Mike Tyson launched a foul-mouthed tirade at Canadian anchor Nathan Downer after his rape conviction was brought up.

The CP24 news presenter was interviewing Tyson about his autobiography and tour, the Undisputed Truth, and asked him about meeting Toronto’s infamous Mayor Rob Ford and whether his association would hurt Ford's re-election chances.

"Some of your critics would say, ‘There’s a race for mayor. We know you’re a convicted rapist. This could hurt his campaign.’ How would you respond to that?” asked Downer.

"It’s so interesting, you come off like a nice guy," said Tyson. "But that was really a piece of shit, that comment. Fuck you. That was a piece of shit."
