We'll Gucci seems to be having a rough start into Fashion Week!
Earlier this month Gucci received major backlash for promoting a Wool Balaclava Jumper which closely resembled blackface. In response artists such as T.I. and Soulja Boy have decided to boycott the brand, though others seemed to be unfazed.
On Tuesday (Feb. 12), Pro Boxer Floyd Mayweather was seen coming out of the Gucci store with several bags after spending a fortune. Apparently Floyd seems to unfazed and isn't in support of the boycott. As the boxer walked out of the Gucci store he mentioned to TMZ, "We all know racism still exists but that's not going to 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 going to continue to go out there, live life, and be happy."
The statement gained much attention, especially from those that are a part of the Hip-Hop community such as 50 Cent. In response to Floyd's statement 50 responded, "Champ you need a publicist, man you saying all the wrong sh*t fool."
