Back in the day, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson was one of the most interesting and impressive fighters in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Unfortunately, like all athletes that can’t come to terms with their declining performance, growing irrelevance and lack of future prospects, he appears to have gone insane. Either that or he was an absolute moron to begin with.
On Thursday, video surfaced of Jackson’s attempt at a “short film” – a minute and a half long clip where he shows us “How to Pick Up a Gurl.” Only in his world, picking up a girl apparently involves trying to rape her, having her end up being a man, and then having that man try to rape him in retribution. I kid you not, this twisted garbage actually happened in Jackson’s video.
Look, we’re certainly not overly-sensitive around here. Dirty, raunchy humor is a perfectly acceptable means of expressing yourself. But acting out a rape and trying to make light of that situation is all sorts of horrible. It's not funny. It's stupid and totally unnecessary.
It’s mind boggling that we’re actually having to talk about this, really.
Warning: This video contains explicit content, cursing and a mock rape. We’re rolling with it because YouTube is letting it go and the world should know what an idiot Jackson is, but the video isn’t for the faint of heart.
(Kudos to The Big Lead for the find)
