Sasha Banks Issues Statement On Controversial 2016 Comments From Sammy Guevara
Sasha Banks took to Twitter to address 2016 comments that Sammy Guevara has went viral for.



As noted, Guevara appeared on The Whole F'N Show's in 2016 and recalled how he had just seen Banks while working as an extra at a WWE TV taping in Texas.

"Bro, Sasha Banks... oh my God. When I was at the WWE the other week I wanted to just go f--king rape that woman," Guevara said in 2016.

Guevara addressed the comments on Twitter this afternoon and said he will never forgive himself.

Sasha Banks tweeted on the matter and said she spoke to Sammy, and that he apologized and they had an open discussion.

"Earlier I spoke with Sammy, he apologized and we had an open discussion. Words like the comments he made, jokingly or not, have absolutely no place in our society! I don't condone or tolerate this kind of behavior. What one thinks is just a side comment can have a massive impact on someone else's life, and can send the wrong message. We have to hold ourselves accountable for our actions and the words we say, and I hope this situation shows him that. I hope from this point on, in order for growth and change within our community to take place, we all can continue to have these conversations. No person, man, woman or child, should ever be subjected to a feeling of fear, or any unsafe environment. We all have to do better not just for ourselves, but for generations to come," Banks wrote, signing the statement as Mercedes Varnado, her real name.
