Convicted rapist and registered sex offender Mike Tyson will tomorrow attend a session of the Romanian Senate. At the invitation of PNL Senator Ben-Oni Ardelean, the general secretary of the Senate, Tyson will apparently be ‘saluted’.
Why? Why is such an appalling human being even in Romania in the first place?
To answer our own question: he is promoting an energy drink, Black Energy.
Now another question: Which genius at which PR agency decided that a rapist would be the perfect image for their product? (Which we notice they are marketing as ‘the sexiest energy drink’).
We took a brief look at how the delightful Romanian sporting press is reporting the visit.
Gazeta Sporturilor makes no mention to his conviction, merely ‘scandals.’ Pro Sport doesn’t even go that far, simply reporting that ‘Iron Mike’ will meet stars of Romanian boxing.
Making a rapist feel right at home. Another victory for women’s rights in Romania.
We closed the comments on this post because the way it was going we were not too far away from the first ‘they’re all asking for it’ type of intervention.
