Heavyweight champ Fury sparks fresh row with rape, anti-Semitic rant
LONDON, United Kingdom – World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury caused fresh controversy on Friday, May 13 after suggesting that rape and bestiality will one day be made legal in his latest foul-mouthed video rant.
The British boxer also suggested anyone who disagreed with him, was likely to have been "brainwashed by all the Zionist, Jewish people who own all the banks, all the papers, all the TV stations."
Fury has previously been accused of sexism and homophobia, including controversial remarks about Olympic heptathlon champion Jessica Ennis-Hill.
The new footage came in a YouTube interview posted by SportsViewLondon.
"I think it'll be perfectly normal in the next 10 years to have sexual relationships with your animals at home - you know, your pets, your cats and dogs and all that, so that will be legal," said Fury.
"You are already allowed to marry your animals and stuff," added Fury, who will defend his title against Ukraine's Wladimir Klitschko, the man he beat to become world champion, in his home city of Manchester, northern England, on July 9.
"It is going to happen, though, isn't it? Whatever you can think of that's bad, will be made legal, because that's what the devil wants."
He also said: "Women are even taking overnight bags out with them, so they are going out just to get laid. Just like men usually do. Women are worse than that.
"They are taking their overnight bags because they know they are going to pull somebody and get at it that night. Filth, pure filth." – Rappler.com
