Yesterday, 50 Cent issued a challenge to Floyd Mayweather. Fiddy claimed that if Floyd could read "one page of a Harry Potter book" then he would donate $750,000 to the charity of Mayweather’s choice.

He then threw a bucket of ice water over a a railing because he’s 50 Cent:

50 Cent Feuds With Floyd Mayweather

50 and Floyd have beef for unknown reasons, but what was first taken as a good-natured diss is now being considered a step too far by some, as audio released today reveals that Mayweather really might struggle with illiteracy: 

That clip was released today by an NYC radio show. Floyd’s sad struggle to read a brief promo message begins around the 2:10 mark, but listen to the whole thing to hear 50’s revised challenge:


"I got a phone call from my man Jimmy Kimmel," says 50. "Jimmy said if Floyd accepts the challenge he’ll put it on the show…We don’t want to put pressure on you. We know you can’t pronounce the words in that Harry Potter book, so we’ll let you read the Cat in the Hat."

Many are accusing the Power 105.1 of taking 50’s joke to a cruel extreme and openly mocking Mayweather’s illiteracy.

Floyd can’t read; 50 Cent can’t throw a baseball…we all have our shortcomings!
