UFC star Paige VanZant was shocked by the reaction that her provocative Instagram video promoting Reebok received from the MMA community.
“Actually, I haven’t seen anything that people responded, so I post things and just kinda forget about it,” VanZant told MMAfighting. “Definitely it was funny. I never anticipated that kind of reaction, so I had no idea. My manager, my mom, somebody told me about it. But, no, I just thought it was funny.”
The 23-year-old Dancing With The Stars runner-up says she did not intend for the video to be viewed negatively. The strawweight contender says she thought it was her “being funny”.
“I pretty much kind of do whatever I want,” VanZant said. “It was me being funny, I thought.”
VanZant revealed that her mother actually deleted the video due to the reaction the video received online.
“No, I didn’t even delete it,” VanZant said. “Somebody else, I don’t know how. I think my mom deleted it, so it’s my mom being a mom.”
