Well, at least he can throw a good punch.
Yesterday 50 Cent took to Instagram to do what he does best — troll. His latest target was his former pal and highest paid athlete in the world, Floyd Mayweather Jr., who Fifproposed a special challenge to. In the middle of what appeared to be a video of the rapper participating in the viral ALS ice bucket challenge, 50 instead aimed his crosshairs at Floyd issuing him this offer, “If you could read one full page of a ‘Harry Potter’ book … I’ll give $750,000 to whatever charitable organization you want to.”
As the world scratched their head at 50′s wager, since Floyd has never been exposed for having a reading disability in the past, Power 105.1′s Breakfast Club host, Charlamagne Tha God, aired a disconcerting audio clip of Floyd Mayweather attempting to read a drop for the radio stations “Show Your Stripes” initiative. The script for the drop read as follows:
“I’m Floyd Mayweather and I’ve joined IHeartRadio for the Show Your Stripes movement to support the hiring of vets. Go to ShowYourStripes.org, a website that connects veterans with employees and helps businesses find candidates with the best training.”
Let’s just say, Mayweather didn’t quite nail it. In fact, Breakfast Club co-host Angela Yee had to step in and end the segment because of its malicious nature. Listen to the extremely uncomfortable clip for yourself above.
