UFC announcer Chael Sonnen had to backtrack after some tasteless remarks he made about pop star Rihanna and Floyd Mayweather created a controversy.

I thought the comment was funny.

Don't understand why people get so defensive about things

If you want to be butthurt, at least leave Mayweather out of it. Why apologize for any comments made at his expense? He went to jail for a reason and couldn't even be a man about it; acting like he was the victim, needing special treatment, had low self esteem as a result etc etc.

One thing that does make me chuckle is that it says FS apologizes, not Chael apologizes.

That was not funny at all, and I don't mean from the perspective of women beaten by spouses as the butt of the joke, although I'm sure some of them wouldn't like it. It's just not funny in general. More people are probably laughing at FOX having to issue an apology then there are laughing at that used old joke, it was just as typically lame and un-comedic as Sonnen always is. Hard to believe someone so lame has so many people wrapped around his finger, scary even.

Not funny.

But also not offensive. Honestly, it would be nice if everyone had a thicker skin, but I swear some people seem to have no skin at all.

I thought this was decently funny, but regardless, I don't see a problem with it. Just more political correctness.

LOL I thought it was quite funny

First I want to say that I do not advocate violence against women in any way.

Also, I will add that you can't make a song about S&M and then complain when you get beaten up.

Agreed on all of the above. That was funny. I've heard way more fucked out jokes, that one was pretty good. Also, if I am not mistaken she put out that S&M song after she got beat up... bitch be crazy.

Fuck Mayweather, fuck Chris Brown and fuck Rihanna.
