I shall call him … anything but “midget.”
Movie star Verne Troyer, perhaps best known for playing “Mini Me” alongside Mike Myers in the Austin Powers movie franchise, is hot under the collar after learning that Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight Jon Jones referred to Daniel Cormier as a “mental midget.”
“Bones” straight-up used the “M” word … and Troyer is not happy about it.
“People that aren’t very bright, aren’t conscious of other people,” the actor told TMZ. “They’re just naive and I would say stupid. I think he shouldn’t say it. Apologize? Yeah, I guess. I hope he loses.”
I would imagine Troyer is now rooting for Cormier to defeat Jones and retain the 205-pound title, if and when they hook ’em up later this year. Of course, “Bones” still has to get through short-notice replacement Ovince Saint Preux, who replaced the injured “DC” earlier this week.
