UFC president Dana White had the choicest response to the backlash from the critics after gifting Kyle from Nelk Boys $250k on his birthday.
I’ll spend my money however the f**k I want to: Dana White
A couple of weeks back, Dana White gave a surprise gift of $250K to Kyle Forgeard, the co-founder of Canadian-American YouTube channel and entertainment company Nelk Boys, on his 28th birthday.
In the wake of the news breaking out to the masses, several UFC fighters took to social media to show their reaction to White’s eyebrow-raising birthday gift to Kyle. The reactions included UFC fandom on Twitter, aside from Aljamain Sterling, Dan Hardy, Alan Jouban, Louis Smolka, Jon Fitch- who called for such birthday gifts to UFC fighters as well.
White was asked about his response on the matter during a recent appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, when the UFC prez made it clear that he doesn’t want lecture from anyone on what he does with his money.
“I’m glad you asked me that question. Let me set the record straight. First of all, all these people on the internet – go f**k yourself,” said White, “I’ll spend my money however the f**k I want to spend my money.”
“If you look at what Kyle and the Nelk Boys have done, those kid have never asked me for anything, ever,” the UFC prez went on, “They couldn’t be better people. Kyle has done so many things for me. And believe me the $250K I gave him for his birthday does not cover the amount of things that kid has done for me.”
“So don’t count other people’s money and mind your own f**king business. “ALL THESE PEOPLE ON THE INTERNET GO F*CK YOURSELVES ; I’LL SPEND MY MONEY HOWEVER THE F*CK I WANT!” White added.
