Former boxing champion Mike Tyson was part of a group that raised money for the Israeli military on November 16, 2023. The event happened in Miami, Florida.
The group that organized the event is called Friends of the Israel Defense Forces. They raised $10 million at the event. The money will go to support the Israeli military.
Most people, who are protesting against the inhumane actions of the Israeli military, are upset with Mike Tyson. They say the Israeli military has butchered the civilians in Gaza, especially children and women.
According to Washington Post and Al Jazeera, more than 11,000 people, including innocent children and women are dead as a result of Israeli forces attack. The recent attack being on a hospital raises lots of questions for stars like Mike Tyson.
Tyson, who’s a Muslim and was very attached to the late legendary Muslim American boxer, Muhammad Ali, is being criticized for supporting Israel and that Muhammad Ali would be ashamed of his actions.
This is not the first time famous athletes have supported Israel. Basketball player LeBron James and boxer Floyd Mayweather have supported Israel in the past.
This event has caused controversy on social media, especially on X (formerly Twitter). Some people are angry at Mike Tyson for raising money for the Israeli military.
