Forrest Griffin Makes Rape Comment On Twitter, Dana White Explains

Always one for a quick one-liner, Forrest Griffin took to his Twitter this week and made a comment that “rape was the new missionary” as news was breaking about the Penn State child abuse case.

Some of Griffin's follower's took offense to the remark but UFC President Dana White explained this week that it wasn't actually a joke and that Griffin was being serious:

“It wasn't a joke … 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 (Joe) 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.”
