Mike Tyson Today Show Video: 'I Was a Prostitute Hunter'
Mike Tyson & Spike Lee on the Today Show
Mike Tyson and director Spike Lee appeared on the Today Show to talk about their upcoming Broadway production (yes, Mike Tyson- Undisputed Truth is coming to Broadway).
When Anne Curry asked Mike Tyson to discuss his switch to a vegan diet, Tyson went off on the sort of tangent for which he is famous. Mike Tyson began discussing his predilection for prostitutes: "There was too many prison cells, too many jails, too many lawsuits, too many bankruptcies, too many women, too many venereal diseases, too many everything. I got tired. I really got tired of, you know, like every time a prostitute –- I would head back from a trip -- I had to sleep with her. I was a prostitute hunter!"
The best part of the Mike Tyson Today Show video, which you can see below, is Spike Lee's face as his actor takes the conversation off the rails and into a gully of awkwardness.
