Showtime™ Presents: Misogyny, Racism, And Homophobia

You don’t have to pick a side between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor. Floyd’s an unapologetic abuser of women and the Internal Revenue Service, while Conor is a racist dipshit. Last week’s circus of publicity stunts rightfully damaged both parties’ reputations, but another one, curiously, has emerged unscathed: Showtime, a division of CBS, which is actually making all this happen.

CBS is responsible for giving Mayweather’s homophobia, McGregor’s racism, and both fighters’ repeated acts of misogyny a platform; don’t forget that.
