T.I. is NOT happy with Floyd Mayweather! The rapper went off on Floyd for being ‘irresponsible’ and ‘insensitive’ after the legendary boxer argued that ‘all lives matter’ in an interview. See T.I.’s angry message to Floyd right here!
While Floyd promoted a boxing event, he got to talking about the Black Lives Matter movement. Despite being African American himself, the 39-year-old boxer took a stance on the issue that didn’t seem to advocate for black people. “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.”
This was apparently not what T.I. — who has made it very known that he’s a Black Lives Matter supporter — wanted to hear. He took to Instagram to call Floyd out for what he said, declaring that his comments were “inconsiderate” and alluding that Floyd has been “brainwashed.” See T.I.’s lengthy post below:

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

Talk about telling someone how you really feel! While T.I., 36, was clearly upset with what Floyd said, he seemingly didn’t want to start anything with the boxing champ over the “all lives matter” comment. As he mentioned, he’s simply hoping to enlighten Floyd. But with a shut-down as intense as this, we’re thinking Floyd (who has gotten into a brawl with T.I. in the past) might not be able to sit back and let T.I. have his way. Floyd has yet to fire back, but we’re certainly eager to see if he’ll speak his mind the way T.I. did!
