Popular UFC flyweight has decided to take a stand on homelessness, but his views are less than cheritable.

Regardless of how he meant it, that first tweet was insanely stupid.

Especially considering he was homeless at one point.

Yeah, no way can that be taken in a good light. That's why twitter isn't good for taking a stance, being as you can't fit the meat of your argument into 140 characters. If it was a longer facebook post that outlined his own issues and rise out of the junkie/homeless cycle, would be hardcore, but at least have a positive spin.

Well put. There's a HUGE difference there.

Funny how his justification is that he used to be homeless...So that's like a pass to be a giant dick towards homeless people ? So since i used to be a baby and cry and sleep all day, Now i have the right to tweet and be a dick towards babies when they cry and sleep all day ?

Pretty silly of him but his rawness is what has earned him a good deal of twitter followers.

It'll be funny when the baldfather chews him out considering DW dressed like a bum for a commercial or some such thing.

He's already issued an apology and clarified his stance on the subject http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2013/10/2/4795534/ufc-ian-mccall-apologizes-tweet-hate-the-homeless

LOL, yeah right

Junkies and homeless are 2 different things.

Sure you can be homeless and a junkie...but i know a lot of junkies that still work and have homes...

fail of an apology IMO.

He has said some douche type shit on Joe Rogans podcast before, so this isnt really that surprising.

This instantly made me think of the scene in 'American Psycho' where Bateman murders the homeless man in the alley....

If you don't have anything nice to tweet, don't tweet anything.

"While arguably more inflamatory, Dana White roundly dismissed the comments as "stupid" but also said that he "wouldn't suspend him for having an asinine opinion."

I'm pretty sure he has done that before
