People are accusing 54-year-old Mike Tyson of being drunk, stoned, off his face on charlie, and all sorts of other things after he gave a bit of a weird interview on Good Morning Britain earlier.
Here’s how the interview played out – 6 weeks away from Mike’s comeback fight against old foe Roy Jones Jr:
Well… that could be anything really. Extreme tiredness? Smoked a blunt beforehand? Just having a bad day in general where he can’t really be arsed to speak to Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid? Fair play to him for sticking around and answering the questions anyway in that state.
Here’s what Twitter made of it:
Mike Tyson’s a living legend fucking love the man 😂👍 #KidDynamite 🧨 stoned off his titts on GMB got interviewed at1am in his time and not a single fuck given he smokes $30.000 of weed a month what does anyone expect a speech fit for the Nobel peace prize he’s a weed addict man

He readily admits to being a stoner. His fight is only 6 weeks away, No way can he fight at pro. heavyweight level in this state, he would be killed. His licence needs a serious review, for his own sake.

So naturally most people are assuming Mike Tyson is high off his face, which there’s a good chance is the case. Like a couple of those Tweets point out, Mike Tyson LOVES getting high. But like anyone who loves smoking weed sometimes you can smoke a bit too much and go into that zombie mode where it’s tough to string a coherent sentence together, let alone go on live TV and be interviewed via Skype.
As for ‘slurring his words’, this is Mike Tyson we’re talking about. He was always a slurrer. I’m going to give him a pass on this one no matter which way you look at it. The man is 54 years old preparing for a big comeback fight and he’s giving interviews at 1am or whatever time it was in LA when GMB is on. If he wants to smoke a little bit of weed beforehand and power through it, fair play to him.
UPDATE: Mike Tyson has Tweeted to say he was just tired! So that settles that then.
Hey mate @piersmorgan @GMB @susannareid100 and UK. I tried to stay up late for interview but fell asleep and like a lion I’m hard to wake once asleep. Training hard and going to bed early. I had no monitor so I couldn’t see you guys and forgot to look into camera.
