Floyd “Money” Mayweather likes to remind you that he lives life his way.
TMZ caught Mayweather en route to a shopping spree and questioned the former fighter about his position. His response was candid and pure “Money”.
Floyd Mayweather says he doesn’t give a DAMN about the Gucci boycott — telling TMZ Sports no one tells him what to do or what to buy … and that’s why he dropped a FORTUNE at the store last night.
“What controversy? I don’t got nothing against nobody. I support everybody, I like everybody. I like to live life and do what I like to do. I’m no follower I do what the f*&k I want to do because everybody says wear this or don’t wear this, I do what I want to do. I’m about to go into Gucci.”
“You said they’re going to get upset with me? Oh, I love it. I live for myself. When they say everybody’s going to boycott I say this, well this boy going to get on a yacht and live life. We all know racism still exists but that’s not going to stop my drive. I’ve got friends from all walks of life and to me of course black lives matter first but i’m going to continue to go out there, live life, and be happy and be positive. I wear what I want to wear when I want to because half of the people ot there on social media saying dont wear this and don’t wear that I aint never seen them supporting The Money Team.”
Gucci removed its controversial garment, that depicted a “blackface” on a luxury sweater amid celebrity backlash. Entertainment figures like T.I., Soulja Boy, and Spike Lee have all supported a boycott of the brand. Soulja Boy has gone as far as laser removal of a GG logo tattoo between his eyes.
However, Mayweather joins rapper Kodak Black, who feels that the controversy is overblown. Many entertainers have expressed their disappointment with Mayweather for his comments.

Mayweather has consistently shown that his allegiance is to the dollar only and he does not believe in any causes but his own. Although he is retired, when Mayweather speaks the world still listens.
Unfortunately, what comes out of his mouth many times does not move the needle positively.
