Katie Couric Bailed On Floyd Mayweather’s Fight Because He’s Terrible

  • Some of the most famous people in the country attended Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao’s fight in Las Vegas this past weekend, but Katie Couric and her husband weren’t having it. They flew to Vegas with tickets for the event, but Couric grew “uncomfortable” when she found out that Mayweather banned two female reporters from the event for criticizing Mayweather’s horrid history of domestic abuse (Mayweather’s people later denied this). Finally, some celebs who aren’t condoning his cowardly bullshit! [Jezebel]
