Floyd Mayweather, Jr. just made some questionable remarks about the #MeToo movement.
In an interview with Men’s Health, the boxing champ was questioned about the social media inniative that moved to bring awareness to the women and men who’ve faced sexual assault and harassment both in and out of the workplace. Unfortunately, Mayweather didn’t seem to be aware of the movement and said some things that left us scratching our heads.
When the publication told him, “We’re asking a lot of men, in light of the #MeToo movement, how men can grow in 2018.” That’s when the athlete said, “The who?” After that, Mayweather added: “Oh cause 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!”
When the interviewer continued to further explain the innovative, the boxer added: “I didn’t know. My Me Too movement from the beginning was whenever somebody said what they have I’m like, me too.”
After this awkward moment, Mayweather eventually pulled it together in the end. “I think if 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,” he eventually replied.
