The UFC recently rewarded Forrest Griffin $5,000 for his "creativity" on Twitter, but he went too far on a tweet yesterday, saying, "Rape is the new missionary."
When a fan unfollowed him and called him out on what he considered a joke, he responded, "Keep it to yourself." Later, he deleted the tweet and said, "I'm sorry, I'm gonna go ahead and put myself on Twitter restriction until next week."
Yep, when "creativity" leads to jokes about sexual assault, that's a good time to keep your mouth shut.
Let's just be 100 percent clear on something: rape isn't funny. Every time a joke is made about it, victims are reminded of their trauma. If you think it's funny, you clearly have never been held down and forced to have sex against your will. If you think it's funny, you've never seen the path of destruction it causes in a victim's life. If you think it's funny, you have no empathy for the 81K reported rape victims in the U.S. every year.
I don't think Forrest Griffin is that cold of a pe...
