Jewish groups Fury at Tyson after boxer's anti-semitic rant on YouTube
Boxer Tyson Fury may face a fresh inquiry after a new rant captured on video
The Campaign Against Antisemitism has submitted a formal complaint about the World heavyweight champion’s behaviour to the British Boxing Board of Control.
Fury has posted a video on YouTube in which he claims that Jews “own all the banks, all the papers, all the TV stations”. He said “everyone just do what you can, listen to the government follow everybody like sheep, be brainwashed by all the Zionist, Jewish people who own all the banks, all the papers all the TV stations. Be brainwashed by them all.”
Jonathan Sacerdoti, Director of Communications at the Campaign Against Antisemitism said: “Tyson Fury’s statements about Jewish people are offensive and racist. There should be no place for antisemitism in sport. Just as antisemitism is being stamped out from football, the same should apply to boxing. He should be barred from boxing and referred to the British Boxing Board of Control.
“This is not his first offence; he specialises in outrageous offensive and racist slurs. Behaviour like this should prompt his sponsors to withdraw their backing. Britain does not tolerate or support racism. These specific antisemitic slurs are centuries old, and his use of them today in 2016 shows ignorance and malice.”
In the Tyson broadcast, which is littered with expletives, he takes aim at paedophiles, bisexuals, sex swap ops, and what he believes is a lack of morals in society.
Last year he caused anger with his outspoken opinions on homosexuality, abortion and paedophilia.
He was reported to GMP for an alleged ‘hate crime’ but after an investigation no action was taken.
He was warned over his future conduct by the British Boxing Board of Control who said Tyson he had “heavy responsibilities to avoid making controversial, non-boxing comments.”
However, in an interview posted on You Tube, Fury shows no sign of having mellowed.
He said: “It’s like you’re a freak of nature if you’re normal, you’re the odd one out nobody else. What’s normal? I’ll just get myself changed into a woman that’s normal isn’t it today call myself Tysina or something like that, put a wig on...”
“I don’t think it’s normal I think they’re freaks of nature.”
The MEN has contacted the British Board of Boxing for a comment.
