Floyd Mayweather Thinks The #MeToo Movement Is About The Classic Clipse Song

Floyd Mayweather Thinks The #MeToo Movement Is About The Classic Clipse Song”

The boxing champ spoke on camera to a female reporter from Men's Health while at CES this week and when she asked Floyd about #MeToo, he had literally no idea what she was talking about.

The undefeated boxer fumbled through a tone-deaf answer to a question about his take on the popularised hashtag, which has empowered women across the globe to share their stories of sexual assault and harassment.

Somebody say they got a billion dollars, I say, "I made a billion dollars, me too".

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

Mayweather appeared to catch himself once the interviewer asked him about his "sensitive side", denouncing sexual harassment in his own words.

When the interviewer said the meaning of the movement was "very different", Mayweather said, "I didn't know!" Somebody say they got a billion dollars, I say, "I made a billion dollars, me too".

He later acknowledged that "sexual harassment, I don't think it's cool at all". However, many were not pleased with how he handled the #MeToo question and attacked him with his personal issues in the past.

FM: Of course. I mean, you live and you learn. Others think that it was a setup interview. "Come on." Ace reacted.

Not stopping there, Floyd went on to talk about his career, earnings, boosted by a lucrative fight with Conor McGregor. Floyd isn't political, so to ask that was a set up.

Floyd Mayweather might be one of the most electrifying boxers of his era, but he's also got an icky history of alleged abuse against women. Alyssa Milano started the online campaign on Twitter and called up everyone to respond with "me too" if they experience the same. In Floyd Mayweather's case, he's probably both. Mayweather will meet UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor in a super welterweight boxing match at T-Mobile Arena on August 26, 2017, in Las Vegas.
