T.I. Rips Floyd Mayweather For “All Lives Matter” Comments

It seems like everyone has their thoughts on the Black Lives/All Lives Matter movements, and those who are not too keen on the latter of the two have no problem calling its supporters out. Take T.I. ripping Floyd Mayweather on Instagram, for instance. The boxing champion proclaimed that “all lives matter” in a video interview, and well, T.I. was really, really not having it.

“A lot of times, we get stuck, and we are followers,” he said. “When you hear one person say, ‘black lives matter,’ or ‘blue lives matter’- all lives matter.”

T.I. let the athlete have it in a lengthy post on the social media app.

“Yo, @floydmayweather all our past personal differences & opinions of each other aside…. This is socially irresponsible,inconsiderate,& insensitive,” he wrote. “It mirrors delusional oblivion in a way only brainwashing tactics can achieve. This completely undermines & discredits the movements that fight for the plights of our people.” He then adds that Mayweather shouldn’t lose sight of what is truly important in life in exchange for success and fame, because what he truly is, is a leader.

“A true champion is a man of the people,” he continued. “A true champion makes sacrifices for the people & takes a stand against injustices for those who may not be strong enough or able to do so. A true champion is great inside as well as out. There’s a difference in “Greatness” & being “Great” at something. “Greatness” isn’t a measure of your abilities & accomplishments, “Greatness” is a measure of your morals,integrity & principles throughout life. Oppression knows no neutral ground. Either you’re the oppressed,or you’re the oppressor.”

Yo, @floydmayweather all our past personal differences & opinions of each other aside…. This is socially irresponsible,inconsiderate,& insensitive. It mirrors delusional oblivion in a way only brainwashing tactics can achieve. This completely undermines & discredits the movements that fight for the plights of our people. You’re a leader whether you know it or not. Don’t get so lost in personal possession or individual achievement that you lose sight of the things that are larger than all of us. Freedom, equality, justice, human rights,qualities of life that have been withheld (or given out sparingly) from our people for generations (400 yrs approximately). A true champion is a man of the people. A true champion makes sacrifices for the people & takes a stand against injustices for those who may not be strong enough or able to do so. A true champion is great inside as well as out. There’s a difference in “Greatness” & being “Great” at something. “Greatness” isn’t a measure of your abilities & accomplishments, “Greatness” is a measure of your morals,integrity & principles throughout life. Oppression knows no neutral ground. Either you’re the oppressed,or you’re the oppressor. What side would you like to believe you’re on? While some will try to make this more critical than I hope for it to seem…it must be said. The world is watching. I have an obligation to myself & those who follow me to address this. Just know I ain’t looking to clown you,I’m just trying to enlighten you,hoping that with better insight you can use your powers for good. Respectfully…-King #USorELSE
