The initial tweet came as a surprise to many as Foley himself falls on the plumper spectrum of wrestlers. The actor played the head elf in The Santa Clause and rose to prominence before disappearing from the media.

Last week on RAW, Krumholtz paraded to the ring with a black wig and blue kilt, mimicking WWE Champion Drew McIntyre on The Miz’s Dirt Sheet. McIntyre confronted Gillberg, who was mimicking Goldberg.

In his original post. Foley wrote, “Not that I should because I have certainly packed on some pounds in this last year of COVID, but from now on, I’m not sure I can catch the scene where Bernard is eating that sandwich, without thinking ‘put it down, Bro… put the sandwich down.”

Fans gave a mixed reaction to the segment on RAW. However, Foley’s comments were not taken too kindly.

Many fans started supporting Foley after he posted the apology.

Fellow WWE Hall of Famer, Jerry Lawler, also came in to support as he wrote, “Nowadays, Mick, everything you say will offend someone. I didn’t get upset with David when he threw up while watching me wrestle in the movie, “Life With Mikey.

Even after this support, many fans still hold Foley accountable for his comments. Krumholtz, on the other hand, is yet to respond to the tweet.
