Floyd Mayweather Center For Kids Who Can’t Read Good And Wanna Learn To Do Other Stuff Good Too

(The good old [less funny] days of 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather)


Y kant Floyd read? Or maybe he can and the above clip of him trying to read isn’t as damning as it sounds because he was on muscle relaxers or something. Either way, Floyd Mayweather’s old pal 50 Cent is brutalizing him over his literacy level since Floyd made some comments about the irrelevancy of Fitty and other rappers with whom he has recently beefed. He has been challenging him to read various things (Harry Potter, Cat in the Hat) in public (like maybe on the Jimmy Kimmel Show) in exchange for a $750,000 donation to a charity of Mayweather’s choice.

Like so, in this compilation of his Instagram videos:


And then, for good measure, at the end of that compilation — which is in reverse chronological order — he basically said Floyd was thirsty for his ex and she’s getting it elsewhere.

It would be cruel to mock someone for not being able to read if that person had some kind of learning disability (is that y Floyd kant read?), and then we’d all feel bad about laughing about this, now, wouldn’t we? Wouldn’t we?

But there’s very little for Mayweather to lose here by accepting the challenge. He’d take 750K out of the pocket of an enemy, he’d look like a good guy for making sure some money got donated to charity — his charity fundraising efforts have been notably lackluster, and he doesn’t seem to like taking money out of his own pocket for good causes vs. serial accumulation of stuff — and even if he kant read good he’ll have plenty of time to memorize something before going on the show.

I never thought a day would come that I would actually be cheering for Floyd Mayweather to, just, read.
