Forrest Griffin Jokes on Twitter About Rape....Backfires.

Here is the feed from Forrest Griffin's Twitter page.

@ForrestGriffin
Rape is the new missionary


@TinaMarieTXs
Yeah just unfollowed @ForrestGriffin bc he said rape is the new missionary, completely inappropriate.

Forrest then tweeted that following him was a privilege. A woman then tweeted at him that she was a rape survivor and he sent out this.

@ForrestGriffin
I’m sorry I’m gonna go ahead and put myself of twitter restriction until next week.



 Now here is Dana White's Response
Bloody Elbow - “It wasn’t a joke. I’m glad you asked me that question. What happened was, I contacted Forrest and Forrest is a mess now about this whole thing. Believe me, take it from a guy who has been in this situation. What happened was, Forrest Griffin said he woke up that morning and turned on his television and the whole thing about Paterno and what’s going on over there at Penn State, he said he literally switched the channel to another channel and they were talking about a woman who had been raped. The third channel he went to was another story about rape. His thing was that ‘rape is the new missionary,’ like it’s vanilla like it’s normal, when you change the channel it’s on every channel.
… you don’t go out on Twitter where you can only do so many characters and say something like that. Then once everyone started attacking him, he started attacking back on Twitter. It’s one of those situations. Let me tell you what man, I’m the first guy who always says ‘people will make mistakes’ and this and that will happen. Forrest Griffin is a very, very good human being.”
Talk about your ultimate backfires.  Yea, this is a hard time for everyone especially rape victims.  Rape is just something you can never joke about.  Sorry Forrest, we know your not a bad guy, but you came out at a bad time with a joke that nobody could really get a laugh out of.  You probably should take some time off twitter and realize what it's used for.

Thanks to Off the Bench for the links
