Floyd Mayweather had a lot of support when fighting Conor McGregor, but the same can’t be said now that he’s caping for Donald Trump.
The retired boxer sparked outrage on Twitter when he condoned Trump’s infamous “grab ’em by the p—-” comments.
“People don’t like the truth… He speak like a real man spoke,” Complex reported Mayweather told Hollywood Unlocked in a since-deleted video interview. “Real men speak like, ‘Man, she had a fat ass. You see her ass? I had to squeeze her ass. I had to grab that fat ass.’ Right? So he talking locker room talk. Locker room talk. ‘I’m the man, you know what I’m saying? You know who I am. Yeah, I grabbed her by the p—-. And?'”
Trump was criticized last October when he defended a 2005 recording where he said his fame allowed him to do whatever he wants to women.
“Grab them by the p—-,” Trump said. “You can do anything.”
The president later released a statement describing the conversation with then-“Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush as “locker room banter.”

Mayweather’s use of the same defense caused Twitter to mercilessly splinter from the boxer.

Like for real…last person I'd wanna see giving a interview on how "real men" act is Floyd Mayweather along with his pal Trump. #mayweather

if I'm a man looking for guidance on what a "real man" is I'm not looking at Donald Trump or Floyd Mayweather but maybe that's just me

Floyd Mayweather is how old?, and he doesn't realize that grabbing a non-consenting woman by the 🐱 doesn't make a man a "real man".
