Dana White Homeless Skit NFL on FoxUFC president Dana White is a magnet for controversy, and his Sunday appearance during a comedic sketch on the NFL on Fox didn’t do anything to shuck that trend.

White appeared during a comedy segment titled “Riggle’s Picks” on the NFL on Fox as part of the promotional tie-ins for Saturday’s UFC on Fox 5.

Rob Riggle’s skit has the comedian pimping out his new NFL insider hotline service. White posed as one of Riggle’s “insiders,” a homeless man in a cardboard box, providing Riggle with the scoop on Carolina Panthers’ quarterback Cam Newton’s pregnancy.

The skit was obviously focused on making fun of the whole “NFL insider” angle. There were no direct barbs about homelessness, but White posing as such quickly drew fire on Twitter.

White is a Twitter regular, engaging daily in feisty conversations on the popular Social Networking platform, and rarely backing down when controversy strikes. He was no different when it came to the NFL on Fox controversy.

“The (expletive) in this country who cry about everything everyone does makes me (expletive) ill,” he tweeted.

A fan declared White’s portrayal in “bad taste” and called for him to apologize, but White still would have none of it.

He replied, “It’s a skit for a comedian. (Expletive) in this country cry about everything!!! Get a sense of humor.”

White has often been described as the brash head of the UFC, rarely steering away from controversy. Following Sunday’s NFL on Fox stir and his response, it doesn’t appear that White is intent on changing his ways anytime soon.
