While talking about the situation with special guest Brendan Schaub, Logan Paul explained that he can understand Mike Tyson getting angry.
Logan explained: “I can relate to this because when you take a selfie with someone, that’s going to be the end of our interaction. Maybe if I’m interested in the conversation ill continue, but if we’re sitting next to each other on a plane and it’s clear I’m not into the conversation — stop.
“The fact that this guy was making videos and being obnoxious and then got to the point of talking s**t… well… play stupid games, win stupid prizes.”

Logan isn’t the first influencer to chime in on Mike Tyson’s viral video. In fact, brother Jake Paul defended the boxing champion just a day after the clip gained popularity.
In a tweet, Jake said: “If you’re being heckled in public like Mike Tyson was, you should legally get a hall pass to beat someone’s a**. This generation thinks they can get away with anything.”
Just a couple of days after Jake’s tweet, Joe Rogan also came out in Tyson’s defense, explaining that the guy earned it.
