Douchebag of the Week: Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. is one of the greatest fighters around these days, but apparently homeboy has taken one too many blows to the head.  If you haven't been following the news, Mr. Mayweather has gotten himself into hot water.

First, there is the infamous racist rant Floyd filmed about rival Manny Pacquiao, in which he called Pacquiao a "midget" several times.  He also said that once he beats the Pac-man, he was going "make some sushi rolls, and cook some rice."  Floyd also stated, "We're going to cook him with some cats and dogs."

Mayweather gave the normal insincere, fake apology that anyone does, when they run their mouth, and say something stupid and racist.  Whatever chance the so called "superfight" between the two boxers is probably ruined, but this isn't why Floyd wins the award.

Mayweather is facing a total of eight criminal charges, including domestic violence and theft.  Floyd allegedly showed up at the home of his ex-girlfriend and her three children(Floyd owns the house) rose hell.  His ex claims that Mayweather hit her, threatened her, and threatened to beat two of their children.  She also accused him of stealing phones that belonged to her and their children.

While its too early to jump to conclusions, Mayweather does have a history of violence.  In 2005 he was convicted of an unprovoked attack against two women outside of a Las Vegas nightclub.  He received a suspended sentence of one year in that case.

These charges are very disturbing.  Anytime you threaten a child, you deserve whatever punishment the Judicial System can toss his way.  The guy has a reputation as a thug, and he's beaten women, so things don't look too good in this case.  He has more money than God, so I doubt jail time will be given in this case.  Once a thug always a thug.

Floyd Mayweather, felon, woman abuser, and his newest title, Douchebag of the Week!
