HYPOCRISY

Floyd Mayweather has a disturbing history of domestic violence

You can’t criticize Donald Trump in one breath and cajole a serial domestic abuser in the next.

Last Tuesday night, Jimmy Kimmel dedicated his opening monologue on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to President Donald Trump, calling out the commander-in-chief for his appalling defence of the Charlottesville neo-Nazis and pleading with Trump voters to admit they were wrong. It was a fairly de rigueur performance when it comes to this new wave of politically conscious late-night hosts—a choir of voices that pride themselves on calling out social and political injustices.

And then, mere minutes after giving Trump a vicious tongue-lashing, Kimmel welcomed that night’s big guest: Floyd “Money” Mayweather, the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world. The undefeated (49-0) champion is currently making the rounds to promote his August 26 bout against UFC fighter Conor McGregor, an event that critics have labelled a shameless money grab.

Kimmel lightly ribbed Mayweather about his reputation for throwing around absurd sums of money (Mayweather confessed to once owning a Brink’s truck to haul all his cash) and, during a particularly cringe-inducing exchange, couldn’t contain his giggles while questioning why Mayweather doesn’t receive lap dances from the entertainers at his strip club.
