Floyd Mayweather reacts attacks he received for refusing to boycott Gucci


Many in the black community had called for the boycott of the designer’s product because of a sweater he released which they say is an insult to blacks because it reminded them of the Blackface racist caricature.

Some of those who have joined the boycott are Soulja Boy, T.I, 50 Cent, Spike Lee etc.

However, Floyd Mayweather isn’t joining the trend and was seen shopping at a Gucci store recently where he gave the below response to questions asked.

I’m not no follower, I do what the f*ck I wanna do. You know when everyboy else they say, ‘Everybody gonna boycott?’ I say guess what, this boy gonna get on a yacht and live life.

“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, Floyd Mayweather said.

Receiving lots of backlash for his comment above, the boxer lashed out at his critics by exposing their hypocrisy as seen in the quote below.

“These people are playing hopscotch. First, they’re supposedly boycotting the NFL but as soon as the Super Bowl cam around, they were either at the game, watching it on TV or throwing Super Bowl parties. Last week,it was R. Kelly, this week it’s Gucci. People boycott for trend but turn around and still shop at H&M and watch the NFL.”

Floyd Mayweather went on to air more of his views in the screenshots seen below.
