Chris Jericho Suspended From The WWE For Disrespecting The Brazilian Flag - Details Available!
During the match between Jericho and C.M. Punk, the latter was waving the Brazilian flag proudly. All of a sudden Jericho crumbled up the Brazilian flag into a ball, threw it on the ground and kicked it. He was then informed that desecrating the national flag is a crime in Brazil punishable by incarceration.
Following the incident Jericho apologized to the Brazilian crowd: "I'd like to apologize for stepping on the flag earlier. I love Brazil. We are very happy to be here to perform in front of you. So please accept my apology for stepping on your wonderful flag of this wonderful country."
A short time later, the WWE posted this message on their web site:
"Chris Jericho has been suspended indefinitely due to an irresponsible act of denigrating the Brazilian flag at a WWE live event in São Paulo on May 24. WWE has apologized to the citizens and the government of Brazil for this incident."
