Floyd Mayweather Defends Shopping at Gucci After Blackface Controversy

Mayweather won’t be boycotting Gucci despite their recent Blackface controversy.

LOS ANGELES, CA - JULY 16, 2014: Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. at the 2014 ESPY Awards at the Nokia Theatre LA Live.

Boxer Floyd Mayweather has no problem spending his money on Gucci threads, even after the luxury brand was called out for producing a “blackface” sweater last week.

TMZ caught up with the athlete as he was entering the Beverly Hills retail location. After he was reminded of the current boycott artists such as T.I. and Spike Lee are pushing against the brand, Mayweather told the outlet he was “not no follower.”

“I like to live life and do what I like to do. I’m not no follower, I do what the f*ck I want to do. Because everybody say, ‘Wear this, don’t wear this,’ I’m going to wear what the f*ck I want to wear. I’m about to go into Gucci.”

Mayweather later exited the store with several bags in tow, reaffirming that he’ll do whatever he wants despite anyone taking offense.

“You said they gon’ be upset with me? I love it, I love it, I love it … when they say, ‘Everybody gon’ boycott,’ I say, ‘Guess what? Well, this boy gon’ get on a yacht and live life.’” See the video below.
