In the interview Tyson said to his interviewer: ‘You come across like a nice guy but you’re really a piece of s***. F*** you, that (question) was a piece of s***.’
Downer then puts up his hands and says ‘Hey, come on. We’re doing live TV now.’
Downer then asks Tyson about his one-man show ‘Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth.’ Tyson appeared on CP24 with the Canadian promoter of the show.
Tyson tells Downer the show it ‘speaks for itself’ before the promoter talks about it.
When asked about whether he found acting or boxing more nerve racking, Tyson responded: ‘It’s more nerve-wracking talking to a rat piece of s*** like you.’
‘Come on, Mike,’ Downer responds.
Tyson insults him again before Downer wraps up the interview and thanks Tyson for coming as Tyson swears at him.
In a tweet after the incident, Downer said it was unfortunate his question hurt Tyson’s feelings and that it wasn’t his intention.
‘I’m okay everybody,’ Downer tweeted.
