UFC fighter Derek Brunson feels that it is sad that people are celebrating the problems of United States President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden. Recently a video of Hunter Biden had gone viral which created a lot of controversies.

The 52-year-old appears to be arguing with a woman about drugs and physically weighing the drugs on camera in the video.

Brunson noted on his Twitter that as a society, we should show compassion.

"It's sad when people see Biden's son drug addiction video, they repost and celebrate. As a society, we need to learn to sympathize and be compassionate towards eachother. #JustTheMessenger,” he wrote.

Interestingly, former UFC fighter Jake Sheilds had a different take on the issue. Shields noted that he initially had sympathy towards Hunter Biden but added that he changed his opinion after reading stories online.

Who is Hunter Biden?

Robert Hunter Biden is the second son of US President Joe Biden and his first wife, Neilia Hunter Biden. Biden is also an investor in hedge funds, venture capital, and private equity funds, as well as a former lobbyist, banker, public administration official, and registered lobbyist-firm attorney.

Due to a failed drug test, Biden was discharged from the United States Navy Reserve shortly after his commissioning. From 2014 until his term expired in April 2019, Biden served on the board of Burisma Holdings, one of Ukraine's largest private natural gas producers.

Since the early months of 2019, Biden and his father, Joe Biden, have been the subject of unsubstantiated claims of corrupt activities in a Biden-Ukraine conspiracy theory promoted by then-U.S. President Donald Trump and his allies, involving Hunter Biden's business dealings in Ukraine and Joe Biden's anti-corruption efforts in Ukraine on behalf of the United States while he was vice president. Biden served on the board of directors of BHR Partners, a Chinese investment firm.

Hunter is expected to face criminal charges for trafficking sex workers across state lines in the United States.

He has only recently begun exhibiting his work as a painter. The New York Post published an article in October 2020 about a laptop computer that allegedly once belonged to Hunter Biden. The laptop contained approximately 129,000 emails and other materials, but its authenticity was called into question due to the absence of a chain of custody.

In March 2022, an analysis confirmed the authenticity of thousands of emails discovered on the laptop. Biden's tax affairs have been the subject of a federal criminal investigation since December 2020.
