Chris Jericho was recently involved in an altercation on the streets of New York City, and it wasn’t pretty. Chris got into it with a fan after an event on Friday night, and although the altercation didn’t get physical, several F-bombs were exchanged between Jericho and the fan involved.
Jericho was in New York to attend a tribute show for musician David Z who recently lost his life in a tragic bus accident. Fans approached Jericho for autographs outside the venue, and after a while Chris grew frustrated and he started turning people down.
That’s when things took a turn for the worse, and Chris Jericho got into an argument with a fan who was claiming he just wanted to congratulate Jericho on a recent match, and they started cursing at each other in the streets.
The first ever WWE Undisputed Champion has since issued a statement and an apology explaining that he was not in a good mental or emotional state on Friday night.
“David Z was a good friend of mine and I was mentally and emotionally shattered after paying tribute to him and essentially saying goodbye to him Friday night. I was not in a good state of mind at that time and instead of ignoring a pushy (aka rude) fan which is what I would usually do, I snapped. My apologies to all involved and God bless David Z.”
