been deleted, but you can view them here.
This morning, JBL apologized for his comments and admitted he had a few too many to drink.
Was having fun with Cody last night and said I’d kill Cody Rhodes, I obviously didn’t mean that literally. It was a very poor choice of words, I go way back with him and his family and I just was talking smack in a pro wrestling sense. I apologize for that poor choice of words.— John Layfield (@JCLayfield) November 30, 2018

I go way back with Dusty, tagged with Murdoch/Dusty’s old partner. I didn’t mean disrespect to Dusty. It’s what happens when elation from a Cowboys win, my birthday, talking smack and booze mix. https://t.co/SruBKEsTko— John Layfield (@JCLayfield) November 30, 2018
Cody eluded to JBL possibly having too much to drink as the reason for the rant. He also RT'd the comment "Old people shouldn’t have twitter." He has yet to comment on JBL's apology.
