John Cena was on the receiving end of a piledriver Tuesday from American Twitter users after his “pathetic” apology to China for referring to Taiwan as a country during a promotional spot for his new movie “F9.”

“Taiwan is a country. Hong Kong should be free. If you are unwilling to say these things because it might hurt your bottom line, you are a pathetic coward​,” conservative pundit Ben Shapiro posted on his Twitter account.​

“Pathetic,” was Republican Sen. Tom Cotton’s reaction to Cena’s mea culpa.

Cena, speaking Mandarin, went on Chinese social media site Weibo Tuesday to apologize for calling Taiwan a country during a promotional interview for “F9,” the latest installment for the “Fast and Furious” franchise, earlier this month.

The Chinese, who consider Taiwan a rogue province that is part of their territory, erupted in outrage at his blunder.
