The Breakfast Club Releases Audio Of Floyd Mayweather Struggling To Read A Drop

Written by Nigel D. / 08.22.14

After 50 Cent challenged Floyd Mayweather to read a page, Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club” released audio of Mayweather having problems reading a drop. Whatever problems Mayweather has with reading hasn’t stopped him from becoming super rich. Still, some tutoring to improve his reading skills wouldn’t hurt.

Did the Breakfast Club and or 50 Cent go too far?

CNN’s Marc Lamont Hill thoughts on the matter:

I don’t see any humor in mocking Floyd Mayweather on this reading stuff. It feels cruel and out-of-bounds.. First of all, y’all don’t know if Floyd can read or not. Struggling to read a drop out loud doesn’t mean you’re illiterate… Plenty of people can read just fine but have “fluency” issues that would make reading a teleprompter or script difficult.Also, the public shaming of literacy is why people DON’T get help for reading…

And finally, just to keep it 100, half of 50 Cent’s tweets are filled with gross misspellings that would suggest undeveloped literacy…Not even going in on 50, but just scroll down his TL right now. Read his last 20 tweets.How many reflect a strong grasp of Standard English? I don’t really care about the Floyd or 50 beef. I just don’t want us to get into the cultural practice of mocking struggling readers…There’s plenty of stuff to criticize Floyd for: crass consumerism, domestic abuse, etc. Focus on that… Not his reading…
