Alleged Domestic Abuser Floyd Mayweather Cracks Jokes About #MeToo

Floyd Mayweather sent fighting fans insane on Twitter when he sent a haunting message to Conor McGregor on the social media site. In a recent interview, the boxer and ladies man made some tasteless jokes surrounding the #MeToo movement and Twitter is steadily delivering low blows.

Me Too is a hashtag relating to the girl campaign in which women use the two words to express if they have been a victim of sexual misconduct.

Men's Health: We're asking a lot of men, in light of the #MeToo movement, how men can grow in 2018.

The boxer is retired, Men's Health reports, and has a slew of business ventures including a virtual reality workout experience, opening brick-and-mortar gyms and an app.

Following the Harvey Weinstein allegations, the #MeToo movement has picked up some powerful steam, even evolving into the #TimesUp initiative, which had its biggest moment to date at the 75th Golden Globes.

Hours later, Mayweather jumped over to his instagram account to share several photos from his boxing match against McGregor, which were accompanied by captions such as "You violate and I will demonstrate!" and "The new King of Ireland, it took me only 28 minutes".


Mayweather continued, "My me too movement from the beginning was, like, when somebody says they got it, I'll be like, 'me too'".

"Everything that the team that's behind me has touched has turned to gold", he said. "The one thing I'll point out - I don't want to get too much into a back and forth - but we're a public company and there are regulations, there are legal requirements".

The interviewer attempted to correct Mayweather, pointing out the significant difference between his jets and the problems associated with sexual misconduct and harassment.

"The who?" Mayweather responded when asked about the campaign.

"I know you have a sensitive side".

Mayweather: Of course. I mean, you live and you learn.
