“It focuses on what can happen when there is an emotionally charged, rush to judgement….” Wow! Good one, Dick (sarcasm). Hmmm…I wonder if that is a back-handed way of saying the survivors and others who care about them are rushing to judgement, over this casting, based on emotions.
How terrible of us to want a show that has helped thousands, if not millions of survivors, to show some sensitivity and integrity by not casting a convicted rapist and well-known misogynist (more sarcasm).
Interesting how no one has picked up on that fact that while Tyson is out and about, talking about what a changed man he is, he is also slamming Robin Givens every chance he gets. In my book, nice guys do not speak publically about their ex-wife’s sex life.
Mike Tyson has also been quoted as saying he enjoys hurting women and the best punch he ever landed was on ex-wife Robin Givens.
A more recent quote (a little over 1 1/2 years ago) has Mr. Tyson quoted as saying “Glen Rice is a wonderful man,” Tyson said.“He’s a wonderful guy. You want her to be with somebody like [Dennis] Rodman getting up … in there. Pushing her guts up in the back of her head!”
Tyson went on to say that Rice was too “non-threatening.”
“Glen Rice is a nice, mellow, docile man, non-threatening guy,” he said.“You want someone like Rodman — yeah baby! Let’s get that donkey in here now.[laughter] Just imagine Palin with a big old black stallion ripping. Yeehaw!”
Need I say more?
