Boxing legend Mike Tyson is controversial, to say the least. Even when he tries to explain something as innocent as why he is now a vegan. Harmless enough, you’d think, right?
Nope. During an interview with Ann Curry on The Today Show Tuesday morning to talk about his upcoming Broadway show (directed by Spike Lee), the boxer explained his current choice of diet:
“There was too many prison cells, too many jails, too many lawsuits, too many bankruptcies, too many women, too many venereal diseases, too many everything. I got tired… uhm, I really got tired of, you know, like every time a prostitute – I would head back from a trip – I had to sleep with her…I wanted to live a different life. I was a prostitute hunter!”
