The Sandy Hook Truther Movement conspiracy-theory video dissects media coverage of the Dec. 14 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting and questions the official narrative of that day in Newtown, Conn.
The video registered close to nine million YouTube views by the afternoon of Jan. 16.
"Ronda's the kind of person that doesn't take everything at face value, and doesn't have 100 percent faith in all the news that's put out there by the mainstream press," Rousey's manager Darin Harvey told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).
Rousey also chimed in by calling the video "interesting" on her personal Facebook fan page.
"I never wanted to insult," Rousey said. "It hurt anyone, just found the video interesting- as did many others. I apologize it was never my intention to insult or be insensitive of the issue."
"I don't think that she did anything so horrible," Harvey said. "I think what she was doing is retweeting something that gave a different perspective as to what transpired on that day. I don't think anything in that video denied that it happened."
Rousey noted that she does not necessarily endorse the video's theories, but figured "asking questions and doing research is more patriotic than blindly accepting what you're told."
"I don't know if it's the truth or not," Harvey said. "I'm not an investigator, but it seemed to me that if that Bushmaster (rifle) really was sitting in the trunk of a car, and the guy killed himself inside the school, how would the gun end up in the trunk of a car? Maybe it's just bulls--- facts. I didn't investigate it. I think Ronda thought it was interesting and retweeted it, and that was the extent of it. I don't think she was saying the mainstream press was wrong. It was just a different perspective."
Rousey fights Liz Carmouche on Feb. 23 at UFC 157.
