Mike Tyson takes his own medicine. He came out and did that interview He didn't hide behind some PR statement or some spin. Four days later, he came out and explained, and gave his reasoning as to what had happened. I'll tell you one of the insights in the book and talking to goats. Grope me a letter when he was in the penitentiary, a hand written letter for five pages long song. And on the second page came to my house. Inexplicably, we weren't social. It had been opened by penitentiary officials on the second page. It said, Mr Gray. That's what he called me. They will let me go tomorrow. If I will admit to this rape, however, I did not rape this woman and I will never admit to something I didn't do next paragraph. However, there are four or five other things that I've done throughout the course of my life. They're worse than what I'm accused of. Therefore, I feel I'm in the right place At this time. I did the first interview with him when he came out of jail, and I asked him could I repeat that letter on the air or was a private He said, Ask me anything you want. So I asked him that question What was worse. He looked at his lawyer looked back at me, he said. It's probably best not to answer that question on national television, because I don't know the statue of limitations. But let me tell you what I wrote. You is true. And then in the special, I asked him about that again. What was worse, Mike and he said, Karma, Buddy Karma, all the things that I did. Jail was good for me Jail with fascination for me.
