Ruby Rose, the resident girl crush who recently appeared in the third season of Orange is the New Black, has come under fire after she posted a picture of her posing with boxer Floyd Mayweather. You probably don’t need me to remind you that he had previously pleaded guilty to domestic violence charges.
She posted the photo via her Instagram, which shows her posing happily with “the champ”. You can see it below.
According to TMZ, Ruby met Mayweather while he was training for his latest fight against Andre Berto.
This has met with a wave of disappointment and criticism from her fans, all of this stemming from the fact that the boxer has been charged with numerous counts of domestic and misdemeanour battery, and was sentenced to 90 days in prison after be pleaded guilty to both charges.
One fan said via Twitter: “Floyd Mayweather? A complete douche who’s beats every woman he dates? Disappointed [sic].”
You can see a few more examples below.
