Floyd Mayweather effs up with not-so-funny #MeToo joke

Postado Janeiro 12, 2018

Floyd Mayweather is famous because he is a world-class athlete.

Expressing little solidarity and dismissing women's fight against sexual harassment shouldn't be too surprising coming from a man who has a long history of domestic violence, including spending 90 days in jail for domestic battery in 2012. He's misogynistic. He's racist. So much so that he apparently doesn't care about being offensive.

Men's Health: "The #MeToo movement".

During an interview at CES to promote his new virtual reality boxing game, Mayweather was asked about the "Me Too" movement, which promotes awareness of sexual harassment and assault, and asked, "The who?".

With how big it has gotten, it's nearly impossible to have never heard of it. Because Mayweather cut her off.

"We're asking a lot of men, in light of the #MeToo movement, how men can grow in 2018", the magazine said.

MH: The #MeToo Movement.

When the clip was released in October 2016, Trump tweeted that his remarks, which some construed as evidence that he has sexually assaulted women, were "locker room talk".

Mayweather was asked about the movement during an interview with Men's Health, and his response was jaw-droppingly ignorant. 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. "Somebody say they got a billion dollars, I say, 'I made a billion dollars, me too'".

The interviewer tried to steer him on the right tracks, explaining that this was a "very different" conversation, but Mayweather kept going. "My me too movement from the beginning was, like, when somebody says they got it, I'll be like, 'me too'".

"When you say 'me too, ' my thing is this, when somebody is like, 'I got a Rolls Royce, ' I be like 'me too".

He added: "I think everyone, if you're in an uncomfortable position, you have to pray about it, you know, talk about it".
