Floyd Mayweather gets social media angry with ‘All Lives Matter’ comment

Floyd Mayweather gets social media angry with ‘All Lives Matter’ comment

Retired boxer Floyd Mayweather has really gone and done it now! In the midst of the fight for justice where African Americans are concerned he has trivialized it with the comment during an interview that all lives matter.

The constant killing of black people by police gave rise to the campaign as the officers are not held accountable for the senseless killings.

It is therefore even more painful to hear their concerns being dismissed without merit.

Social media users did not take kindly to his comments and they sure did not hesitate in making their voices heard.

Mayweather who made the comment during the promotion of one of his events also went on to say that “What I learned from boxing and what everyone can take in real life is to follow directions, follow orders. Don’t give nobody a hard time.”

Some Twitter users did defend Mayweather’s comments, but most of the responses from people on the social media platform were critical of the 39-year-old.

Charlamagne Tha God was one of the critics to take aim at Floyd. The Breakfast Club host gave Mayweather “Donkey Of The Day” for his all lives matter speech.

Check out the interview here.
