The More Floyd Mayweather Speaks, The Less Intelligent We All Become

    It is always a treat when Floyd “Money” Mayweather decides to be raw, unfiltered and uncut. He reemerged to do so on his Instagram page this week.

    Mayweather took to his Instastories to espouse on everything he seems to have bottled up inside of him. First it was his love-hate relationship with those he labels his haters. In an expletive filled rant, he adamantly admonished them for not being on his financial level and for trolling him. He even went as far as cursing one viewer out that left a comment he didn’t like.

    MAYWEATHER REVEALS COMEBACK OFFER, FIGHTING IN UFC; POPPIN MAD SH*T: “THERE’S ONLY ONE GOAT…ME”

    “There’s only one motherf*ckin GOAT, and it’s me…I’m the best athlete ever…ain’t nobody do it better than me…I’ma go on that page and post if I’m going to fight again or not…I don’t do nothing for free…they just called me not too long ago and asked me to come back…if I wanted to, I can come right back to the UFC…I can go do a 3 or 4-fight deal in the Octagon and make a billion dollars,” stated future Hall of Famer Floyd Mayweather, who recently took to social media to “pop sh*t” about a number of topics.

    He also needed to let other fighters know he towers over them financially, and that in his mind he is the best athlete ever for making the most money annually while a professional.

    On his domestic violence convictions, which have been brought up constantly by Oscar de la Hoya, which Mayweather calls the “Golden Girl”, Mayweather states, “dont worry about my house worry about your own m%therf&cking house. Last I checked I ain’t got no problem getting no bitches and I definitely don’t have a problem getting rid of them. Because at the end of the day, I didn’t make all this money to go get married, that aint my style. Let me live my life the way I want to live my life.”   

    Next, LaTondria Jones, a fighter in the Mayweather Promotions stable received a tongue lashing for not getting better and starting to have “purple lips”, slang for getting hit in the face. Mayweather repeatedly said unprovoked that although he “has love for” the fighter, that she has “got to get better”, giving an indication why Jones (5-0) hasn’t fought since December 2016.

    He also felt the need to defend himself against any perceived backlash to his past “All Lives Matter” comments in the most selfish of ways ever, as a promotion for his TMT clothing line. 

    “Everybody be talking about Black Lives Matter, but I see more white people with TMT sh%t. Black Lives Matter; you giving Gucci the money. Black Lives Matter; you giving Givenchy the money, you giving Louis Vuitton the money, we giving Chris Louboutin the money.

    “Listen I wear the sh&t too but at the end of the day, i’m still going to wear my own shit too. I got a lot of scutiny when I said All Lives Matter, I dont give a f*&k what anybody says, I’m not a follower and I’ll say it again, All Lives Matter.’

    It got more convoluted as he heated up with intensity.

    “They like to say Black Lives Matter but at the end of the day, blacks is shooting blacks. Nobody should be shooting nobody, I want peace. There’s good cops out there just like there’s bad cops out there. At the end of the day, it’s all about following the rules and regulations on both ends.”    

    “They just called me not too long ago asking me to come back. If I want to I can come back right now into the UFC, I can go fight in the Octagon. I can go do a 3 or 4 fight deal in the Octagon and make a billion dollars.”

    As usual, when the money man speaks, you become less intelligent and more aware of how money can change people into horrible humans. It is no surprise that this “locker room” talking, insecure celebrity self is good friends with Donald Trump, even attending his inauguration, his first visit to the event.

    Floyd Mayweather, who has two daughters and many people look at him as a success symbol. But like most celebrity and greed obsessed zealots, he’s a distraction that should be more pitied than lauded.
