Mayweather Tells Kaepernick to Stand Up

Boxing Champion Floyd Mayweather, is always one for controversy however, in this latest stint, his comments targeting the ‘BLM’ movement is sure to send sparks.

Mayweather spoke about his views concerning Colin Kaepernick in an interview with Flight Hype. He made it clear that ‘All Lives Matter,’ and Kaepernick needs to stand-up.

“I’m here to say All Lives Matter. A lot of the times, we get stuck and we are followers. You hear one person say, Black Lives Matter, Blue Lives Matter, no All Lives Matter.”

“What I learned from boxing…everyone can take it real lightly…is follow directions…follow orders…don’t give nobody a hard time.”

“When someone breaks in your house, when someone breaks in your car, the first thing we do is call the police. With me being a fighter and my hands being registered, if I hit a guy for breaking in my house or breaking in my car, it’s going to cost me more money. So I gotta work smarter, not harder. I’m going to call the cops. It’s not right what’s going on in this world on both sides. I think we need to communicate better and I think we need to follow directions. It’s rules and regulations to everything.”

Moreover, it may appear Mayweather is seemingly a little detached from what the general consensus is surrounding Black Lives, and he now joins an ever growing list of celebs whose sentiments concerning the Black Lives Movement, is just a little off the cuff.
