‘It’s like headbutting a beehive’ – Joe Rogan reacts to Mike Tyson hitting passenger on plane

Joe Rogan has shared his thoughts on footage of Mike Tyson during an altercation with a man on a plane.

The video shows a man sitting behind Tyson on a plane continually taunting the former undisputed heavyweight champion until Tyson reacted and repeatedly punched his fellow traveler, leaving him bloodied.

Tyson was never far from controversy during his fighting days

“It’s very simple: this guy was an asshole.” Rogan said in a recent episode of his podcast.

“He was annoying one of the meanest shit mothers to ever walk the face of the earth.

“That’s so stupid!” That’s not even kicking a beehive. It’s like breaking – it’s headbutting a beehive.

“If you’re standing where Mike Tyson leans into the back of an airplane seat and punches you in the face, I think you’ve probably earned it.

“People are going crazy. They think just because he’s Mike Tyson, he’s famous, he can’t hit you.

“You are pissing him off! He’ll just f****** hit you like a normal person would.

Rogan isn’t the only famous face to have backed Tyson since the incident, as we’ve also seen Jake Paul backing the legendary fighter.

He said: “If you’re heckled in public like Mike Tyson, you should legally get a pass to beat someone’s ass.

“This generation thinks they can get away with anything.”

UFC President Dana White also chimed in, posting, “Hey dummies, for future reference this is how you stay alive when you meet Mike Tyson on a plane.”

White accompanied the tweet with a humorous video of an interaction between the duo.
