Former heavyweight champion and convicted rapist Mike Tyson dropped the f-bomb on a Toronto, Canada, TV show this morning.
Tyson was promoting his one-man show "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth" when he lost it on live TV after he was asked about endorsing Toronto Mayor Rob Ford's re-election (video below).
“Some critics say that, ‘We know you’re a convicted rapist, this could actually hurt his campaign,’” said CP24 TV news anchor Nathan Downer, noted Mediaite.com.
“Hey, I don’t know who said that,” Tyson fired back. “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 s--- with that comment,” added Tyson. “F--- you. That was a piece of s--- comment.”
“We’re doing live TV here,” Downer told Tyson.
“I don’t care. What are you going to do about it?” Tyson countered, reported the New York Daily News.
Downer later asked Tyson, "Is it nerve-wracking for you to do something like [a one-man show]? Or is more nervous for you to box?”
“It’s more nerve-racking for me to hear us talking to a rat piece of s--t like you,” replied Tyson.
