Mike Tyson Says His Daughter Tried To ‘Confront Boosie Physically’ For His Transphobic Comments

Mike Tyson and Boosie’s recent sit-down might have gone viral, but the boxer has now revealed that his daughter wanted things to get physical.

Boosie later said that Mike Tyson’s daughter wanted to talk to him after the interview, but they never came to an agreement during their chat.

“So basically she was saying the things that she was passionate about and I was saying the things that I was passionate about and she couldn’t feel me. I guess she was saying I couldn’t feel her but I was telling her I have no ill will towards that.  I was telling her you’re talking about that, well I’m talking about this also, I feel like this is a bigger subject that’s close to my heart.”
Boosie says that there was no resolve between him and Boosie’s daughter and she walked out of the room.
“So we didn’t see eye to eye so she got up and walked out.”
Now, Mike Tyson has revealed his daughter wanted to fight the rapper. He told DJ VLAD: 
“She came from New York to right here to confront this guy. And she’s violent. I thought she came to see me. I thought she came all the way down here to see her father, her stepmother…She came to confront him physically. I just had to take care of that… I had to come in, I’m watching her, she explained herself, he explained himself. It didn’t go as bad as I thought it was gonna go.”
He added:
“I learned that day, there’s a set of people and they’re very serious about stuff like that — calling somebody gay, or queer… that’s very offensive. That’s like calling black people n—as…I didn’t know, I took it for granted. I was a guy, I was a sexist. I didn’t understand other people’s feelings. From that experience, to come from New York to here to represent who she was, and to get physical, I respect that…”
