Mike Perry isn’t happy with Michael Jai White, and the UFC fighter recently called for a backyard brawl with the actor following his comments about the late Kimbo Slice. A few days later, and Perry continued to attack the actor on social media, this time even using a racial slur.
“Blood and bone,” Perry wrote, referring to White’s movie. “more like b—h ass n— @MichaelJaiWhite”
Blood and bone more like bitch ass nigga @MichaelJaiWhite— Platinum Mike Perry (@PlatinumPerry) January 7, 2020
Perry doubled down on his follow up tweet, saying that he called the actor the n-word because he is “straight up being one.”
You have to make a big deal out of this. A white man said that to you because you straight up being one. Y’all can’t act like you don’t hear me. It was bull shit he was trying to slander a real gangsta so people would think he more than an actor. For #FLA we say #FOH— Platinum Mike Perry (@PlatinumPerry) January 7, 2020
You are already offended I’m alive and breathing.— Platinum Mike Perry (@PlatinumPerry) January 7, 2020
The UFC welterweight has had a history of similar issues in the past, including his team hurling racist insults at his Korean foe, and Perry using various slurs through the years.
While the attack on White obviously had a completely different intention, Tyron Woodley once gave his fellow Florida-based fighter in Perry a pass, since he called him the n-word in an inclusive manner. Others, like UFC vet Gerald Harris, still took offense to him using the slur, but Perry says he “can’t do shit about it anyways.”
I’m not the first white boy sayin nigga and you can’t do shit about it anyways. You actin dumb right now so stfu— Platinum Mike Perry (@PlatinumPerry) May 25, 2018
Perry also previously stated that if a young white man says (the n-word), “be prepared to defend yourself.”
