Floyd Mayweather refuses to join the Gucci boycott after they released a sweater that resembles blackface. He was literally shopping in the Gucci store the next day.

T.I., who is one of the many celebs speaking out against Gucci and pushing people to boycott, released a song just for Floyd called, “F*ck N*gga.” 50 Cent joined the Floyd hate train, uploading a picture of kid-like handwriting, of what he claims to be Floyd’s words. We know the drama between 50 & Floyd goes pretty deep.

Floyd responded on his Instagram, posting a a few pages worth of reading. His caption read, “These people are playing hopscotch. First, they’re supposedly boycotting the NFL but as soon as the Super Bowl came 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.”

The guy who runs Gucci’s parent company Kering, François-Henri Pinault, released his statement about the mistake, “We didn’t understand the sensitivities of the African-American community, which is reflected in that mistake,” Pinault told the media … “We can’t be content with saying we’re sorry.”

Pinault also says he will also push for more cultural sensitivity training with Gucci employees.
