YouTube Celebrity Says John Cena Denied His Photo Request

Ed Bassmaster, who has amassed over 230 million views on his hidden camera prank themed YouTube channel, stated Tuesday on Facebook that denied his request for a photo opportunity on Tuesday while riding a shuttle bus with the WWE Superstar at Tampa International Airport.

“So I’m at the airport in Tampa and I get on the shuttle bus. It’s just me and John Cena. I ask him for a quick pic and he says “I’m on my way home” without even making eye contact with me. Thanks John, it wasn’t for me. It was for my 4 year old little nephew. My three year olds John Cena doll is going in the trash when I get home,” wrote Bassmaster.

Bassmaster issued an apology Thursday shortly after news broke that Cena had filed for divorce from his high school sweetheart and wife of three years, Elizabeth Huberdeau.

“Never judge a book by its cover. John Cena filed for divorce today. Evidently he had good reason to be short and unpleasant towards me. I apologize for my statement, and the doll will not go in the trash,” he wrote.

    Just because you are a celebrity doesn’t mean you have to make everybody happy. Growing up I learned why heels like to remain heels, they get to keep more control over their life.

    • Elgwyn

      That’s the advantage of being a heel. If you are a heel, it is already given that you’d be prick to the fans. But, when you are a face, you are expected to be a saint. One wrong move and they will brand you as asshole. Just look at The Miz, Chris Jericho, DZ and other heels, they could get away with their rudeness and manage to laugh it off. While faces like Cena, Orton and Punk, woke up in the wrong side of the bed and be a prick the whole day, it’s a different story.

    Cena has had a pretty crappy week by the sound of things, so I think he deserves a pass on this one. Regardless, Cena could have handled it better. No matter what the circumstances, not even making eye contact with the guy is pretty rude.

    • 197921998

      Andrew, if your marriage was crumbling and this only happened one time as far as we know, I’d have to give him a pass completely. He has a lot on his mind.

      • http://twitter.com/AJCampbellNYG Andrew Campbell

        I’m not saying that he doesn’t have the right to say no to a photo op, I’m just saying he could have atleast made eye contact with the guy and explained that he’s not feeling upto it.

        • ppwnez

          hey lil Bow wow would you feel any different if this exact story was about the Rock?

          • Bushwald Sexyface

            You wouldn’t hear this kind of thing about Rock.

            By the way, you’re trolling pwnez and attempting to call someone else something? Evidentally, you don’t realize the hypocriticalness in that.

            You always have to change the subject, right?

            If you must know, there’s a bug that doesn’t let me post comments, after all those times i click the damn button. 1 quick question, you have no life, you really had to thumbs down all those comments & remove them too, damn kill yourself buddy.

          • Bushwald Sexyface

            Hate to burst your bubble but I didn’t “thumbs down” your bullshit. Why would I need to do that? I’d rather everyone see just how desperate for attention you are.

            How the hell did I change the subject anyway? The subject was you being a desperate moron who felt the need to spam shit and then blame it on a “bug”. Shit man, at least stick by your childish antics.

            1 quck question? Wtf was your question? Did you forget it in the 14 minutes it took you to type out for 3 sentences?

      you have point andrew however, I’ve been those moments like Cena where you have to make tough decision you don’t want to make. and quite frankly in those moment you really don’t even want talk to anyone. all you want is to be alone in you thoughts.

    • aj2345

      Why is everyone giving Cena a pass for being an ass? All the dude asked for is a picture! It only takes a second to hide your emotions and take a picture. He wasn’t trying to spend the day with him or nothing. Does that mean if you’re on the street having a bad day and no one knows but you, and someone asks you to do something, that gives you aright to be an asshole too?

  • jason

    Man Cena just keeps having a bad week. Well I guess black chain gang leader will be on here any minute butchering the english language and being a idiot.

  • Spookusjoe

    Its worth remembering that these are real people with real shit going on. It’s easy for all of us to forget that and expect the “Character” we see on TV all the time!
    I respect Cena hugely and we all know how much good he does off camera, dude deserves the right to have a bad day once in a while.

  • pwnez

    I find this hard to believe. Why is all this coming out just around the time of his divorce? It just doesn’t seem right to me. If this did actually happen then yes, he could have handled it a bit better. Then again name me a celebrity who is a perfect saint?

    • Forceton Banfodder

      Mother Teresa?

      • pwnez

        Didn’t she starr in Catwoman?

        • Forceton Banfodder

          sounds legit.

  • Elgwyn

    I really disagree with people saying that celebrities should learn how to cope with circumstances. They are also humans. We have problems, they have problems. We fart, they fart too. Aside from their talents, I know these celebrities owe their status to the fans. But, we the fans should also know the boundaries and provide these celebrities who entertained us for years the privacy that they deserve. That’s the reason why I despise paparazzis. They earn a living by meddling with some people’s lives. If Cena yelled someone, I won’t be surprised. He’s on a rocky situation. Give the guy a break. He’s no saint.

    • GreatRedBeard

      Which is why the guy apologized once he found out…

      • Elgwyn

        The guy did apologize and it’s ok. I’m speaking generally. I mean celebrities are meant to provide entertainment and anything that happens in their personal lives is none of our business. Let’s say a good actor is a douche in real life but we cannot change the fact that he’s a good actor. Personally, if a celebrity is condemned for murder, I’m not a fan of him in real life but still I would praise his/her works on screen.

        • Mubashwer

          well said! except the murder thing…

          • Elgwyn

            Lol. Well, yea. Thanks. Each one of us has our own preference regarding certain issues. =)

        • ezeekaY

          I have never seen Cena in such a state that he is in right now. I hope he gets over with his situation as soon as possible.

  • fan

    It’s not like Cena told the guy to F off or anything. He just mentioned he was on his way home. Also, Cena has no bad history of doing this type of thing with fans often. The guy was a jerk for saying that on his facebook about him. Of course his personal issues make his response understandable but the first two things, a polite response and the fact he doesn’t normally do this, are enough reason for him not to receive a response like that on facebook. We are all human and deserve a break from time to time.

  • kquickstillsucks

    Divorce or not WHAT exactly does John Cena owe this guy? Absolutely nothing IMO.

    • IKeepsit100

    Looking at some of the comments on Ed Bassmaster’s original post shows me how ignorant people can be.

    He didn’t take a picture with you. So what, stop your bitching and move on with your life.

  • vorhees666

    A lot of times, there are times when these people don’t want to be bothered.

    Even Mick Foley has stated before that if he’s out and about with his family, to leave him alone.

    Yeah, Cena came off a bit like an ass, but with good reason that nobody knew about until recently.

  • fatneal

    lol i love ed bassmaster and jack vale but what with people obsessing over pics with celebs…they’re just people nothing omnipresent gods….but in all seriousness…ed throw that doll in the trash

  • GMpunk

    Maybe fans can now learn not to shove there grubby paws in the faces of wrestlers after returning from a long road trip. It could be they have things of greater importance than taking a picture with a fan on their mind. Futhermore, John, you could do a lot better..

  • prowrestlingisfake.com

    That YouTube guy retracted his comment and the original post has been removed.

  • http://twitter.com/TNAWWEGal Shonna

    wow over a picture cause John said no and no eye contact and I said this before celebs have lives like we do and they go through personal things life like stress like we do and gosh he ought to know that I know he is not the only one that has probably asked Cena all he could have done was cooperated with Cena when he said no and asked him if it be ok to do on a certain day… people don’t realize that Celebs have a life as well…Cena has been through enough whether you love or hate em he loves to do what he does best and what people don’t realize people like Cena go through actions in making movies and wrestling he was on dream machines Cena has alot of things to do in his life and gosh on twitter he has over 2million followers and now going through a divorce wish him best just like any other wrestlers and celebs and everybody else but we all have our opinions can’t make everyone happy there is always going to be someone not happy just hope things get better well just glad at the end that he said he was sorry so I guess it is at peace now…. edt..

  • Jeremy

    People are selfish and only think of themselves. Even if Cena WASN’T going through a divorce, he is allowed time to himself without being bothered by people.

  • Cottrell Atwood

    I feel for dude going thru his divorce wouldn’t be taken any pics either can’t blame him he’s probably worn out and tired he never really takes a break loves his job and the IWC always bash this man for his five moves , super strength, and that ass whooping Brock dished out not a good couple of months shit probably getting to him at least he was nice enough to acknowledge him me personally I’d ignored him and been thinking how I’m going to get this”I’m entitled to 70% money hungry squaw” out of my house and burn her shit in the front and back yard on some waiting to exhale type of shit lol sorry but smut puppies like that is why women get perceived as gold diggers and skanks John I’m still a fan you will rise above the hate just take a month or two off hit the beach relax and find some new new to beat the brakes off

  • Hey I just realized..

    2 months earlier: March 12, 2012 at the Rock Concert
    Rock saw Cena makin out with Eve. Grabbin on her thigh; tuggin on her weave. Cena was havin the time of his life, i guess he didn’t tell her that he’s got a wife, Lets Rock, Everybody Let’s Rock. Divorce Lawyers Ride up The Block, But were Dancing cause CLEVELAND ROCKS! Yeah i guess it slipped his mind, while he was slippin her the tongue.

    ROCK PREDICTED THE FUTURE?!?!?!

  • Natieca

    At the end of the day he is still a person. People tend to forget that these guys are exactly that. He’s not going to want to sign something or have a camera shoved in his face all the time. Let these guys breathe every once in awhile. It shouldn’t matter if he’s going through a tough time or not.

  • TheresProgressNow

    who gives a shit about youtube celebrities, and why on earth are they even called celebrities? like that Ray Johnson….god I’ve never seen a bigger dork in my life, dissing Angry Grandpa like that….HE’S a celebrity??

    if all it takes is to start talkin out of your ass and posting it on youtube, then I think I’ll outsub RWJ in a heartbeat, and at the very least I’ll give people something far more pleasant to look at, not that fugly midget.

    though on the Cena topic, she looks more like a man than he does
