The Bravo TV star chef recently posted a phony text message conversation between him and someone seemingly impersonating the boxer on Instagram. Labeled as “‘Iron’ Mike,” the message sender delivered threatening messages to Chef Roble in reference to a comical meme posted by the chef of Mike Tyson holding two birds beak-to-beak. The caption read “NOW KITH,” a jab at the fighter’s lisp. The made-up message read:
“How you doing there Mr. funny man? You think that shit’s funny making fun of my speech impediment?You know we always been cool when I see you in Brooklyn right? Well that shit is over. I don’t know is your old enough to remember that game ‘Mike Tyson’s Punch Out’ but either way I’m gonna fuck you up when I see you like I did little white boy in the video game. You hear me you ostrich looking skinny cheffin’ punk? Laugh now, cry later.”
A representative for Tyson contacted the NY Post and denied that the boxer had any connection to Roble.
“Mike has never heard of this chef nor would he write anything like this,” the source said.
