Look: Floyd Mayweather Jr. Got Destroyed by T.I. for Saying 'All Lives Matter'

Here's how Tip knocked out the retired boxing champ on Instagram.

Published October 13, 2016

Floyd Mayweather Jr. and T.I. have a noted history together.

Who could forget the chair-tossing brawl that the two had in a Fatburger on the Las Vegas Strip back in May 2014, when the rapper allegedly swung on the boxing champion over disrespect to Tip's wife, Tameka "Tiny" Harris?

Well, it's been over two years since that notorious incident and T.I. swears that he's not trying to dig up the past in going at Mayweather once again. But with the retired, undefeated boxing champion recently saying "All Lives Matter," Trouble Man couldn't resist throwing some more punches in Mayweather's direction.

On Wednesday, Tip took to his Instagram and wrote a powerful post to Mayweather, calling the retired boxer's views "socially irresponsible" and those mirroring "delusional oblivion" that "undermines and discredits the movements that fight for the plights of our people."

Welp. We must say, that T.I. landed a knockout victory with this one.

But you be the judge.

Yo, @floydmayweather all our past personal differences & opinions of each other aside.... This is socially irresponsible,inconsiderate,& insensitive. It mirrors delusional oblivion in a way only brainwashing tactics can achieve. This completely undermines & discredits the movements that fight for the plights of our people. You're a leader whether you know it or not. Don't get so lost in personal possession or individual achievement that you lose sight of the things that are larger than all of us. Freedom, equality, justice, human rights,qualities of life that have been withheld (or given out sparingly) from our people for generations (400 yrs approximately). A true champion is a man of the people. A true champion makes sacrifices for the people & takes a stand against injustices for those who may not be strong enough or able to do so. A true champion is great inside as well as out. There's a difference in "Greatness" & being "Great" at something. "Greatness" isn't a measure of your abilities & accomplishments, "Greatness" is a measure of your morals,integrity & principles throughout life. Oppression knows no neutral ground. Either you're the oppressed,or you're the oppressor. What side would you like to believe you're on? While some will try to make this more critical than I hope for it to seem...it must be said. The world is watching. I have an obligation to myself & those who follow me to address this. Just know I ain't looking to clown you,I'm just trying to enlighten you,hoping that with better insight you can use your powers for good. Respectfully...-King #USorELSE
