Floyd Mayweather Jr. has yucked it up with a Chechen dictator in support of Pro-Russian interests in the Ukraine, taken pictures with Donald Trump, and even attended Trump’s presidential inauguration.
So when it comes to something boycotting Gucci over racist sweatshirt resembling blackface, it’s easy to see what side he would be on.
TMZ caught with the boxer and his entourage during a shopping spree at the Gucci store in Beverly Hills … and he scoffed at the notion of a boycott.
“I’m not no follower, I do what the f*ck I wanna do.” When told that Spike Lee, T.I., and others would be upset with him, he laughed.
“You said they’re gonna be upset with me? I love it, I love it, I love it. See, the thing is this, I live for myself. I do what I want to do.”
“I’m not a follower,” Floyd added … “You know when everybody else they say, ‘Everybody gonna boycott?’ I say guess what, this boy gonna get on a yacht and live life.”
Floyd continued, saying, “We all know racism still exists but that’s not gonna stop my drive. I’ve got friends from all walks of life and to me of course, black lives matter first … but my thing is this, I’m gonna continue to go out there live life and be happy.”
He then made it all about himself, saying,
“Half of the people that’s on social media saying, ‘Don’t wear this, don’t wear that,’ I ain’t never seen none of them supporting The Money Team.”
After Floyd was done popping tags in Gucci, he would then go to Neiman Marcus, where the retailer stayed open after business hours, just for him to shop.
