During the show, Nikki was asked about her opinion on Chyna’s wrestling attire, to which, she said, “We don’t know if it’s a man or a woman,”.

Unfortunately, the host Joan Rivers added insult to the injury with some questionable words of her own.

Many of her followers tried to defend Bella, saying that maybe it was all scripted. To this, Chyna’s official Twitter account said, “No was disrespectful period!!”

Since then, the former WWE Diva champion has taken to social media and apologized for her senseless remarks about the legend.

“I want to sincerely apologize for a comment I made over 8 years ago on Fashion Police. I am sorry and embarrassed by my 29-year-old self, who offended Chyna and in turn, hurt her family and others. I wish I could take it back. Please learn from me, it’s not worth hurting someone’s feelings for a meaningless laugh. Chyna will always be remembered as an icon and pioneer who helped create the opportunities for women in wrestling that exist today. Thank you Chyna! – Nikki Bella.” Nikki tweeted.

Fan reactions to Nikki Bella’s comments

The tweet has seen mixed reactions from the fans, with many of them saying that it is good that she has apologized for the incident, and many others saying that it’s a bit too late. Sadly, the video can never be erased from the internet.

Surely, it was Chyna aka ‘The Amazon’ and few other female wrestlers who put women’s wrestling on the map. She had a larger-than-life character and would often break all the stereotypes set for women in the sport of professional wrestling.

Moreover, she was the only female wrestler to become the Intercontinental Champion, defeating Chris Jericho.
