Floyd Mayweather probably isn’t the guy who you would most associate with getting behind a women’s rights movement given his numerous convictions for beating up women, so perhaps it’s kind of strange that Men’s Health decided to interview him about it.

But nevertheless they did, and his response was probably the most Floyd Mayweather thing ever. Not only had he never even heard of the #MeToo movement (how is that even possible?), but he make it all about him and discuss how he created his own #MeToo movement based around who had the most stuff/money.
This really is something else:
Men’s Health: We’re asking a lot of men, in light of the #MeToo movement, how men can grow in 2018.
Floyd Mayweather: The who?
MH: The #MeToo movement. Women speaking out about sexual assault.
FM: 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.”
MH: This is a very different —
FM: 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.”
MH: I know you have a sensitive side. You’ve talked about your sensitive side before.
FM: 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.
Glad he finally made some kind of point towards the end there. Or did he even manage to accomplish that? Unsure.
Anyway, I haven’t really got anything to say about that for once. I could express my surprise and outrage at Mayweather’s comments but what’s the point? I’m not in the least bit surprised, if anything the guy’s outdone even the most accurate parody of him the most talented satirist in the world could have performed. Hats off in that respect I guess.
For more Floyd Mayweather, here he is revealing how much money he has in his bank account. #MeToo (I wish).
