#MikeTyson opened up about being sexually abused by a man when he was just a child.
In an interview with ESPN’s Jeremy Schapp, he says he was grabbed by a man who pulled him into a building, but he did not go into details about what the man did to him.
“Well I don’t like to talk about that, I like to keep that where it was in the past, but I was molested as a child.
It was no one’s business to know, people just don’t talk about it because to some people they believe it’s demasculating [sic] them,” Mike said. “I learned that it doesn’t make you any less of a man because it happened.”
We hope that Tyson gets the proper help he needs to be able to deal with this horrific incident. Victims of sexual abuse can deal with the effects years later in their life.
