50 Cent Says He’ll Donate $750,000 If Floyd Mayweather Jr. Can Read ONE Page Of Harry Potter! Jimmy Kimmel Supports The Shady Challenge!

50 cent als ice bucket challenge floyd mayweather read one page harry potter book

Woooaahhhh! 50 Cent sure knows how to get under people’s skin!

The rapper posted a video for his ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, which basically just turned into a $750,000 donation IF boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. could read one one page from any Harry Potter book.

That should be easy for a 37-year-old person, right?

Well, radio show The Breakfast Club dug up some old audio of Floyd trying to do a read for their show, and it’s kind of painful to listen to (below)!

THEN things got even wilder when Jimmy Kimmel got involved! 50 explained the NEW challenge, throwing even more shade, saying:


Now the question is… will Floyd do it?! The man has a lot of pride, so only time will tell!

Here's the thing, though: if Floyd really does have trouble reading, nobody should be laughing at it. This should be encouragement for him to try for a good cause, and maybe it'll help him get to a reading level he'll eventually be comfortable with!

We hope he does it, and we hope it's a POSITIVE experience for him!

    Publicly shaming somebody for what appears to be illiteracy…For shame.

    I don't feel bad for Floyd. He's always been overly cocky and treats people like shit. When you have a chip on your shoulder it's bound to be knocked by somebody.

    And sorry but this is way too hilarious! This is why it's important to stay in school regardless of your athletic talent and ability to "win."

    Re: Candace – Exactly. I 100% agree with you.

    Illiteracy is no joking matter.

  5. 50 Cent is right says – reply to this


    50 Cent was a good friend to Mayweather, so if he brought the illiteracy challenge upon him it's because the guy CAN'T READ!

    I'm not sure how he can sit there in front of his kids and tell them to go to school if the guy hasn't even graduated high school. Lol

    Re: Elizabeth – Well thanks ma'am. :)

    It sounds like Mayweather is dyslexic rather than illiterate. A lot of dyslexic kids I've worked with read like that.

    How is a person not being able to read funny? No matter how successful a person is the world is a different place for them without the ability to comprehend the written word. Not to mention what is this saying to all the children in the world who have trouble reading or a learning disability? This is not funny. It is very sad. Everyone deserves to know how to read. Somewhere a public school system dropped the ball. I'm disappointed in 50 Cent (not that I expected much) but I'm especially disappointed in Jimmy Kimmel. I thought more of him than that. Pathetic.

    and why didnt you write about all the shit Floyd has said and done to 50?
    No you didnt because you just wanna start shit.
    Floyd has for ages talked shit about 50, and he hasnt talked back until now.

    Besides, Floyd is what, 25 years old, and he is illiterate, in America, in 2014?
