Mark Henry is telling Jim Cornette to apologize for comments made on a recent episode of NWA Powerrr. Henry recently spoke to TMZ.
“As much as I can say, I’m disappointed and I hope that he can try to fix this. But, some people just don’t like people of color,” Henry said to TMZ.
Henry then said Cornette needs to apologize.
“I would say, ‘Jim … please apologize, and mean it. And if you don’t mean it, then go all the way Darth Vader and [say] I just don’t like black people,'” Henry continued.
“At least I know who you are. And, then I can get rid of this feeling that I have in my heart. It’s like having your mother or father disown you. I feel like a sense of mourning.”
Cornette made the comment “He’s the only man I’ve ever known that can strap a bucket of fried chicken on his back and ride a motor scooter across Ethiopia,” during a recent broadcast of NWA’s weekly YouTube show. The episode was briefly taken offline, edited, and re-posted.

“Prior to all of this, the relationship that I had with Jim Cornette has been really, really good. He taught me a lot about pro wrestling, he allowed me into his home to look at his archive, he helped me to be the wrestler that I became. And, I probably wouldn’t have been the guy without him.”
“But, it is very, very hurtful. And, I don’t get emotional about much, but I feel a sense of loss.”
