UFC star Israel Adesanya has been slammed by New Zealand’s deputy prime minister for making ‘flippant comments’ about r3pe after sending a grim taunt to a rival fighter.
The middleweight champion has received significant backlash for his offensive video after hitting out at Kevin Holland by saying in a now-deleted Instagram post: “Bro, I will f***ing r3pe you.”

And the New Zealander has now been criticised by his own country’s deputy prime minister Grant Robertson, who has taken a dim view on his words and appeared to call on the UFC to take action against him.

“There is never a time to make flippant comments about r3pe. It’s just not something anybody should do.”

“I’m sure Israel understands that. I believe he has deleted the tweet in question. It will be up to the UFC as to what they do.

“But I would certainly be making clear to him, and to anybody actually, that we have to take r3pe seriously.

“It’s not an issue that anyone should be making jokes or flippant comments about at all.”

Adesanya, who was born in Nigeria but has been a New Zealand citizen since he was 10, did not respond to the comments directly but appeared unperturbed by the criticism.

He tweeted a gif alongside the words, “Incoming click bait NZ media in 3, 2, 1… This is what it’s all about…CLOUT!!”

This is not the first time the 31-year-old has landed himself in hot water for disrespectful comments.

Last February he had to issue an apology after saying his then-upcoming opponent Yoel Romero would ‘crumble like the twin towers’ against him and vowed to be ‘more careful with my words in the future’.

Did that useless New Zealand prime minister listened to Colby Covington vs Usman before their fight?
Was Colby not saying racist stuffs to usman?
Did we take it personal?
If Israel adesanya is white , do you think this brain damage new Zealand minister will show concern about his speech?
This is UFC world where people voice out their heart just to intimidate the opponents before the fight. All those comments are not taken to heart among fighters.
We have seen it all and we are use to their racist BS

Why has US president  it condemned the street nuisance by McGregor? Someone should tell the hollow brain NZ deputy pm to go dick himself.
