Mike Tyson recently shared his rather outlandish theory that homeless people are being hunted by the rich for sport.
Last Friday (15 April), the boxing champion joined forces with Joe Rogan for the latest instalment of his podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience.
However, things took a turn after Tyson shared his wild theory, saying that he ‘really believes’ the wealthy kidnap homeless people and hunt them down on their private estates.
Broaching the conversation, Tyson said to Rogan: “Whatever you think a human did to another human being – it happened. "Whatever it is, it happened.”
“Somewhere in history?” Rogan questioned.
“Yeah, and sometimes these special camps and stuff, it happens,” Tyson said. “These people own these thousands of acres and nothing grows on 'em.”
Keen to continue this line of thought, Rogan added: “Right, weird ranches where people do rituals and s***.”
“Might want to hunt a motherf*****,” Tyson continued.
“That's not outside the realm of possibility,” Rogan said.
“I know, that's why I'm throwing it at you,” Tyson replied.
“I guarantee you there's been someone, somewhere in the world who paid someone to hunt a person,” Rogan agreed. “I guarantee you that's happened!”
Now, this is where things turned dark.
Tyson began to explain his theory: “This is what happens: they take these homeless people off the streets. Put 'em in there, take them to one of those special hospitals.
“[Then], they take them from the hospital, all drugged up, take 'em to these large estates, property - "let's hunt" - Run!”
Clearly not fazed by Tyson’s theory, Rogan went on to cite Richard Connell’s short story, The Most Dangerous Game.
Published in 1924, the story follows a big game hunter from New York City who comes to be hunted by Russian oligarchs for sport on a private island in the Caribbean.
Brushing over the reference, Tyson asked Rogan whether he knew ‘the only reason we hunt the fox’.
“Their fur?” Rogan questioned, to which Tyson explained: “Fox is the only one that backs tracks.”
“That's the only challenging chase, everything else is too easy,” he continued. “So now, they say ‘well the fox is the most reasonable animal, let's try a human animal, see how reasonable he is.’”
“Guaranteed!” Rogan said in agreement.
“They want to challenge reasonability,” Tyson finished.
Aside from discussing Tyson’s outlandish theory, the pair also spoke about his pet tigers, as well as his psychedelic trip on DMT.
