There is a hoax story making the rounds on social media that has Floyd Mayweather attending a Donald Trump rally in Youngstown, Ohio, wearing a headscarf of the type commonly worn by Muslim women. He supposedly had his fists out and dared anyone to take him on, saying:
I'm just a little Muslim lady. Anybody wanna try to punch a Muslim? I said, ANYBODY WANNA TRY TO PUNCH A MUSLIM?! COME ON, TAKE A SHOT! MONEY'S READY!
The story is of course fake: it originated on satirical sports news website The Kicker and the picture that goes with the story is an obvious photoshop. But seen out of context on social media the title, headline, photo and source look quite convincing:
