Mike Tyson curses out television host for bringing up his past rape conviction on live TV



Former Undisputed Heavyweight Champion of the Word, convicted rapist, television and now traveling performer Mike Tyson had a few choice words for Nathan Downer of CP24 News Toronto.   After Downer asked Tyson to comment on the political ramifications of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford meeting with a convicted Rapist, Tyson began smoldering and called Downer a ‘rat piece of shit.’  Downer reminded Tyson that he was on live television, and Tyson asked Downer what he was going to do about it.  When Downer thanked Tyson for being on the program, Tyson closed the interview by saying, “Fuck you.”

Tyson was convicted of rape in 1992.  In 1999 he was convicted of assault.
