Tormenting my kids at school??????


This part made no sense why would a reporter walk up to a kid put a mic in his face at school and say what do you think of your dads recent fight?

reply

I'm not sure that he necessarily meant just reporters doing that. It could have been other school kids taunting Apollo's kids, saying he should have lost the fight and that he received a 'gift decision'.

reply

that still makes no sense

reply

The other kids probably taunted him saying "you're dad lost the fight to a nobody,he's a punk".

reply

He said "insulting"... not tormenting. Big difference.

reply

It does make sense that other kids were insulting Apollo's at school. After all needless to say, there are bullies in schools.

The press is vicious.

Dumbest post on this site. After what you’ve just witnessed over the last couple of year’s with the media you say it makes no sense??? Hahaha

Very foreshadowing scene

reply

This happens in real life I don’t understand what’s so hard to get. For example, after Bill Buckner made the error in the 86 World Series, even teachers were saying stuff to his kids who were in kindergarten.

That was 1979 before the #BeBest policy which put a stop to this kind of behavior.
