Footage emerged on Thursday of former boxing heavyweight champion Tyson unloading punches on a passenger who provoked him.
'Iron Mike' was reportedly friendly with the pair on his San Francisco to Florida flight before they started to 'harass' him.
White is no stranger to travelling in the air with Tyson and shared that famous clip captioned: "Hey dummies, for future reference, this is how you stay alive when bumping into @MikeTyson on an airplane."
Tyson slaps White on the shoulder and takes his seat on the aircraft, along with his neck pillow simply because he liked it more.
White can be seen pulling his face on the opposite side before looking out the window. The pair are great friends and the video was shot as a gag, which went viral a number of years ago.
A representative of 'Iron Mike' addressed the incident in a statement and claimed he had an object thrown at him.
"Unfortunately, Mr. Tyson had an incident on a flight with an aggressive passenger who began harassing him," it reads.
"And threw a water bottle at him while he was in his seat."
The man is said to have needed medical attention and contacted police after the incident.
Tyson exited the plane shortly after the confrontation.
Police confirmed to ESPN they were called to the scene and spoke to two men, who were not identified.
"That subject provided minimal details of the incident and refused to cooperate further with the police investigation," an officer explained.
Tyson is regarded as one of the greatest fighters of all time and made a shock return to the ring for an exhibition bout with Roy Jones Jr. in 2020.
'The Baddest Man on the Planet' has been confronted by fans in the past and he elbowed one in the chest while in attendance for Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao in 2015.
Someone attempted to grab Tyson for a selfie against his will and he wasn't best pleased.
The 55-year-old aptly wrote in a 2020 Facebook post which has since been taken down: "Social media made y'all way to comfortable with disrespecting people and not getting punched in the face for it."
