Floyd Mayweather chimes in on the #MeToo movement.
One of the biggest movements to emerge in the past year was the #MeToo movement. At this point, you probably already know what it's about but if you don't, it's a 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. It became one of the most widely used hashtags of 2017 and eventually, the women behind it became Time's Magazine "People Of The Year." You'd think that it would be impossible to be unaware of the movement. However, Floyd Mayweather proved it was possible.
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 famed boxed was completely oblivious to it and began making jokes once asked.
"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.
Eventually, Floyd got serious with the reporter and denounced sexual harassment.
"If you are in an uncomfortable position. I mean, you have to pree about it, you know. Talk about it. And I think that sexual harassment, I don't think it's cool.
