Mike Tyson Mourns Prince, Divides Twitter with Photoshopped Lisp ‘#Supertribute’

Former professional boxer Mike Tyson paid tribute to Prince on Twitter late Thursday by doing something Mike Tyson does best — dividing the Internet.

Stars from every corner of public life, including Mike Tyson, mourned the loss of the music legend, who was found dead inside his Minnesota compound on Thursday morning.

Among the tributes was a self-depreciating tweet from Tyson that praised the departed pop culture icon for his contributions to music.

Tyson wrote to his more than 5 million Twitter followers: “#supertribute to #Prince #RIP Like the world I mourn but celebrate your spirit with your music.”

The tweet included a photoshopped image of Tyson’s head superimposed onto Prince’s 1979 self-titled album.

The image also nodded to Tyson’s trademark lisp.

Instead of “Prince,” the album title had been replaced with the word “Printhe.”

The tweet was met with a mixture of sadness, confusion, and laughter.

Mike Tyson is a popular target for Internet memers.
