Floyd Mayweather recently told TMZ Sport that has no iota of care for the Gucci boycott because no one tells him what do or what to spend his cash on.
He said he showed he does what he wants by spending heavily at the store on Monday night.
He said, “I’m not no follower, I do what the f*ck I wanna do,”
Mayweather was then asked how he would react when he finds out that celebrities like T.I, Spike Lee were angry with his stance on the whole thing. He smiled and said, “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.”
He continued, “You know when everybody 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.”
“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.”
“Gucci Ban.” became word on the street after the brand released a sweater that looked like Blackface.
Gucci has since apologized and removed it from their shelves.
