Marc Goddard has slammed anyone who thinks Mike Tyson was in the wrong following a flight incident.

TMZ Sports obtained video of Tyson seemingly being harassed by someone on a flight. It got to the point where “Iron” Mike had enough and he punched the man several times, leaving him with some blood on the side of his head. Some witnesses have reportedly said the man was intoxicated.

Marc Goddard Goes Off On Those Blaming Mike Tyson

The general consensus seems to be that Mike Tyson was in the right for defending himself. With that said, renowned referee Marc Goddard has addressed those who don’t feel the same way.

“Social media & ‘news’ at its finest! So many video clips of Mike Tyson punching the passenger on the plane – but show the whole video & lead up that’s out there of a drunk man harassing, not the last 30 seconds with the click bait headline!”

“I’m not condoning & I’m not condemning. But I think you’ll find that’s EXACTLY how society “can” work and it might be a darn better place for it. Act a disregarding disrespectful fool & you “may” face a differing consequence than a stern word!”

Tyson appears to be unbothered by what transpired as he ended up smoking a joint with rapper and businessman Rick Ross and legendary wrestler Ric Flair following the incident. It should come as no surprise as Tyson has dealt with his share of less-than-ideal situations.

Back in March, Tyson ended up calming down someone who pulled out a gun during a comedy show in Hollywood.
