Curt Stallion issues a statement on past comments.
In June 2020, Curt Stallion appeared on the Double K Show where he made transphobic comments saying, "purple haired chicks who call themselves dudes" and seemingly admitted that he sexually assaulted a man who accused him of"touching him inappropriately by saying he "sack tapped him."
The episode has since been pulled.

Rogers gave the following statement on social media:
"Hi, my name is Cameron Rogers, I wrestle as Stallion Rogers, formerly known as Curt Stallion. It's been brought to my attention that at some point in the past, I said some really stupid transphobic shit on a podcast that I never should have said. I've taken a few days to address the issue at hand because I needed to really step back and reflect on myself to make sure that this wouldn't be some PR stunt to save my career or whatever because that's not what this is about, nor has it ever been. I am disgusted with the way I've made people feel with the things that I've said. I've never wanted to be that guy, nor do I ever want to be. With that said, I sincerely apologize to anybody whose feelings were hurt by the things that I've said or anything I've done in the past, recorded or not. I would like to grow from this and move on. Hopefully, we can do that together. With that said, any future potential bookings that I may receive for the rest of 2021, I will be donating a percentage of that to the National Center for Trans Equality. Thank you all very much and have a wonderful rest of your week," he said.
Rogers most recently wrestled at AAW Defining Moment and has appeared on AEW Dark since he was released by WWE on June 25.
Multiple Independent companies including Limitless And Unsanctioned Pro pulled him from upcoming events.
