Manny Pacquiao went off on Floyd Mayweather in a recent interview and became the latest Rhodes Scholar to attack him for his lack of education. Mayweather never graduated high school, which makes sense because punching boxers and women in the face does not require a strong grasp of civics. Manny joined in on recent digs by 50 Cent and Nelly, who both received their MFAs in criminal justice from prestigious crack dens. Pacquiao thinks Mayweather’s obnoxious behavior may be due to the fact that he never completed that 102 course where they teach you not to be a sociopath:
“I realize why he is like that. I understand sometimes when the people are not educated they just talk to talk. He sets a very bad example.”
Mayweather’s behavior is probably due less to his Lifetime movie shameful secret that he can’t read and more a magnitude of scarred prefrontal lobe tissue. If he were going to begin a regimen to enlighten himself he may want to start with a brush up on basic finance, because I’m currently scoping out how to low bid his gold toilet on Ebay once he inevitably blows through his fight money. As for Pacquiao, having a GED doesn’t qualify you to chastise other punch drunk self promoters.
