Metta World Peace didn’t appreciate boxing legend Larry Holmes’ most recent comments about Floyd Mayweather when he called him crazy, irresponsible and said he would blow all of his money. According to TMZ the NBA superstar even accused Holmes of “bringing down” the black community by his public criticism of Mayweather.
After reading Larry’s quotes, Metta blasted the guy on Twitter … saying, “Larry Holmes should never call out another product of slave in public.”
Peace explained that Larry should be supportive of Floyd because “our community was not fortunate to have finance savvy parents.”
“With that said, instead of guys like Larry Holmes bringing down , he should uplift the ghettos.”
Metta continued, “People like Larry should be retrieving lost and burnt Black history in Black History books rather than bringing down Black Legends.”
He concluded … “Support and Love is better than hate. Loving your neighbor is better than War… Written by Metta the Hood Hippie.”
I see where MWP is coming from. Black people should uplift each other more especially in public. Do you agree with MWP or do you think Holmes’ criticism of Mayweather was fair?
