Floyd Mayweather Refuses To Condemn Diddy Over Alleged Sexual Assaults: 'Mistakes Happen'

Floyd Mayweather has refused to criticize Diddy over his sexual assault allegations.

via Complex:

The retired professional boxer sat down with hosts and former NFL players Ryan Clark, Fred Taylor, and Channing Crowder where the hour-long discussion began with the topic of his grandson, Kentrell Gaulden Jr. The one-year-old is the son of Mayweather’s daughter, Yaya, and YoungBoy Never Broke Again.

“Me and NBA YoungBoy speak on a regular. We speak on a daily,” Mayweather said around the 5:45-minute mark about the rapper. “Very happy for his career, proud of him, and eventually he’s gonna grow like anybody that’s young.”

On the topic of growth, Diddy came to mind for Mayweather, who randomly went on a tangent about the disgraced hip-hop icon.

“I’m not gonna speak bad about P. Diddy, ’cause he’s still a Black man,” Mayweather said at the 6:50 mark above. “Mistakes happen. And I can’t say if it is or if it’s not a mistake, but things happen in life. And P. Diddy business is P. Diddy business. It’s not my job or anyone else’s job to go on the internet and stomp him and kick a man when he’s down. My take on it is it’s not my business. I don’t think it’s right at all and I don’t condone it.”

The 15-time world champion boxer continued, “Even if that happened to my daughter, I would be hurt, but that’s the choice that my daughter made. So, I don’t wanna kick nobody while they’re down.”

Although Mayweather sympathized with Diddy’s alleged victims, including Cassandra “Cassie” Ventura, his comments didn’t sit well with some on social media who pointed out his own history of domestic abuse accusations.

Last November, Diddy’s case with Ventura was settled out of court for an undisclosed amount. Now the artist and business mogul will be defended by attorney Bobbi Sternheim in a lawsuit from a woman claiming that he raped her in 2003 when she was 17 years old.

I really wish people like Floyd would stop protecting manipulative, toxic black men. Your race isn't a get out of jail free card.

Spending the past 30 years (that we know of) of your career grooming, as well as mentally and physically abusing your girlfriend (Cassie) as well as the other women who have come out claiming they were assaulted by Diddy isn't a mistake.

So Floyd, stick to the rivers and lakes that you're used to - which is throwing a punch, and leave the actual thinking to those of us with a working brain.
