Tyson Weighs in on Chris Brown
Wife beater and convicted rapist Mike Tyson has stepped into the ring and is sharing his opinion on Chris Brown's beatdown of girlfriend Rihanna. The former heavyweight attributed Brown's assault against the "Umbrella" singer that left her bruised and battered to a case of the baby blues. Brown is nothing more than a young buck, says Tyson. The fighter, who's earned himself a reputation for his violence against women over the years, told MTV News, "It's none of my business, but you know what I say about that? I understand the situation. I understand passion with young kids. My personal opinion about that is, he's just a baby. He's just a little baby that don't know how to handle his emotions when it comes to a woman. And he probably hears this and thinks, 'I know how to handle my emotions'; we all think we do. But the fact [is], you look at this person and you might be crazy in love, but we don't know how to handle those feelings." What Tyson fails to recognize is that this "baby" packs a mean punch, especially when he's using his girlfriend's face as a punching bag. Tyson also took the opportunity to fess up to his own past indiscretions against the ladies in his life, saying, "You can't abuse them. It's really sick what you [can] do. She has a space in your heart and you believe you care about her more than anybody in the world. Do I think it's right to beat up a woman? No ? hell no. Have I hit a woman before? Hell yeah. Was I wrong? Hell yeah. I'm a product of that environment. Do I regret ever doing that? Hell yeah. Would I do it again? Never." Obviously, three years in prison for rape served the boxer well.
