Is Floyd Mayweather Jr. trying to be funny when he was asked about the #MeToo campaign?

On Wednesday, Men's Health interviewed the professional boxer and boxing promoter. Among the questions asked was the hashtag #MeToo that aims to encourage sexual harassment victims to speak up. When asked about the campaign, Mayweather gave an ignorant response.

"When you say 'me too' ... 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,'" he said.

The interviewer explained to Mayweather that the #MeToo campaign is different. But the boxer continued with his own "me too" perspective.

"Well, I didn't know!" Mayweather continued. "My Me Too movement from the beginning was whenever somebody said what they have I'm like, 'me too.' Somebody say they got a billion dollars, I say, 'I made a billion dollars, me too.'"

After much prompting from the interviewer, Mayweather eventually said that sexual harassment is "not cool at all." However, many were not pleased with how he handled the #MeToo question and attacked him with his personal issues in the past.

"This is a guy who has dedicated his whole life to the art of inflicting brain damage upon another human being. Don't expect too much out of him," Joseph McDermott wrote on Twitter.

"that's because he beats women and is illiterate," Nik Sharma added.

A number also made fun of Mayweather's response suggesting that he would say "me too" when another man talks about beating his wife. Others think that it was a setup interview.

"Set up interview. You ask a man who has been accused of sexual assault about #metoo movement? Come on..." Ace reacted. "Typical answer from floyd which always goes to his money!!! Floyd isn't political, so to ask that was a set up. Even though I don't like floyd answer but I understand it."

The #MeToo campaign started in October when more celebrities who experienced sexual assault and harassment opened up about their experience. Alyssa Milano started the online campaign on Twitter and called up everyone to respond with "me too" if they experience the same. The hashtag "#MeToo" became the highest trending hashtag on the microblogging site.
