UFC fighter Andrea Lee took to Twitter to defend her husband Donny Aaron after a picture revealed a swastika tattoo on his forearm.  In a now deleted tweet and a follow up tweet, Andrea says the couple has many “ethnic” friends and a “an Asian and black guy” live with them.

Andrea wasn’t the only one attempting to explain and defend her husband’s tattoos.  Donny himself attempted to explain them with a post of his own on Instagram.

Whatever way you slice this one, the tattoos and the attempted explanations aren’t going to sit well with everyone.  Aaron has to get them covered up with new tattoos or removed if he really wants to distance himself from his past.
