John Cena asked about the sex trafficking accusations against Vince McMahon

During an interview with Howard Stern, John Cena commented on the sex trafficking accusations against former WWE chairman Vince McMahon and how he’s handling the situation…

“I don’t think it’s complicated to talk about. It’s complicated to listen to. That’s why I don’t necessarily put a lot of time and equity into it. There’s still a long way to go. I can say this: I’m a big advocate of love and friendship and honesty and communication. But in the same breath, I’m also a big advocate of accountability. I think you (Stern) explained it well, if someone’s behavior lies so far outside your value system that the balance shifts, of like, ‘I can’t operate in a world where this works,’ that’s the end result of being accountable.”

“Right now, I’m gonna love the person I love, be their friend. ‘I love you, you have a hill to climb’. There is the saying of, ‘You don’t know who your friends are until sh*t hits the fan or your back is against the wall’. That doesn’t make any of what’s going on any easier to swallow. Just telling someone you love them, it’s a hill to climb, and we’ll see what happens. That’s that. It sounds so cliche, but it has to be one day at a time. I’ve openly said, I love the guy, I have a great relationship with the guy, and that’s that. It’s largely my construct of operating with honesty and communication. Those are strong leads to handling any problem or achievement.”

“The whole thing is super unfortunate and it sucks. It deals with an individual I love and an entity I love. I want everyone to have the experience that I have. Not only do I tell a friend that I love them, but I switch to the entity and say, ‘How can I help?'” (quotes courtesy of
