Charlamange awards Donkey Of The Day boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. for being completely clueless when asked about women speaking out against sexual assault as part of the #MeToo movement. Read the exchange below:
We’re asking a lot of men, in light of the #MeToo movement, how men can grow in 2018.
Mayweather: The who?
The #MeToo movement. Women speaking out about sexual assault.
Mayweather: When you say “me too” … When somebody is 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.”
This is a very different —
Mayweather: 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.”
While it's hard to say that Floyd is making light of the #MeToo movement, it seems like he is completely ignorant about the subject. The problem isn't that he was misinformed because the reporter made it perfectly clear that it was about sexual assault.
Floyd has daughters and should absolutely care about the #MeToo movement. It doesn't matter how much money you have, trash men will still try to assault them. Say less, Floyd.
