Israel Adesanya admits he “crossed the line” when he threatened to “rape” fellow UFC fighter Kevin Holland during a trash-talking session on social media … and vows to learn from his mistake.
For context, Israel was responding to allegations Holland made earlier this month against him … claiming the middleweight champ is a steroid user.
Adesanya responded in an Instagram story by saying, “Bro, I’ll f***ing rape you.”
The comment was met with outrage from high profile people … including New Zealand Deputy Prime Minister Grant Robertson, who said, “There is never a time to make flippant comments about rape. It’s just not something anybody should do.”
