A now-kinder, gentler Mike Tyson (I’m actually being serious. The poor bastard lost a four-year-old daughter after cleaning himself up.) would “100% percent” have worked with Mel Gibson in The Hangover 2 which SPOILER ALERT: Iron Mike is apparently in. — I might’ve done that a little late. Page Six reports:
I’m not going to ever in my life point my finger at anyone. I don’t live in a glass house. None of us do. I work with anybody, as long as they’re respectful. …. We all have that guy — a Mel Gibson — in us. We just don’t want people to be exposed to it. Maybe he needs to go get help. We all need help, and need someone to talk to. I’m not against him, but I’m not for him.”
Granted, Mike Tyson raped a woman twenty years ago and committed a laundry list of crimes in his youth, those are actually some pretty sage words from a man still striving to find redemption for his past. Then again, this is a also a man who, for all intents and purposes, is probably immune to fire and therefore has nothing to fear. Because, at the end of the day, would could Mel Gibson possibly do to Mike Tyson that Mike Tyson hasn’t already done to himself?
Not counting saying his tits are sugary sweet. The champ don’t play like that.
