UFC star receives backlash after unsympathetic tweet about missing teen


An 18-year-old is still missing after jumping into what are believed to be “shark-infested” waters near the Bahamas.

Cameron Robbins was celebrating his graduation from Baton Rouge’s University Laboratory School with several hundred students on a cruise when he may have been dared to jump into the water.

UFC superstar Israel Adesanya caught wind of the news and didn’t exactly have a somber response.

“‘It’s a prank pro’ era. #darwinism,” Adesanya tweeted in response to the report that Robbins was accepting a dare.

Adesanya was blasted by several Twitter users for his unsympathetic tweet.

“Be mindful of his grieving family, homie,” one user tweeted.

“Bad look and take my guy. He has a family and yours taught you better. Especially being from Nija, I know they did,” said another.

However, when the fighter saw the news that the teen had jumped into “shark-infested” waters, he changed his tune.

“Damn… I hope they find him. But still just sad s— really,” he said in a separate tweet.

Robbins was a standout baseball player who attended the school for more than a decade and left a lasting impression on his classmates and teachers. 

The Coast Guard said in a statement when it called off the search, “We offer our sincerest condolences to Cameron Robbins’ family and friends.”
