Floyd Mayweather Jr. did not see a problem with President Donald Trump’s controversial “locker-room talk.”
Trump faced mass scrutiny during last year’s presidential campaign when leaked audio from a 2005 “Access Hollywood” appearance depicted his saying that he often kissed women without permission and that as a celebrity “you can do anything,” including “grab them by the p—y.” After the words became public, he dismissed them as “locker-room talk.”
Speaking on “Hollywood Unlocked,” Mayweather seemed to agree with the sentiment, saying it was how “real men” spoke.
“He speaks like real men spoke,” Mayweather said. “Real men speak like, ‘Man, she had a fat a–. You see her a–? I had to squeeze her a–. I had to grab that fat a–.'”
Mayweather, who served prison time in 2011 for domestic battery and has faced other allegations, continued: “So he’s talking locker-room talk. Locker-room talk. ‘I’m the man, you know what I’m saying? You know who I am. Yeah, I grabbed her by the p—y. And?'”
Mayweather said he attended Trump’s inauguration and appreciated Trump’s support at his 2015 bout with Manny Pacquiao.
“If y’all didn’t want the man in the White House, y’all should have voted the other way,” Mayweather said, adding: “He did what he had to do, and he got there.”
