Octomom Nadya Suleman And Shila From The Chio Morning Show Celebrity Pillow Fight Press Conference And Weigh In

TKO.

Following a week of backlash, Celebrity Boxing promoter Damon Feldman, has decided to throw in the towel on the DMX vs. Zimmerman bout. Via his Twitter account, he said:

All you people are right. The George Zimmerman fight is canceled I’m sorry for anyone I hurt with this but this was a very big opportunity thank you. I want to thank everyone for the good n bad comments I’ve made the choice to cancel the fight w George Zimmermann more to life then money. 

It was my decision to cancel the george zimmerman fight it was worth a lot of money to me but people’s feelings meant more to me. I walked away from av million dollar payday with this fight but to be honest I’d rather be happy and make people happy thank you

    Actually….respect this

    • GreenBergs

      if this whole shit wasn’t some bullshit rumor that he ran with to generate publicity to begin with..

    • Extra Domus

      there’s nothing to respect…he tried to organize the most humiliating fight in American history and all he did was obey to the ton of important people who were against it…you probably the type of dude who thought bush was a great president too LOL

      • Steve

        you’re right but all i’m saying is it takes a big man to admit he made a mistake and then try and correct it. I’m not sure if I could say no to that kind of money. & Stomp, push, shove, mush, FUCK BUSH

          fasho

    YES! I feel like for once some of my comments actually mattered. Obviously not just mine, but it’s great to see that everyone together letting it be known just how fucked up of an idea it was actually did something for once. While I still think it was mostly to save face so he could actually continue a career and not be black-balled, I’m glad this guy finally came to his senes. Hot 97 really made this guy look like one of the biggest assholes of all time and just increases how much I like Ebro, Epstein and Rosenberg.

    Really respect this, it takes a lot for a man to walk away from an easy million dollars. Lets focus on positive things now.

  • marty mcfly

    GOOD. Sometimes you gotta put whats the right thing to do is over money and its not the first time in business that somebody has sacrificed a payday for the greater good. Fight promoting is a multi billion dollar business and there are hundreds of thousands of fighters and celebrities to choose from so im sure he can find other fights to promote. DMX verse Zimmerman? NO. We cant start rewarding people for shooting unarmed teenagers especially when there are people out there that contribute positivity to the world everyday. Why not reward some of them with charity opportunity.

    He must of gotten a lot of death threats. Since when do white folks care about black folks opinions especially when it comes to making money. mmm

    • marty mcfly

      Youd be surprised how far up the influence and opinions of black people go. When you turn on Tv, Radio and the internet its not just fuckery you see but its also alot of intelligent black people that have a very big audience. You can flip through station to station and see a black person in almost every area of american culture. It goes all the way back to the 60s when alot of white celebrities would openly say that they are inspired by the creativity that comes from the black community. Now of course the higher ups and the owners of many networks would rather downplay the presence of anyone black but the opinions of black people in alot of ways have shaped and molded what american culture overall pays attention to.

        keep watching that idiot box

        • marty mcfly

          Its not just the idiot box but the opinions of black people (good and bad) can be felt in the streets as well. Its in the slang people use, its in the music when cars drive by with the window down and volume up, its in people clothes from sneakers to fitted hats, its in the subject matters of what people talk about etc… Black people feel like they dont wanna be involved in Zimmerman doing shit at all period, especially if he’s gonna use hip hop culture as a platform for attention and how can you really blame people? I mean shortly after the trail Zimmermans ex wife, her father and his girlfriend said he was pulling his gun on them and they was scared. So if Zimmerman wants attention then let him go look elsewhere but stay the fuck away from hip hop culture.

          • tiana

            up until now, do you honestly believe anything they show you about zimmerman?wake up marty

          • marty mcfly

            You sound stupid fool.

      • Ace Booger

        YOU KNOW WHAT THAT’S ONE OF THE BEST COMMENTS I’VE READ ON HERE IN A WHILE. SALUTE TO YOU MARTY MCFLY TAKE EM TO CHURCH!!!!!

        • marty mcfly

          HIP HOP be proud of yourselves. It turns out your voices do matter and make a difference.

  • Rufus Buck

    It just saddens me that it was the promoter that cancelled the fight before DMX came to his senses. The lingering question for me is if DMX would have ever walked away from the proposition.

    I have a lot of respect for DMX now. He was one of the acutely intelligent rappers of his era. It shows how far he has gone.

    One of the bad things about prospect of this fight is the thing we collectively never spoke about…

    We know that Zimmerman would have won this bout. And probably by a stoppage.

    • marty mcfly

      As of yesterday DMX still didn’t officially agree to the fight and I personally think he woulda beat the shit outta Zimmerman but then what? Zimmerman woulda went back home and found out that his name was trending all over and thats even if he lost. An ass whooping aint shit imo, thats not a harsh enough punishment. DMX built his career on talent, albums, tours, movies etc… Zimmerman just followed, chased and shot an unarmed kid. They shouldn’t even be in the same ring together. You got an artist/actor in the ring with somebody known only for murder and that dont make no sense.

      • Rufus Buck

        Agreed, except that DMX would have got his ass handed to him. You have an unhealthy drug addict (still on drugs which is why DMX even considered the bout) going up against a person who has trained and will get fit much quicker and easier than X.

        It’s all water under the bridge now, but X needs to sort is friggin life out.

        • marty mcfly

          I doubt it. I say either X woulda whooped his ass or both men woulda came out the ring the same way they went in with no real injury. This would not have been a street fight. The moment Zimmerman hit the floor, the ref would run to his rescue and people woulda turned to bitches like oh no look at poor Zimmerman… Smh. Shit woulda been a huge waste of time and money and after that Zimmerman would get a Tv show called some shit like “The Real American” and DMX woulda just got the label of bad guy just like Trayvon did for walking home with ice tea and candy.

  • Arthur Fonzarelli

    They could still just fight in the street. They don’t need a promoter,

  • Kev

    You people…

  • LuckyP757

    i was going to watch that hoe. but i wasn’t going to pay. the internets a motherfucker. so i wasn’t part of the problem to begin with

  • LuckyP757

    they should let X or the game fight zimmermans brother or that faggot ass frank taffy

  • Matt

    Another Trial on deck in Florida too. #nojustice #nopeace

  • drewsmit24

    Farrakhan leaned on him

  • Selorm Amuzu

    Not to be the downer here, but this man should have cancelled this on the grounds of common sense. In what world is it sensible to encourage a blatant killer as a celebrity. Money comes and goes but if he was willing to drop your basic sense and morals for that, then boy …

  • AKbar

    can someone take this ugly ass nigga off of the rap radar “Top Five” this isn’t a gossip blog, seriously. And fuck all you Rozay haters, Drake wanna bees, Jay-z Beach Chair lookin ass niggas and all you YMCMB dick pleasers
