Floyd Mayweather on Jeremy LinOutspoken and flamboyant boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. (pictured left) has never been one to hold his criticism for anyone. Often lashing out at fellow boxers, Money Mayweather has now turned his razor-sharp tongue on rising New York Knick basketball player Jeremy Lin (pictured below), criticizing him via his Twitter account on Monday.

“Jeremy Lin is a good player but all the hype is because he’s Asian. Black players do what he does every night and don’t get the same praise,” tweeted Mayweather Jr. about Lin, who is an American of Taiwanese and Chinese descent.

Mayweather’s words prompted harsh responses from his followers on the fast-moving social network, to which he fired back defiantly:

“Other countries get to support/cheer their athletes and everything is fine. As soon as I support Black American athletes, I get criticized,” Mayweather added. “I’m speaking my mind on behalf of other NBA players. They are programmed to be politically correct and will be penalized if they speak up.”Floyd Mayweather Jr. on Jeremy Lin

Mayweather then lashed out again, saying that his opinion is no different than a recent ESPN segment that ran on the morning sports show “First Take” on Monday, which essentially followed the same angle of Mayweather’s tweet, although with a more balanced approach.

Neither Mayweather nor Lin has made further comment.
