John Oliver Calls John Cena’s Apology To China Weird On HBO’s “Last Week Tonight”

John Cena’s apology to China was included in the latest episode of “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.”

Cena issued an apology to the Chinese people earlier this year after some controversy arose during media appearances he made while promoting F9: The Fast Saga film. During an interview, Cena referred to Taiwan as a country, despite China considering it part of their country.

On the aforementioned HBO program with John Oliver, which premiered on Sunday night, the show discussed the various issues surrounding that situation as part of their main story.

Oliver spoke about Cena’s apology as being “weird,” noting, “It’s weird John Cena apologized to China, it’s weird that he did it for calling Taiwan a country and it’s weird to see him do it in pretty decent Mandarin! That’s just too many weird things!”

Cena began learning Mandarin years ago to help with the global expansion of WWE, noting back in 2017, “I started wanting to learn Mandarin to get our global company [WWE] to be a true global company. [I’m] fascinated with the language and have become obsessed with trying to learn it.”

In related Cena-news, The Suicide Squad film he is featured in will be released on Tuesday on Blu-ray and DVD.
