A seemingly normal interview with Mike Tyson went downhill after the interviewer asked the wrong question at the wrong time.
Media sources report that Tyson was not thrilled with the questions he was asked by CP24, anchor Nathan Downer. During the interview, Downer brought up Toronto mayor Rob Ford and criticism he received for meeting with the former boxing champ.
“Some of your critics would say, ‘There’s a race for mayor. We know you’re a convicted rapist. This could hurt his campaign,’” Downer asked Tyson. “How would respond to that?”
Needless to say, Tyson wasn’t a happy camp with the line of questioning as he called , “negative.”
“It’s so interesting, you come off like a nice guy. But that was really a piece of s—, that comment. F— you. That was a piece of s—.”
In the days following, Downer took to social media to address the situation and the foul language used during the interview. Below are Downer’s tweets regarding the interview with Tyson:
“I’m okay everybody. Unfortunately my question hurt Mike Tyson’s feelings. That was not my intentions. My apologies (sic) for the language.”
“No ill will toward Mike Tyson. He lashed out at me and that’s okay. Not taking it personally.”
