War Machine apologizes for tweeting he raped his girlfriend

War Machine Christy Mack

Bellator MMA fighter War Machine (real name Jonathan Koppenhaver) apologized for saying on Twitter Saturday that he “raped” his girlfriend.

War Machine seemed to be trying to express how dominant he is in his relationship with adult video star Christy Mack, and how he takes his sex when he wants it, when he tweeted the following message:

After getting some instant backlash from people on Twitter, War Machine continued with the tasteless language. When some people asked why he hadn’t responded to their tweets, War Machine told them “was busy raping my woman actually.”

War Machine then blamed the Twitter public for taking his words out of context:

OK, War Machine, so in what context did you mean your rape comment?

“like when my GF says we can’t have sex until after errands but then I take it now =]” he told someone who questioned him.

War Machine continued to complain about the public mistaking his comment:

Then, five hours after sending his initial rape comment, War Machine finally apologized.

War Machine’s rape comment and defiance should not be surprising. The man was released by the UFC for rejecting a fight offer and accusing the late Evan Tanner committed suicide. War Machine has also spent at least two stints in county jail for various legal issues, including felony assault convictions stemming from two separate bar fights.

War Machine is 13-4 in his career as a fighter. He has also appeared in 12 adult films.

His girlfriend did defend him:

    War Machine has always been and will always be a goofball! He’s just a roided up thug who thinks he’s the toughest dude around. Hahahaa, weak chin and even weaker mind! Good riddance goof!

    Well, as they say, you can take the savages out of the jungle, but you can’t take the jungle out of the savages.

    Is this the type of guys women like these days? Christy Mack CAN do better….

  • Christian Gannon

    Words that will ring true within three weeks— “War Machine” has same public respect (very low) and loathing (extremely high) as Chris Brown. Same character, same attitude, same result; public ostracizing and no, read none, nada, zip future in the public. This guy will be selling used cars in Boca Raton by years end and we will never hear from him again, which would be a blessing for all, except apparently, for Christy.

  • Christian Gannon

    Really? Better as in married to a clean-cut businessman and raising a family in upstate or ?

  • Christian Gannon

    By the way, War, your tweeting apologies and remorse will never gloss over your now infamous and career-killing rape comments.

  • Bobby O’Shea

    Yea…..bang on…..and yes, he can also be abusive but the chances are less than an idiot who calls himself “war machine”……that’s a red flag that tells you to stay the hell away!

  • Bobby O’Shea

    Christy is a beauty and should be treated as…..regardless of what her occupation is…

  • Christian Gannon

    Too true, Bobby O, too true…

  • Bobby O’Shea

    I just wonder how big and tough this war machine loser feels now that he beat the hell out of an absolute beauty such as Christy Mack……what woman in her right mind would even consider this guy to be relationship material after hearing of such a situation?
