TapouT’s Mask dies in Ferrari crash

Mask from TapouT

Charles Lewis Jr., known as Mask amongst the MMA community and owner of TapouT, died in an accident at around 1:00 AM this morning after his $300,000 Ferrari Modena crashed into a light pole, splitting it in half. A female passenger was ejected from the car and taken to a local hospital where she was treated for broken bones.

Police say Mask was racing a guy in a Porsche and the two hit each other which sent both of them spiraling out of control. The Porsche made out unscathed and drove off. The driver and passenger in the Porsche were later found and arrested. The driver was charged with gross vehicular manslaughter with DUI.

There has been speculation that Mask’s female passenger may have been his fiance. A rep for TapouT released this statement:

“It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we must regretfully confirm the passing of our beloved friend, brother and co-founder Charles “Mask” Lewis following a car accident that occurred last night. We are currently in the process of setting up a memorial service in his honor and will release more details as they become available. Many thanks to all for the outpouring of blessings and well-wishes during this incredibly difficult time.”

However douchey the TapouT crew may seem, they did a lot for the MMA community through sponsorships, helping the sport grow. Granted, if what I’m reading is correct, Mask, who may or may not have been intoxicated at the time, was street racing. If true, it’s hard to feel too much pity for him. Have people learned nothing from Nick Hogan?

It would have been convenient if the other two Fratboy Bitch Cumbags were in the Ferrari with him. cry cry cry. Everyone laughed at them whenever they came on the tv. Ridiculous losers.

remembered forever? do you think? remembered as long as the next fuck or distraction…just like a gangsta…they’re not remembered…why are you so media enamoured? if you know him personally, of course i appologize and would feel like a jerk…

i need to ask why are m-f-ing americans so shallow and throwing accolades to someone they don’t know and not to their family or friends or spending time making real difference in the world rather than sobbing over some plastic icon they adored…again, for family or friends this is not intended towards you…

Oh yes, big tough guy with stripes on his face. What a moron! Metal, glass, concrete, all tougher stripes or not! The you have to respect how he endangers an innocent passenger, not to mention anyone else on the road. Surely he will be missed by his adoring suck ups, he sounds like such a great guy, I’m just so….empty at never having laughed at him in person! May he rest in pieces….

He was a great guy and I will pray for him and his family. He obviously was not trained for such a car and definately not a race car driver. I stopped doing stupid shit and I’m still alive. Good luck to all you fools that think that you can escape death doing stupid shit.

Either way you look at it he did a stupid move trying to race, we all have done stupid stuff at some point in our lives. None of us deserve to die for it! It’s a shame a life was lost from such a senseless act. God Bless you Mask! I hope you have made piece with our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ! RIP.

Some of you need to look up karma. You shouldn’t say bad things about those who have passed away. I’m almost sure none of us had even met Mask in person. So it is not our place to say anything. Only those who knew him should speak about him, because those are the ones that really knew him. People in this world should stop being the judge and jury for everyone else. Try started with yourself. I wish all many blessings.

It is sad he had to die, on the other hand how many children and families did they pass, How many kids and grandmas walking down the street did they scare, just how many could have lost their lives and they lived, love to the families that lived and to the family that lost their loved one….to Mask you lived a High life and payed for it.

Its sad mask died but thats what happens when u make stupid mistakes. If he was drunk at least u could blame his moronic actions on that! I wouldnt say he deserved it but stupidity catches up with u. Another story of someone with too much money and not enough brains.
