According to a Sept. 4 tweet from War Machine, the Bellator MMA star is back in the news for a series of outrageously offensive tweets he posted about him taking pleasure from driving past a cop's funeral.
Just one month after getting a scolding from Bellator officials for tweeting a rape joke, he was back to his old tricks with a tweet about finding joy while driving past a police officer's funeral.
"Just drove by a Cop funeral...yeah, today's gonna be a good day. #ACAB," Mr. Machine tweeted.
After much backlash from fight fans, War Machine continued with a series of wacky responses.
“@JustinRE42: @WarMachine170 Thats the worst thing a professional athlete has ever tweeted. You're an awful person” no, I've said much worse," he tweeted minutes later.
Later in the thread, he argued that it was okay to say because America is all about having freedom of speech.
When fight fans began to ask what he would do if he needed help from a cop, he responded by saying he never needs help and that he protects himself just fine.
"So wait 'freedom of speech' means the government 'lets' you say whatever you want but yet you can still be punished for what u say? Ummm???" War Machine argued.
A few posts later, War Machine continued his rant against cops.
"Just because someone close to you is a cop doesn't mean they aren't violating people's rights every day at work. #JUSTSAYING," he tweeted.
"Cops are the great ENABLERS of evil government, they will enforce ANY law passed. Holocaust not possible without cops and the like. #TRUTH."
Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney hasn't yet responded to War Machine's comments, but it's unlikely that he'll fine the standout welterweight.
Unlike the UFC, Bellator takes a more relaxed approach to social media, allowing fighters to speak their mind freely.
