Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s scathing racist and homophobic video rant about Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao has been burning up the Internet on Ustream.
Mayweather's dark side emerges on the video even though he is apparently kidding with his friends.
And though it's certain that he's not thinking about it, millions of people will be watching this video and judging him. What they see certainly isn't pretty. It's graphic. It's nasty. And it downright mean.
In addition, instead of helping set the stage for a superfight between the two legendary boxers, this might end up keeping the two from ever entering a ring to square off.
Once Pacquiao's trainer and the rest of his entourage see the provocative video, they might say there is no fight until Mayweather comes to them on a bended knee.
Which we know Mayweather will not do.
Mayweather opened up on Pacquiao's ability to speak English, his poor business skills by signing a bad contract with Nike and his overall intelligence.
So there is quite a bit to apologize for, if Mayweather was so inclined.
One thing Mayweather didn't do in the video is hold his tongue.
He insulted pretty much everybody so there might be a line of people waiting to picket him.
Mayweather called Pacquiao "yellow" and threatened to make him cook for him.
He constantly made racist references to sushi and tempura rolls, as he attempted to make his friends laugh.
He also called Pacquiao a midget several times as his buddies chuckled in the background.
Mayweather has been controversial for years, but he always went to the line, seldom crossed it.
This time he did and there might be dire consequences.
In the video, Mayweather goes on to call Pacquiao a "faggot" as easily as if he were calling him his name.
On the video he constantly tries to be funny by threatening to "cook" Pacquiao with cats and dogs.
That might not be something that PETA takes kindly to. Just look at the way the group crucified Michael Vick after his dogfighting incident.
One of the comments on the video that might get him into the most amount of trouble, ironically, was a throwaway line at the end of one of his conversations.
Mayweather says to a friend on the phone that Pacquiao takes "power pellets.”
Of course Mayweather is speaking of PEDs and he says it with certainty.
It will be interesting to see if this leads to any legal action from Pacquiao's camp.
