First off, let us say that there is nothing, and we mean nothing, funny about rape. Yesterday, War Machine of Bellator sent out the following distasteful tweet referencing his adult film star girlfriend Christy Mack, which you gotta see to believe.

Wow. Really? Obviously, that "joke" received some backlash which prompted War Machine to get all defensive through a series of tweets.

After the dust settled and maybe dude came to his senses, he sent out a more sincere, apologetic tweet.  

While it's good to see that WM saw the issue with what he said, it's still concerning that he even thought something like that would be funny in the first place. SMDH.
