Floyd Mayweather’s Shocking Response To The ‘Me Too’ Movement

Are we really surprised?

If you know anything about Floyd Mayweather, this information may not come off as surprising.

The retired professional boxer, notorious for his undefeated 50-0 record, is your typical macho man when it comes to women issues. Recall the time when he backed up Donald Trump’s disgusting comments about sexually assaulting women.

With that in mind, maybe Floyd Mayweather’s understanding of #MeToo is to be expected.

In an interview with Men’s Health, Mayweather misinterprets the meaning of the Me Too movement while simultaneously centering it back to himself. Here’s what went down:

Men’s Health: We’re asking a lot of men, in light of the #MeToo movement, how men can grow in 2018.

Mayweather: The who?

MH: The #MeToo movement. Women speaking out about sexual assault.

Mayweather: Oh. ’Coz when you say “me too,” my thing was this, when somebody be 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.”

MH: This is a very different…

Mayweather: Well, I didn’t know! 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.”

MH: I know you have a sensitive side. You’ve talked about your sensitive side before.

Mayweather: Of course. I mean, you live and you learn. I think everyone, if you’re in an uncomfortable position, you have to pray about it, you know, talk about it, and I think that, you know, sexual harassment, I don’t think it’s cool at all.

The relevance of his Rolls Royce, private jet, and billions of dollars in this narrative will remain a mystery. I could cast this off as outrageous and insensitive; however, as I said earlier, can we really be surprised?

Props to him for at least thinking that sexual harassment isn’t cool “at all.”

Give me a break.
