Saturday, August 23, 2014

On Thursday, the rapper 50 Cent posted a video on Instagram challenging the boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. to read one page of a Harry Potter novel aloud "without starting and stopping or ------- up." If Mayweather takes the challenge and completes the task, 50 Cent said he will donate $750,000 to any charity of Mayweather's choosing. The two men are former business partners who had a public falling out over $2 million Mayweather allegedly owes 50 Cent from a production company they began together.

I'm not perceiving where the red meat for yellow dogs resides in this story.
TMZ wins.

The challenge has been reduced to reading "Cat in the hat" on Jimmy Kimmel's show. A radio station played Floyd's attempt to record a drop for them. He reads as well as a 3rd grader.

What a crappy thing for 50 cent to do. He knows of the man's weakness and he is trying to embarrass him.

A subhuman piece of humanity...

Someone reading at the third-grade level can't read the first Harry Potter book? Hm.

That said, okay, yeah, this is a catfight between two people who had a falling-out.

But I have to wonder: The guy's a successful boxer with time to start production companies (one anyway)? Why then does he not have time to learn to read (at a higher level)? That's pretty important for a businessman to be able to do...
