New Zealand Bans Mike Tyson – Visa revoked over rape conviction
Mike Tyson isn’t going to be allowed into the country whose Maori people inspired his facial tattoo. The former boxing champ and convicted rapist had been due to visit New Zealand next month for an event in Auckland, but his visa was withdrawn after an outcry from women’s groups, reports Reuters. Government officials say they decided to revoke Tyson’s visa after a youth charity involved with the event withdrew its support for his visit. Days earlier, Prime Minister John Key had said he was personally opposed to Tyson’s visit, the Telegraph reports.
