Mike Tyson was in Canada and showing support for embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford and the host wanted to know if a Tyson endorsement would really help the mayor.


‘We know you’re a convicted rapist — this could actually hurt his campaign,’” said anchor Nathan Downer, and asked Tyson — who served three years in prison after being convicted of rape in 1992 — how he’d respond to his critics. (Some would actually say that Rob Ford would hurt Rob Ford’s chances of being mayor, but that’s nitpicking.)

“Hey, I don’t know who said that,” a stunned Tyson responded. “You’re the only one I’ve heard say that. I don’t have no comment to that, because it’s negative and you’re being negative. I met the mayor. There’s nothing anyone can do about it.

“You come across as a nice guy, but you’re really a piece of shit with that comment,” he continued. “Fuck you. That was a piece of shit comment.”

“We’re doing live TV here,” Downer said.

“I don’t care. What are you going to do about it?”

    Only in Canada could this be a surprise.

    Well, the endorsement does seem in line character wise.

    Tyson, has never been eloquent. But why is Ford even on a ballot?

    hahahaha… not a Tyson fan, but it sure seemed like an honest response – which I appreciate. Poke a violent rapist kook in the eye, odds are you are going to get a nice juicy ‘F*ck You’ in response. Hilarious that the reporter thought a guy like Tyson would care that his response was being televised.

        Speaking of Tiffany. I haven’t seen you drop in over at since they got disqus as a comment system. We did push for her to switch to disqus. Shouldn’t you at least drop in and say a little something?

        • Anomaly 100 September 10th, 2014 at 8:18 pm

          I didn’t even notice that she made the switch. I checked a few days ago. I’ll drop in, thanks!

            You didn’t look at the comments from the black meme post at shame on you.

            I suck.

          • mea_mark September 10th, 2014 at 8:26 pm

            Well, there is still time I guess. And you can read my comments there.

          • Anomaly 100 September 10th, 2014 at 9:29 pm

            I’m gonna start leaving comments there, just to bug any of her haters, because I’m evil, that’s why.

    If Canada doesn’t enforce its residency laws too strictly, maybe Mike could be Rob’s running mate. They’re made for each other.

    He’s like Rob Ford’s Ted Nugent.
