Mike Tyson & Rick Flair: 'Will Smith's slap was staged, I would've punched Chris Rock'

There's a running gag of what Will Smith would've done if instead of Chris Rock, another celebrity such asMike Tyson would've made that joke about Jada Pinkett Smith. But 'Iron Mike' seems to be on Will Smith's side instead of Chris Rock. You gotta understand that the former Heavyweight champion was the butt of jokes for decades amid his behavior outside of the ring. He wasn't just convicted and jailed but he also has a speech impediment that makes brave comedians impersonate him every chance they get. Back in the '90s, poking fun of Mike Tyson was an extreme sport for comedians. Although not many would make jokes about him right in front of his face.

These days, Mike Tyson is an active cannabis activst who has a podcast called 'Hotboxin' with Mike Tyson'. He has any celebrity you can think of on the podcast and this time he invited WWE legend, Rick Flair. In this episode, both contact sports legends agreed that the whole slap drama was staged but they also agreed they would've punched rather than slapped Chris Rock for joking about their wives. "I can speak for myself, and I'm pretty sure I'm speaking for Mike," Flair said. "If I didn't like a remark, for any reason whatsoever, that somebody said about my wife, I would be punching them - not slapping them. When you're mad at someone, you don't slap him, you punch him."

As Mike was listening, we all suddenly realized this is the former Heavyweight champion who is about to offer his two cents abotu the famous slap. Here's what he responded: "If Ric says it's a fake, then it's a fake. It would be more than one punch, too," said Mike about Rick Flair's solution. It appears that despite his love and peace days at the moment, 'Iron Mike' would still respond violently if his wife's honor was on the line. He doesn't seem to care about decorum or any type of criticism comes at him from the comedy community. Either way, no comedian would even dare contradict Mike Tyson. Most of them idolize him anyway.

Adblock test (Why?)
