Floyd Mayweather Wants Nothing To Do With The Gucci Boycott
Gucci has been in a well-publicized controversy as of late due to a sweater that resembles blackface. The social media backlash against Gucci has been palpable and many have decided to boycott the brand. While celebrities like Soulja Boy and Spike Lee have spoken out against Gucci, boxer Floyd Mayweather wants nothing to do with the protest.
“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,” Floyd told TMZ. “I’m not a follower. 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 then went on to say how he won’t let the racism in the world get him down and that many of the people boycotting are fake anyway.
“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,” Mayweather explained. “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.”
What do you think of Floyd’s stance on the whole thing? Is he right or is he way off on this?
