Flord Mayweather, boxer and a man who spent two months in prison after being convicted of domestic violence, opened his mouth about Ray Rice yesterday at a press conference. This is easily the most arrogant, dumbest thing said in the wake of the Ray Rice incident. Via ESPN:
Floyd Mayweather Jr. says he believes the NFL should have stuck with its original discipline of Ray Rice, saying the league was overly influenced by new video showing Rice knocking out his then-fiancee in an Atlantic City, New Jersey, casino elevator.
The boxing superstar — who has had his own domestic abuse issues — said Tuesday that he didn’t think the original two-game suspension should be changed because of the video.
Just…. Wow. What an asshole. Fuck Floyd Mayweather for even trying to defend Rice right now:
“I think there’s a lot worse things that go on in other people’s households, also,” Mayweather said. “It’s just not caught on video, if that’s safe to say.”
“Like I’ve said in the past, no bumps, no bruises, no nothing,” Mayweather said. “With O.J. and Nicole, you seen pictures. With Chris Brown and Rihanna, you seen pictures. With (Chad) Ochocinco and Evelyn, you seen pictures. You guys have yet to see any pictures of a battered woman, a woman who says she was kicked and beaten (by Mayweather). So I just live my life and try to stay positive, and try to become a better person each and every day.”
This is coming from a guy who hangs out with Justin Bieber and puts stupid stuff like this on his Instagram. Why do people like or respect this guy again?
As much as we love to hate them, you have to respect Stephen A Smith and Skip Bayless for calling this clown out. Watch:
