John Cena Is Apologizing To China About What He Said In A Recent Interview

John Cena is owning up to his mistake in a public apology to China.

The 44-year-old F9 star made a formal apology to the country after referring to Taiwan as its own country instead of a province, as it is considered.

During an interview with Taiwanese broadcaster TVBS, John apparently said that “Taiwan is the first country that can watch” the newest Fast & Furious movie, F9.

After the interview aired, John made his apology and spoke in Mandarin on Weibo, a Chinese social media site.

“I made a mistake,” he stated, via the New York Times. “Now I have to say one thing which is very, very, very important: I love and respect China and Chinese people.”

He added, “I’m very sorry for my mistakes. Sorry. Sorry. I’m really sorry. You have to understand that I love and respect China and Chinese people.”

There is a lot of controversy on whether Taiwan is truly its’ own country. As of right now, there are only 17 countries recognize Taiwan’s democratic government.

F9 will be out in US theaters in June!
