Floyd Mayweather really needs to start reading the news or something.
The #MeToo movement was started as a way for women who were victims of sexual abuse, assault and harassment in the workplace to come forward and share their stories. The stories were met with the #MeToo hashtag as a way for the women to know they’re not alone.
Floyd Mayweather has/had no idea what #MeToo actually is.
During an interview with Men’s Health magazine, Mayweather used the #MeToo name to brag about how much money he has.
Check out this conversation:
Men’s Health: We’re asking a lot of men, in light of the #MeToo movement, how men can grow in 2018.
Mayweather: The who?
MH: The #MeToo movement. Women speaking out about sexual assault.
Mayweather: Oh. ’Coz 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.”
MH: This is a very different…
Mayweather: Well, I didn’t know! 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.
Mayweather: 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.
