Gucci has recently been facing backlash after they released a sweater that resembles blackface. Many celebrities have spoken out against the brand since the sweater’s release, prompting many to boycott the high-end brand.
Recently, TMZ caught up with Floyd Mayweather outside of the Gucci store in Beverly Hills, and it’s safe to say he is not worried about the boycott against the brand.
He said, “I don’t got nothing against nobody. My thing is this, I support everybody, I like everybody, and my thing is this I like to live life and do what I got to do. I’m not no follower, I do what the f**k I wanna do.”
After making his purchase at the store, the photog continued to speak with Floyd, and when they brought up that some people may be upset with him for his decision, he 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, “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 and positive.”
