TBS to delay Dana White's Power Slap premiere by one week

Originally published at TBS to delay Dana White's Power Slap premiere by one week

It appears that TBS is not going to pull the plug on Power Slap despite a video emerging this week of Dana White slapping his wife at a nightclub.

Andrew Marchand of the New York Post and Deadline are among those reporting that the reality series is expected to be delayed by one week on TBS.

TBS spokesperson Jori Arancio confirmed that the news was accurate to the New York Post and that Power Slap will premiere on January 18th.

Earlier this week, a video emerged on TMZ of White grabbing the wrist of his wife Anne at a nightclub in Cabo San Lucas. White whispered something into her ear, and she responded by slapping Dana, who reacted by slapping Anne.

White appeared on TMZ when the story broke acknowledging the incident and adding that there was no excuse for ever putting your hands on a woman and that it was the first time it has ever happened.

On Tuesday, Endeavor saw its stock drop by approximately six percent following the incident. After falling as low as $20.67 per share on Tuesday, the stock closed at $21.90 on Thursday.

Endeavor and the UFC have yet to comment publicly on the incident with ESPN referring to the UFC when a request for comment was made by reporter Trent Reinsmith, who was told:

“ESPN does the distribution and UFC produces the content.”
