Floyd Mayweather Had No Clue What The #MeToo Movement Was, So He Talked About Materialistic Things (VIDEO)
We’re just ten days into 2018 and Floyd Mayweather has already given his most Floyd Mayweather answer of the year.
One of the biggest things to emerge during 2017 was the #Metoo movement shared on social media that encouraged women to come forward about stories of sexual harassment and misconduct in light of the Harvey Weinstein allegations. The movement has given women the courage to stand up against people who treated them inappropriately so many years ago and has shed light on once prominent celebrities and how terrible they are when cameras aren’t rolling.
With how big it has gotten, it’s almost impossible to have never heard of it. But alas, there was at least one person who did not: Floyd Mayweather.
In a recent interview with Men’s Health, Mayweather was asked about how men could grow in 2018 in light of the #MeToo movement. The retired boxer was so oblivious to the question that he started bringing up materialistic things.
“When you say ‘me too’, my thing is this. Somebody be like ‘Oh I got a Rolls Royce,” I be like ‘me too.'” he said, “When somebody say they got a private jet, I say, ‘Me too. I got two. Me too.'”
The reporter awkwardly laughed while trying to tell him that the “Me Too” movement she was speaking of wasn’t the same at all.
“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,” he continued.
Floyd eventually got serious with the conversation and the reporter and denounced sexual harassment.
