Mike Tyson is speaking out for the first time on the unruly passenger he had to put his hands on last month.
On April 20, an unruly, intoxicated passenger on a jet blue flight harassed Mike Tyson and caught a beat down. The unnamed man sat behind Mike and through a water bottle at the boxing legend! Before that, the passenger asked Mike to take selfies, and Mike did, but the passenger wouldn’t stop bothering him after.
The video shows Mike was calm, but then the annoying passenger kept harassing Mike. Then we see the former heavyweight champion repeatedly punch the passenger in the face. The San Francisco Police Department detained them both, but the man refused to cooperate with the investigation. After watching the video and interviewing both parties involved, the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office reportedly decided not to file any charges in connection to the case.
Mike recently spoke about the ordeal on his Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson podcast. Mike explained how he felt during the situation. He said, “He was f—-– with me, man. I shouldn’t even be taking public planes.” He went on to say that his wife tells him all the time to fly private. Mike said, “My wife gets mad that I take public planes, but what am I gonna do on a f-–– plane with my friends?”
He also said he feels “triggered” by situations he experienced. He also shared his thoughts on Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars during the podcast. One of the hosts asked Mike if he thought Will would have slapped him if he had been there on stage instead of Chris. Mike said, “I wouldn’t be talking about his f**king wife. No, he wouldn’t hit me no.”
