Floyd Mayweather Stands Behind Jeremy Lin Tweet, But Admits He Has Ghost Tweeter
If you have a ghost tweeter, then you shouldn’t be on Twitter.
It is 140 characters, you aren’t writing War and Peace. There are Twitter apps on every electronic device known to man, doesn’t make sense to have a yes man do it for you.
Mayweather can be a walking contradiction at times and this is a perfect example.
Mayweather admitted that he doesn’t even do his own tweeting. So who does it?
“I can’t tell you. It’s a secret. But it’s not me,’’ he said. “I’ve got more than one person who works on my Twitter page. But did I tell them what to tweet? Yes I did.”
He added: “Do I regret what I said? Absolutely not. I stand by what I said and I meant what I said.”
“It’s OK for Miguel Cotto to represent the Puerto Rican fans and represent the Puerto Rican flag,” Mayweather said. “I’m a black American. I believe in supporting my own first. That’s where I come from. They can feel my struggle if they come from the same background that I come from. That’s what I’m going to stand by.
“It’s so crazy. I’m not racist at all. I have Jewish people that work for me. Dominican, Mexican, Puerto Rican, white people who work for me. One of my best friends, Kip, is a white guy. All-American. That’s my guy.’’
Not the I have white friends defense, that is what white people do when they are called racist, they always say they have a black friend. I don’t think Mayweather is racist, he just has a fight to promote.
You notice how he brought Miguel Cotto into the conversation.
Mayweather knows what he is doing, even if he doesn’t know what is being Tweeted from his account all the time.
