Dana White to Step Back From the Spotlight in the Wake of ‘Other-F-Word’ Scandal

During an appearance on the CBS Radio show "The MMAsh," Dana White confirmed an earlier report which suggested he would be taking a reduced media role with the UFC due to the overwhelming amount of negative attention he received after a recent hate-speech-laced video-blog. Some key quotes, via FiveOuncesofPain:

“Not only have I not changed my mind about (not doing) the video blogs, I had a reality show too called American Promoter. We had a done deal to do it and now I’m not going to do that either…It’s too much, man. It’s way too much. You see the video blog. It follows me all day (and) all night. We actually shot the pilot for American Promoter. We already shot that. That’s worse than the blog. They’ve got a full camera crew; boom guy; (and) a couple producers surrounding me all day and all night. This incident that happened, it’s just, I’m like ‘no way, it’s too much.’… I’m going to be me. Me being me, I’m going to be me and I just don’t need that 24/7.”

(Translation: "If pussies get offended when I drop the words ‘faggot’ and ‘bitch’ in my angry rants, then fuck it all, because I gotta be me.")


Well, at least that saves us from having to watch another show about the fabulous life of a fight promoter. But I’m curious to learn how the pilot of Dana’s show was worse than his last video blog. Does he branch out to racial slurs, or was he actually filmed throwing beer bottles at homosexuals from his car? The world may never know. And now we won’t even have his video blogs to entertain us on slow news days.

I know it sucks having to watch the things you say so that large groups of people aren’t offended — but unfortunately that’s part of the job description if you’re the president and public face of a company. Ending the vlog-project and reality show hurts the UFC from a publicity standpoint, and it doesn’t force Dana to act professionally from now on. Is this really the best resolution to the situation?

the gays are using the sponsors as a conduit to achieve their political views of communism, clearly quite evident

And just for the record, free speach is very much protected, including that of gay, lesbian and womens groups, and the UFC's sponsors. The government didn't tell them what they could say (fascism, really, more than communism), sponsors did (capitalism)

As innappropriate as I think Dana White's comments were, they weren't the real source of the outrage. People, even those that are the heads of large companies, get away with saying far worse. They just don't say them about reporters. Calling out and intimidating reporters generates very bad press and causes every other relevant reporter to gang up on you. This creates a bigger issue, and starts to filter into the actual media where interest groups (who mostly hate the sport) find out, and get up in your sponsors faces. It's bad business. It's bad business to use words like that in a public setting, but it's moronic to use them against a reporter.

Oh, and a quick response to the seeming majority of the posters here? Why is it that people should just roll over and accept whatever you or Dana White wants to call them? Should Loretta Hunt, or any of the Gay or Womans groups that were offended just take it because you think so? In this case, they're fighting back, and they won. Good for them. That's was this sport is about, right? The problem is that in the real world, peole don't settle all of their disputes with fists and kicks. They use courts and columns, words and contacts. So maybe Dana should quit being a bitch if he can't handle a little hardball. Why should he worry about Harley-Davidson, those pc faggots? He doesn't need their money.

My last name is Gay (literally) so should I be offended when someone refers to homosexuals as gays?

Fuck no, because I'm not a whiny pussy. So what if he called some guy a faggot? Dana White can call people whatever he wants until the world stops using my name for homosexuals and pretending that's politically correct. Fags!

Dana could recover a lot of lost ground if he was "accidently" filmed doing 69 with Joe Rogan. I know Joe would go along, he is a good company man. After that, all the skinny, weakling, snivelling gays would love Dana! Do it, Dana!!! You might even give up horny sluts after tasting Joe's meat log!
canadian hoser- April 7, 2009 at 6:33 am
It's not even about what he said, it is about the fact that the ufc is not allowing the fighters representatives to get into the locker rooms with the fighters. Dana and co can infuence these fighters to make bad desicions on upcoming fights, without there managers and reps knowing whats on the table. checkout what sherdog

sponsors put pressure on the UFC and Dana is forced to behave.its as simple as that..and the fertitas would be filing for bankruptcy for station casinos on april the 15th so they dont have any leverage on this issue..so the 3 of them (inc danA) officially lost theyr balls....they bowed down to the gays and lesbian movement lol

Woohooo! Its time to celebrate! Spineless White is going down! He couldn't take more than 14 hours of bad press before he crumbled like Slice after 14 secs of octagon stress.
(Yeah I know its more like a circle, but that doesn't fuckin rhyme does it?)

people need to chill out and let shit go. if every fag, nigger, whop, spic n jew in the world went off when someone called them a name we would be in a pretty segregated society. Dana is someone who believes in a thing called the Constitution and reserved his right to FREE SPEECH no matter the forum and is allowed to say what he wants. Besides how many fags really watch MMA? cant be that big of the market, right. Its about fighting not about how shit happens outside of the cage anyway. I think that Sherdog has provoked this bullshit and need to apologize for their "Anonymous" source bullshit. PS fire the cunt who made up the story to begin with, she wrote a bullshit article about him and deserves to join the ranks of the unemployed.

I'm a fag (queer, homo, bi or whatever you wanna call me), I heard what Dana said, and I heard the apology. It seemed sincere. I have no problem with anyone using any word as long as I know their true feelings, and he made that clear in his apology. The thing some people have to realize is, words mean things, and if someone doesn't know your TRUE feelings, they may think you using the word fag because you don't like gays. It's the same reason people may think you were racist if you said the n word.

To all the people on this forum who really are homophobic, you have the right to dislike anyone or any group you like. Just realize though you may be grappling/sparing with a fag (dun dun dunnnn!) and not know it! >:-)

Back in the day, calling a police officer "cop" or "copper" was akin to calling a black "nigger." I'm just sayin, you homosexually phallic-breathed female dogs.
The Harvester- April 6, 2009 at 5:04 pm
Hahaha, its too bad I probably would have watched that show. I always find it funny when we expect rich/famous people to act differently then the average person. Dana is not a role model and doesn't pretend to be. The vlog was supposed to capture him in personal behind the scene moments. Its not like he said those comments in a press release or during an event.

I am confused as to how anyone could be outraged about this? Everyone is saying "you have to be proffesional!?!?!? he is the president !! omg!1 omg" You can't expect everyone to act like a preppy role model. "what about the kids!!". These powerful groups in America jumping on what people say are getting out of control. The All Sharptons and the like need to take a deep breathe and chill.

I think we should all give a sarcastic slow clap to all those pressing this issue and killed what could have been a pretty decent show (American Promoter).

Its Dana Fucking White not Mary Poppins grow the fuck up.

Motherfucker! Even though he's a god damn CEO, I don't think he should have to start censoring anti-gay comments, cuz then the retards will start complaining, the cunt ass bitches (oh wait are they already complaining?) will then go off, and sooner or later we can't say anything

I wish Dana didn't give in to the gays and stood by his ideology to offend everyone equally

it would have been so awesome if he did an angry rant directed towards the gays after they asked for an apology, he would send a strong message that he does not negotiate with the gay terrorist
Chris S- April 6, 2009 at 4:31 pm
Well colour me a retarded fucking idiot then. You are correct, he is the face of a company and should behave appropriately; the fact remains ANYBODY should be able to say what they like without a group of pansies pretending they've had their feelings hurt.

Erm, and in the best tradition of the CP comments section, 'fuck you douche bag motherfucking retarded fag licking spunk muncher'.

Hey, just trying to fit in.
Rainer- April 6, 2009 at 4:23 pm
Chris you fucking idiot, you're not the face of a multi-million dollar company where your words are heard by thousands of fucking people. Comparing the shit you say to Dana's is just retarded

i do agree with your point about the gay community being a bunch of vocal pussy ass whinging bitches that need to make some noise

i couldn't have said it better myself
Chris S- April 6, 2009 at 4:15 pm
It is fucking ridiculous. I use the word 'fag' all the time, I insult my good friends with it and vice versa. It doesn't mean shit, I respect gay people and have known a few over the years, I haven't a bad word to say about them. It's unfortunate that a few vocal pussy ass whinging bitches need to make some noise. Political correctness is way out of control.

DavesNotHereMan:
You aren't going to make fun of gay men with lines about licking pussy.

On a serious note, all my gay friends use the word "fag" to describe... well, fags.
