Should Mike Tyson be on Law & Order: SVU?
Tuesday, February 5, 2013 | Categories: Q Blog |
Tomorrow, former boxer Mike Tyson will guest star on the NBC crime drama Law & Order: SVU (Special Victim's Unit). However, many sexual abuse survivors and advocacy groups find it offensive that Tyson, a convicted rapist, would play a role on SVU -- a show that dramatizes justice for sex crime survivors. Yet, SVU Executive Producer Warren Leight has made the point via Twitter that Tyson was "convicted over 20 years ago, and served his time" for the conviction. What do you think Q listeners? Is it wrong to have a convicted rapist act in a TV drama about sex crimes and justice?
