UFC CEO Dana White appeared on “This Past Weekend” with Theo Von and talked about advertisers trying to cancel those supporting Donald Trump or Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
Von explained how he had RFK Jr. on his podcast and companies called him afterward saying they’re not advertising on that episode.
White appeared baffled and said RFK Jr. is a “Democrat with common sense.”
“He’s like an old-school Democrat,” White said.
“This is America. You can f****** have whoever you want on your podcast. You can do whatever the f*** you want to do. Imagine a sponsor that’s sponsoring you, calling you and telling you that you can’t have this guy,” White said.
White asked Von which sponsor he alluded to, but the podcast host said he couldn’t remember.
The UFC CEO said the same thing happened to him when he posted a video for Donald Trump on his personal social media.
“This happened to me. I posted a video for Trump on my personal social media and one of our big sponsors called and said ‘take that down,'” White explained.
“You know what I said? Go f*** yourself,” White added.
“You vote for whoever you want to vote for, and I’ll vote for whoever I want to vote for. That’s how this works. I don’t even care who you’re voting for. It’s none of my f****** business, but f*** you. Don’t ever f****** call me and tell me who to vote for,” he continued.
