Mike Tyson is fighting obnoxious plane passengers and the wealthy elites are hunting the homeless
Yesterday, a video surfaced on social media showing an altercation between Mike Tyson and another passenger on a flight out of San Francisco. Why anyone would want to fight the king of knockouts is beyond me but in the video, we have a visibly intoxicated man harassing the former heavyweight champ. As we have long documented here at The Liberty Line, fighting in public is never worth it, even more so when you decide to pick a fight with Mike Tyson.
Questions before breaking down the fight video:
- Why is Mike Tyson flying JetBlue coach? He was in San Francisco for the city’s 420 weed festival. You’d think they could have provided him with some first class tickets for showing up there.
- How many drinks did this guy have? How drunk do you have to be to badger Mike Tyson into a fight? He still hits the gym regularly and if you’ve seen videos of him sparring, it’s apparent he still packs a wallop.
- How is this guy still alive? I’m assuming that Tyson could tell the guy was extremely drunk and pulled his punches.
Mike Tyson beats up annoying passenger on an airplane
Rolling the tape of the incident, it’s pretty clear the only thing that saved this guy from getting his head crushed like a grape was the presence of a row of airline seats separating them, and Tyson clearly holding back from fully unloading.
Mike Tyson was clearly goaded into this fight
The before and after video of the guy harassing Tyson paints a bigger picture of what happened.
The guy Tyson beats up is annoying as hell and completely bombed, performing for his friend who is videoing his interaction with Tyson their phone. At one point there is some giggling about how Tyson is supposedly going to give the guy “shrooms.”
The video then abruptly cuts to the aftermath. The harasser looks shaken, but is still trying to play it off as some kind of wacky scenario. His friend behind the phone provides the insightful commentary that “Yeah, you got fucked up.”
There’s a lot of talk about this possibly being staged to try to extort Tyson, but my feeling is the guy legit thought he could goof around with Mike Tyson. He’s most famous for playing a parody of himself these days.
If you see Mike Tyson on a plane. Leave him the hell alone. Especially if he just gave a rollicking interview with Joe Rogan where he discussed his belief that homeless people are being hunted on the estates of the wealthy elites.
On the Joe Rogan Experience podcast Tyson was quoted as saying the following
‘This is what happens: they take these homeless people off the streets. Put ’em in there, take them to one of those special hospitals.’
‘[Then], they take them from the hospital, all drugged up, take ’em to these large estates, property – “let’s hunt” – Run!’
So you can imagine Mike Tyson was probably more than a little edgy on his flight back from the 420 festival. The dopey guy that picked the fight with him is lucky Tyson didn’t think he was part of some conspiracy to silence him.
Of course there is always the possibility that maybe this stunt was designed to silence him in another way. Push his buttons and make him seem erratic in public? I highly doubt it but the sickos that hunt the homeless likely have no depths that they wouldn’t sink to.
Personally I think it was just an obnoxious passenger that didn’t know when the champ had enough. But these days, I guess you never can be too sure.
