Dana White Gives Three Word Answer When Sponsor Told Him To Take Down Donald Trump Video

UFC CEO Dana White had choice words when a sponsor told him to remove a Donald Trump video from his personal social media.

White discussed the experience on a recent episode of “This Past Weekend” with Theo Von.

Von went into detail about his experience with a sponsor saying they won’t advertise on an episode he did with independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

White said it was nonsense and that RFK Jr. is like an “old-school Democrat.”

“This is America. You can f****** have whoever you want on your podcast. You can do whatever the f*** you want to do. Imagine a sponsor that’s sponsoring you, calling you and telling you that you can’t have this guy,” White said.

Then, White recounted the story of a sponsor telling him to remove a video of Donald Trump.

“This happened to me. I posted a video for Trump on my personal social media and one of our big sponsors called and said ‘take that down,’” White said.

“You know what I said? Go f*** yourself,” White explained.

“You vote for whoever you want to vote for, and I’ll vote for whoever I want to vote for. That’s how this works. I don’t even care who you’re voting for. It’s none of my f****** business, but f*** you. Don’t ever f****** call me and tell me who to vote for,” he added.


Independent reports:

“I’m at a point now in my life and my career where I want to be with people that I’m aligned with. It’s not just about the money; it is about the money, because it’s a sponsorship deal, but it’s not just [about the money]. I’m not going to take a bigger offer if it’s not something that I am aligned with and I don’t 100 per cent believe in.

“When you do a sponsorship deal with somebody, you have to look deep into who they are and who’s running the company, who’s making the decisions, and are you aligned?”

White, 54, is a known supporter of Trump and has spoken at the 77-year-old’s election rallies in the past.

On Saturday, Dana White walked into Madison Square Garden to watch UFC 295 alongside Donald Trump, Tucker Carlson, and Kid Rock.
