Floyd Mayweather thought 'me too' movement had to do with being rich

Mayweather Response To Female MeToo

Mayweather Response To Female MeToo

"As nearly anyone who owns a computer or television set could tell you, the "#MeToo" movement is one that has gained recognition in recent months as a way for people to speak out against sexual harassment and assault. Many women have shared their stories of being victims of such behavior and used the hashtag #MeToo as a show of solidarity.

"The who?" Mayweather responded to a question about the movement in an interview with Men's Health magazine published Wednesday, framed around the launch of his new business venture, "Mayweather Boxing + Fitness".

Mayweather's comments has since sparked outrage on twitter, with many users commenting on the boxer's sexual assault history.

Once told the movement's meaning, Mayweather said he uses the expression "me too" to discuss his wealth.

"Well, I didn't know!" he said.

"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'".

Floyd can't be serious, can he? "Me Too." But Mayweather caught himself once the interviewer asked him about his "sensitive side", denouncing sexual harassment in his own words.

"My me too movement from the beginning was, like, when somebody says they got it, I'll be like, 'me too, '" Mayweather said. You've talked about your sensitive side before.

"I mean, you live and you learn".

"Real men speak like, 'Man, she had a fat ass. 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".

"Well, I didn't know!"
