Mayweather Reporter Fight Over Justin Bieber

Mayweather, reporter spat over a question about Justin Bieber. Floyd Mayweather told a reporter that her question regarding his friendship with Justin Bieber could be seen as racial profiling. Floyd Mayweather called out Peggy Kusinski, a reporter for NBC as he was promoting his upcoming rematch with Marcos Maidana. The reporter took to Twitter to correct Mayweather.

Mayweather to reporter: do not ask me a question about my relationship with Justin Bieber because that is racist and this is America I have the right to have whom ever I want as friends.

While promoting his highly anticipated rematch against Marcos Maidana that is set to take place this fall in Las Vegas, Floyd Mayweather Jr spoke to NBC Chicago’s Peggy Kusinski.

Peggy Kusinski asked few questions about Marcos Maidana and the millions he will make from the fight before pivoting to Floyd Mayweather’s personal life.

The Illinois based reported asked the athlete if his friendship with Johnny Manziel and Justin Bieber were authentic or was it all huge PR and marketing schemes.

Visibly upset by the question, the boxer tried to stay calm and gave a diplomatic answer by explaining that Johnny Manziel is a great football player who has yet to reach his full potential in the NFL.

Not quite pleased with Mr Mayweather’s non controversial response, the reporter interjected the following line to cause a little drama:

“You and Bieber, people think that’s the oddest matchup, you two together.“

She went further by asking the flamboyant fighter does he listen to the music that Justin Bieber has been releasing.

Floyd Mayweather gave the reporter the money quote she was eagerly seeking by telling her:

“To me So that’s racial profiling.You don’t know what kind of music I like, this is America and with be being Floyd Mayweather, he likes and loves everyone.”

After the comment, the athlete who has been seen partying with 50 Cent, Lil Wayne and T.I. and his wife Tiny in the past walked off the interview.

The reporter took to Twitter to defend herself by tweeting:

“Big fan of @FloydMayweather but no it’s not racial profiling to ask how he’s friends with Bieber! Lol.”

Floyd Mayweather and Marcos Maidana are set to fight on September 13 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
