Floyd Mayweather under fire for joking about #MeToo Movement


FloydMayweather has found himself in hot water after cracking jokes about the #MeToo Movement, where women share their stories of sexual misconduct, assault, and harassment.
In a brief interview with a Men’s Health reporter, Mayweather was asked


“We’re asking a lot of men, in light of the #MeToo movement, how men can grow in 2018,” the reporter asked, to which the boxer replied, “The who?”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

“The #MeToo movement. Women speaking out about sexual assault,” she said,

Mayweather responded

“When you say ‘me too’ … 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. I got two. Me too.'”

Although the reporter tried to explain the movement to Mayweather, he continued to make light of the situation, saying,

“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.”

However, according to TMZ, Mayweather did eventually denounce sexual misconduct. But, many are still displeased with Mayweather’s comments.
