Mike Tyson

TQC, help me work out whether I've discovered a clash of cultures on this question...

I find it completely shocking that Mike Tyson, a convicted rapist, is suddenly appearing in movies and on sitcoms and in crime dramas, particularly when playing himself as some kind of friendly cuddly teddybear, or playing a character on a show about sex crimes.

I've asked four friends what they thought about this, and so far it's a US/UK split - the two Americans said they found it distasteful but weren't shocked or appalled by it. The Brits were very much shocked and appalled. One pointed out that a couple of actors had to be written out of major roles in a soap opera here recently, as they're being charged with serious sexual offenses. They sure as shit won't be back on TV if they're convicted.

So, what is your opinion, and what part of the world do you come from?
