ESPN: Tyson Said He Would 'Really' Rape Victim Now

Quote:
Mike Tyson hasn't lost his penchant for saying the outrageous.

In a television interview scheduled for broadcast Thursday, Tyson again denied he raped Desiree Washington in 1991 in an Indianapolis hotel room. But he said the burden of being labeled a convicted rapist makes him want to do it now.

"I just hate her guts. She put me in that state, where I don't know,'' Tyson said. "I really wish I did now. But now I really do want to rape her.''

Tyson made the comments during a recent interview in Miami Beach with Greta Van Susteren, who was taking a look back at the circumstances of Tyson's 1992 trial that ended with him convicted of rape and sentenced to six years in prison.

He served three years of the sentence before being released on parole.

A call for comment to Tyson's adviser, Shelly Finkel, was not immediately returned.

The interview will be shown Thursday night on "The Pulse'' on the Fox network.

I like him better when he's making more general comments about cutting out hearts, stomping on testicles, and eating children.

But directing his rape fantasies at a specific woman (who he was actually convicted of raping, no less) is too much.

Had he raped her in this state, no doubt he'd be sitting in death row right now. Stupid bleeding heart judges.

Hopefully there are a few more beatings on the table for this guy. But I doubt he means much of what he says as it is used for attention getting purposes. Albeit some rather extreme ones.

If he were innocent I can see why he would say something like this. Not saying I think he is innocent...

The sad part is that every time he fights, people still pay good money to see him.

Gotta love the media. Stick a microphone in front of someone who is nearly a psychopath, with a history of bizarre statements, then act surprised when he spews something like this. Yes, Mike Tyson is unhinged, is that really news? He should be chained down between fights, like Mighty Joe Young.

Honk!

Sounds like somebody forgot to give Mike his medicine before the interview. What a complete joke of a human being

Had he raped her in Louisiana, his testicles would have been used for ping pong balls thanks to the state prison population.

Hey OJ! Tyson is a blonde bitch and needs his throat cut!

This is the type of guy you'd rather have as a friend then an enemy.

Nope no sarcasm here.

He claims he didn't rape her, whether or not that's true I don't know, but in my opinion it's probably 50/50 as to whether it happened or not.

Tyson in his prime, was one of the most feared men in boxing. Not a lot of style, just pure power. That was taken from him as he sat in jail.

I have no problems with the guy. He's a bit crazy, but you would be to if you went thru all the **** he did.
