Joel Michael Singer Reddit
The latest Reddit thread on the Singer video was posted to the Instant Karma subreddit.
Separately, Heflin told Heavy, “If I’m being honest, I didn’t think about how to tackle or take him down. I just reacted when he swung at me. I wrestled in high school. Barely made varsity until my senior year honestly. He had a jacket on which made it easy to grab hold and just use my center of gravity to pivot. Logical if you think about it.
“So many people speculated I know jujitsu or MMA. Nope. I was in the Army National Guard as a kid for like seven years and just high school wrestling before that. That’s it. Lizard brain took over when he swung, simple as that. The commentary I did during the scuffle was just me being me. Had no idea it was being recorded. … Funny how that works.”
