Dana White couldn’t stomach the ‘(expletive) goofballs’ on ‘Tiger King,’ bailed after two episodes

New, comments

By his own admission, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White does watch a lot of television, which is understandable when you consider he’s charged with running the biggest mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion on the planet.

But surely not even White could resist the hot mess that was “Tiger King,” right?

“I tried to watch ‘Tiger King,’” White told UFC Unfiltered (transcribed by MMA Junkie). “I don’t have Netflix or any of that (expletive). I turned it on and it ends and I’m like, ‘Wait a minute. There’s (expletive) more than one of these? I’ve got to watch more than one of this stupid (expletive)? I watched No. 1 and No. 8. Bunch of (expletive) goofballs, man. There is no way I’m watching (expletive) eight episodes of this (expletive).”

I guess that means he won’t be approving this orange-and-white walkout.

The “Tiger King” documentary is about a deranged lunatic who keeps oppressed animals in cages and charges the public to come and gawk at them, then uses the attention of adoring fans to further his own interests while pushing cheap merchandise.

I dunno, I figured that would be right up White’s alley.
