Mike Tyson’s Surreal Prince Tribute Is a Real Head-Scratcher
The boxing great posted – how shall we say? – a rather bizarre tweet with a photo in which he photoshopped his face with the late great musician.
We’re not sure what’s more eye-raising here, the fact Tyson actually tweeted this or he knows how to use Photoshop.
Whatever the answer, the tweet, which lampoons Prince’s self-titled second album, was greeted with the type of disbelief and shock you’d expect.
@MikeTyson wtf Mike

@MikeTyson I know this is a bold statement given your history but this is the most tasteless thing you've ever done

Only @MikeTyson could face swap with Prince and get away with it

The sports world has been very vocal in expressing its sadness in the wake of Prince’s death, but this is just off the charts, although given Tyson’s personality can anyone really be surprised he’d pull a stunt like this?
What do you think? Was Iron Mike’s tweet crazy or do you think it was a nice gesture?
