However, in an exclusive statement to Atlanta Black Star, Tyson’s team said that that wasn’t true. The meme showed a photo of Mike leaning on Mikey, and the words read, “Mike Tyson is ready to pay $10 million dollars to any guy who marries his daughter.”
“Where she at? I’ll tear her ass up then go shopping plus she’s kinda cute,” Blackson responded.
Blackson also sent a direct message to Mike, which he later shared on social media.
“If this is true, I think I’m finally ready to settle down,” wrote Blackson. “I know I’ve been dipping n dapping a few snow bunnies and Asian persuasion but I’m ready for your beautiful queen.”
“I’m ready to give u some grandkids that will have the complexion of Tyson Beckford, knowledge of Cicely Tyson, talk like you Mike Tyson and hopefully not built like Tyson Fury,” he added. “I really don’t give a f–k about the money but I’ll take it. Waiting to hear from you father in law sir.”
He then said that Tyson shot back with his own direct message and hurled a bevy of insults at Blackson.
“Listen u black little b—h,” wrote Tyson. “This s–t ain’t real and soon as I find the person that started that meme, imma knock them the f–k out so make sure it ain’t you burnt roach looking b—h. My daughter is happily in a relationship with a nice looking man so she’s not interested in an overcooked hotdog like you.”
“Next time you do my podcast, imma knock the black off u,” Tyson added. “It might take a year because you black as f–k. Gtfo my dm before I get your black ass deported you geico lizard looking b—h.”
Blackson then responded and expressed concern.
“Omg wtf did I get myself into,” he wrote. “Tyson I’m sorry please don’t hit me I’m just a beech beech ass n—-.”
Tyson’s publicist reached out to our team saying, “He (Mike Tyson) did not dm the comic on IG.”
People seemed generally entertained by the back-and-forth, and they debated about who got the best of whom.
“F—–g hilarious lol,” one person tweeted.
“Tyson is pretty good at insults. He kinda shredded him,” wrote someone else.
“If there are a few people in the world that no one should ever f–k with one of them has to be Mike Tyson..one of the others is the daughter of Mike Tyson,” another person commented.
