Joe Rogan took a dig at one ‘douchebag’ who took it a step too far with Mike Tyson.
Tyson would be caught in a viral video of him punching a man on a plane. The man in question was reportedly Melvin Townsend III, who repeatedly harassed Tyson on a plane. After annoying the boxing legend on the flight, Tyson would unload multiple punches to Towsend.
Rogan, who recently appeared with Tyson for podcast episodes, would sound off on Townsend for his actions against Tyson.
“That dude was a douchebag,” Rogan said of Towsend, on his podcast. “He was annoying one of the baddest motherf*ckers that’s walked the face of the Earth. That’s so dumb.
“Talk about kicking a beehive. What the f**re you doing, dude? That’s not even kicking a beehive. It’s like smashing— It’s head butting a beehive.”
The UFC commentator would dive into deeper detail of who messed with the wrong guy on the plane.
“[Townsend] was probably on a lot of sh*t,” Rogan said. “[He] has a lengthy criminal history. If you find yourself for Mike Tyso’s reaching out the back of an airlines seat and punching you in the face… I think you’ve earned it. You climbed into a lion’s [den].”
In 2005, Tyson stopped boxing professionally, however, he has participated in a number of exhibition matches over the years, including his most recent exhibition bout against Roy Jones Jr. which took place on November 13, 2020.
