"Floyd seems to be conflating #MeToo with the Clipse song 'Mr. Me Too."

Published 1 week ago

While at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas yesterday to promote a virtual reality boxing experience featuring himself, Floyd Mayweather Jr. was asked about the #MeToo movement of women coming out and saying that they were victims of sexual assault.

The retired, undefeated boxing legend's response to Men's Health asking him, "We're asking a lot of men, in light of the #MeToo movement, how men can grow in 2018?" 

"The who?" Mayweather responded. 

"When you say 'me too' ... when somebody is like, 'I got a Rolls Royce,' I be like 'me too,'" Mayweather continued telling Men's Health. "When somebody say they got a private jet, I say, 'Me too. I got two. Me too.'"

 

When Men's Health tried to tell Mayweather that the #MeToo movement they were referring it was very different, the boxing legend said: "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.'"

Good grief, Floyd.

Although Mayweather said "sexual harassment, I don't think it's cool at all," Twitter cringed upon hearing him either acting as if he didn't know about the #MeToo movement or really not knowing about it. And the Internet let him know all about it with these reactions.
