Floyd Mayweather Under Fire For Joking About #MeToo Movement [Video]

Published: Thursday 11th Jan 2018 by Rashad

He may boast a pristine boxing record with no defeats, but when it comes to cultural sensitivity it’s fair to say Floyd Mayweather has taken his fair share of L’s.

This is why few were surprised (yet still quite disappointed) to learn of the boxing champ’s recently surfaced unfortunate comments regarding the #MeToo movement – a campaign designed to shed light on and encourage women to stand up against abuse of any form (sexual harassment, unequal treatment, etc.).  In fact, his recent interview with Mens’s Health not only demonstrated his insensitivity to the subject matter, it showed he was completely unaware.

See what we mean inside:

When asked by Men’s Health for his thoughts on the #MeToo movement against sexual-misconduct, famed boxer Floyd Mayweather gave an incredibly bizarre answer:

“In light of the #MeToo movement, how men can grow in 2018.” Mayweather’s reply: “The who?” When the interviewer clarified, “The #MeToo movement. Women speaking out about sexual assault,” the boxer had this to say: “When you say ‘me too’… When somebody is like, ‘I got a Rolls Royce,’ I be like ‘me too.’ When somebody say they got a private jet, I say, ‘Me too. I got two. Me too.’” The magazine explained that the #MeToo movement is “very different,” to which Mayweather responded: “Well, I didn’t know! My Me Too movement from the beginning was whenever somebody said what they have I’m like, ‘me too.’ Somebody say they got a billion dollars, I say, ‘I made a billion dollars, me too.’” [source]

    Despite him being black and a staple in our community as oppulance. I bet you we won’t cancel him for those exact same reasons. Hes an idiot, we don’t expect much from someone who get paid to be hit in the head.

    honestly, when I watch the full video everything came together. I’m no fan of Mayweather nonsense, but in this situation, i don’t think he did anything wrong. the way people pick pieces of what he said and set it up it makes it look bad, like i said i don’t think he did anything wrong this time around.

    I mean…. FM has always been ignorant in the worst way possable. Classic case of narsiscism. If it does not affect him he does not care. He is truly a disappointment to thr black community. His parents failed.

    The real idiots here are the interviewers. Everyone already knows Floyd is a moron, so asking him questions about current events is just a waste of time lol.
