While discussing the situation with special guest Brendan Schaub, Logan Paul explained that he can understand Mike Tyson getting angry.
Logan explained, “I get that because when you take a selfie with someone, that’s the end of our interaction. Maybe if I’m interested in the conversation I’ll keep going, but if we’re sitting next to each other on the plane and it’s clear I’m not interested in the conversation – cut it out.
“The fact that this guy was making videos and he was obnoxious and then he got to the point where he was talking shit…well…playing stupid games, winning stupid prizes.”
(Topic starts at 40:44 in the video)
Logan isn’t the first influencer to meddle in Mike Tyson’s viral video. In fact, brother Jake Paul defended the boxing champ just a day after the clip gained popularity.
In a tweet, Jake said: “If you’re being verbally abused in public like Mike Tyson, you should legally get yourself a hall pass to smack someone’s a**. This generation thinks they can get away with anything.”
Just a few days after Jake’s tweet, Joe Rogan also came out in Tyson’s defense, stating that the guy deserved it.
