Jake Paul Keeps It Real With Honest Breakdown Of Close Friend Mike Tyson's Plane Fight

Jake Paul has taken to Twitter to support friend Mike Tyson after the boxing legend was filmed hitting a fan on a plane.


Footage emerged on Thursday of Tyson unloading punches on a passenger who provoked him.

It's claimed 'Iron Mike' enjoyed a friendly exchange with the duo on a flight from San Francisco to Florida but they started to 'harass' the 55-year-old.

Paul tweeted a simple message to anyone thinking of trying the same thing.

"If you’re being heckled in public like Mike Tyson was you should legally get a hall pass to beat someone's ass," he said.

"This generation thinks they can get away with anything."

Paul and Tyson became friends after the YouTube fought on the undercard of Tyson's exhibition bout with Roy Jones Jr. in 2020.

A fight between the pair has been rumoured in the past.

Tyson recently joked it'd take $1 billion for him to face 'The Problem Child' in the ring.

The former world champion has managed to stay out of controversy in recent years but this time, the trouble came to him.

A member of Tyson's team claims those involved in the incident threw a bottle at Tyson which annoyed 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."

Police confirmed to ESPN they were called to the scene and spoke to two men, who were not identified. One of them was left with a bloody forehead.

"That subject provided minimal details of the incident and refused to cooperate further with the police investigation," an officer explained.

Tyson left the plane shortly after the brawl and was pictured outside his Miami hotel room later on Thursday.

'The Baddest Man on the Planet' was in San Francisco celebrating 4/20 and smoked pot on the famous Hippie Hill.

Tyson is a marijuana entrepreneur and open about his usage of the drug.
