Floyd Mayweather seems adamant, hopelessly lenient towards stirring up the pot, and pissing off the competition, but outside the octagon. Mayweather recently implied Conor McGregor's popularity was more a result of his skin color than anything else:

"And what's so crazy, I don't really know the McGregor guy; never seen him fight. … They say he talk a lot of trash and people praise him for it, but when I did it, they say I'm cocky and arrogant. So biased! Like I said before, all I'm saying is this, I ain't racist at all, but I'm telling you racism still exists."

Not chill Mayweather, not chill at all.

McGregor shut this little spell down by releasing a statement that was all at once, articulate, methodical, and appropriate. Here's an excerpt off McGregor's lengthy, well-rounded Instagram response:

Floyd Mayweather, don't ever bring race into my success again. I am an Irishman. My people have been oppressed our entire existence. And still very much are. I understand the feeling of prejudice. It is a feeling that is deep in my blood.

In my family's long history of warfare there was a time where just having the name 'McGregor' was punishable by death. Do not ever put me in a bracket like this again. If you want we can organise a fight no problem. I will give you a fair 80/20 split purse in my favour seen as your last fight bombed at every area of revenue.

At 27 years of age I now hold the key to this game. The game answers to me now.

Suffice to say, we'd pay a whole lotta' dough to see these two exchange blows sometime soon.

Who do you think would take home the W?

Giant man-toddler and "Most Hated Man in America" Martin Shkreli just can't stop digging that hole.

The guy who raised prices of a life-saving cancer and AIDS drug by over 5000 percent is really, really mad right now.

Why is he mad?

Because Bernie Sanders wouldn't accept his campaign donation.

He wasn't feeling the Bern, so he went and fractured his wrist.

OR DID HE?

A reverse image search shows that his "fractured wrist" is just a stock image.

What do you have to say about that, Mr. Shkreli?

We talked about this stand up teen who knocked down a bully picking on a blind kid yesterday and it looks like further justice has been served.

The authorities and social media have gotten involved.

New York Daily News put together a comprehensive story about the fight:

A California high school bully who was thrown to the ground after beating up a partially blind student was arrested Thursday, police said as the teen who stopped the assault spoke out for the first time.

The teen tormenter, Noah, was arrested for misdemeanor battery and released to his parents after a video of him hitting his visually impaired peer, Austin, at Huntington Beach High School circulated on social media, police said.

[Cody Pines, the teen who stopped the bully] was hailed a hero online and by his peers for his actions, although Pines said he "didn't really want to hit him" in his first interview Thursday.

"But when you punch a blind kid, that's what made me so mad," Pines told FOX LA. "I kinda regretted it but I kinda didn't because if I didn't Austin would've been more hurt."

Pines, a former football player, said he had seen other videos of bullies "beating up kids and getting away with it" and told himself he would never let that happen if he witnessed it.

Teresa White said she is "proud of our grandson for standing up for that young man."
