Floyd Mayweather, Kodak Black

Floyd Mayweather Jr and rapper Kodak Black say they will continue wearing Gucci despite calls for boycotts amid accusations of racism.

Gucci was accused of racism after social media users complained one of its sweaters resembled blackface. The ensuing controversy prompted the fashion house to pull the balaclava sweater from online stores.

In an interview with TMZ, the champion boxer said he would continue to drop a mansion payment at Gucci stores.

Floyd says he is not a follower. He refuses to be told what to do by uneducated rappers on social media who constantly call for boycotts over every perceived slight.

"See, the thing is this, I live for myself. I do what I want to do," said Floyd. "I'm not a follower. You know when everybody else they say, 'Everybody gonna boycott?' I say guess what, this boy gonna get on a yacht and live life."

He added: "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."

Rapper Kodak Black also resisted the calls for boycotts against Gucci, Prada and Moncler whose products supposedly resemble blackface.

In a video posted on social media on Tuesday, Kodak said he will not stop wearing Gucci amid the sweater controversy.

Kodak said "there are a lot of ski masks" on the market and "black people do be reaching for no reason, just reaching for little sh-t."

The Man ain't Never Represented the culture, hes is about Money. He has never been for one issue that has affected black people EVER..Actually hes always utilized his voice and platform to Elevate everything and Everyone that's Anti Black.. spoke against Kaepernick, went to trump's inauguration, countless other shit!! I'm not surprised or hurt everybody that's your color ain't your brother. The man no longer identifies as black he is Green.. He a great boxer! That's it!! ..he is morally opposite of who and what I represent..but yall dont care he Got money!! ..I dont fuck with him.. wont ever visit his establishment or purchase another fight he has .. #soulNotForSale #ImsoNotStatusQuo. #FuckGucci and Whoever wear it.

    Aint boycotting something my ass can barely afford. I dont willingly go out and buy this high end stuff anyway ????? This will blow over and they will be wearing it again. Outraged now...be seen in the fall 2019 line in May

  • Trey

    coons gonna coon...I like Floyd but Floyd is always looking for spotlight...and he knows by saying this it will go viral

  • Topic Influencer

    Well Kodak look like he still do fraud and Mayweather cant read. He has no idea what ONE G is let alone double G's.

    I aint give up Pepsi or Shea Moisture so meh. On them

    Floyd say he not a follower...(he been this way since he was a child, so when the teacher told the 1st graders to get out their "i can read" booklets, you already know...) https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5a16feb7886870b58e876a7ffc6b264e7419e743bb55ec579123b82d4a427799.gif

  • Tiff J

    Well May is 3 months from now. LOL That's how long TI called for the boycott to be.... a whole THREE months. :blankstare: Gucci will be alright without our (well not mine cause I can't afford it) money.

  • Topic Influencer

    And Floyd didnt give a fukk about the blacks in Flint who dont have clean water an hour away from his hometown. Why folks think he cares about this? He done told yall he aint giving shit and stop looking for him to care. He doesnt and aint. Move on.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    you said they convinced Floyd that was his monogram, so now he overly identifying with the brand, smh

  • TheCatLady

    I never could afford these high-end brands, so I've been boycotting by default. What I don't understand is, why don't black people with tons of money automatically search for black designers, wear their clothing and make them famous. They're out there. Soulja Boy is removing his Gucci face tat. What? Why did he have that anyway? Why didn't he tat Sean John, Fabu or Karl Kani on his dumb face? Sometimes, we do the most and we simply can't afford to. I know it cliche, but we have to do better.

  • Mielle Downey

    I don't blame Floyd. Black liberals are like robotic sheep. No black liberals have shown outrage toward the va governor who actually wore black face. Stop it with the liberal agenda . The racist in fashion and the Democrats part are long standing .

  • iWasteTime

    Floyd looked so confused.
    I tried not to laugh

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Just looking at the jacket I'm appalled. I can't believe they thought this was okay. I can't believe anyone black would want to wear this. Sad, but too many of our people care more about showing off a designers name on their body, than they care about what that same designer thinks of them. To sit down and sketch black face, design the garment black face, and then for a team to agree that it is marketable because people will buy it, and then run it on the runway, then let it hit stores, means there is a culture and generation that does not value or respect our community. And then to have wealthy people in our community go buy those same garments is mind boggling. The reason our community gets NOWHERE is because we do not stick together, we only look out for ourselves.

    Floyd is a Troll. He found a formula of being flashy and arrogant. There have been several models who've said that he pays them money just to be around him, he doesnt have sex with them, he just has them around as an image .

    He is the most boring champion boxer of all time. He doesnt go in to win, he runs aroung the ring and counter punches

    He uses that villain image because he knows shallow customers will pay for his boring PPV fights in hopes that he will get knocked out.

  • Kimocha

    Sooo Floyd refuses to be told what to do by uneducated rappers on social media who constantly call for boycotts?... Seriously??... I doubt if he can even read any of the designer labels he wears OR even count his own damn money!... Please STFU and get yo damn GED Floyd!!!

    I think that has more to do TI being the one that called for the boycott than it does with Gucci. They can't stand each other and they fought once before. Either way they shouldn't try and force people to support boycotts just cause they black. Floyd and Kodak should be able to do them

  • MJF

    I agree!

  • shauna

    Because you of course just returned from an exhaustive nationwide tour where you polled ever Black liberal and they said they weren't bothered by Northam and his Blackface exploits.

    Well you missed my friends and me and I'm sure several others who think he needs to go. I don't know how outraged we are over a stupid white man doing something stupid as hell in the 80's. It was par for course, so I don't know if outrage would be the correct emotion.

    I will say that designer brands and their missteps have never and will never be our biggest issue as long as we're still supporting our enemies aka Chic Fil A. I personally don't patronize the joint, but many willingly give their dollars that in turn go and support conservative candidates and causes that are against our interests at every turn.

    and plus, do we REALLY expect a ninja that can't read to be able to count past 100 (and I am being generous)? I am convinced he is so frivolous with money because he really does not comprehend monetization. He prolly thinks a million dollars is like 20 "100" dollar bills. Ray Charles had WAAAAAAY MORE better money management skills and he was bline.....he could tell a one dollar bill from a 5, a 5 from a 10, a 10 from a 20, and so on....he was the REAL MONEY TEAM!

    That was different. That sweater could have been in any color and still been offensive. That

    I’m gone need Floyd to follow his ass to the nearest library instead of the nearest Gucci store. Granted it’s his money he can do what he want to do with it. But at the same time, you sound foolish as all hell saying black lives matter first then drop mansion notes in a store that don’t give a damn about it..

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Meanwhile, Princess Kate wore a Gucci gown this week to an event . The rich , white. , and elite that these fashion houses are designing for will continue to purchase these clothes. This will last for a season I predict and it’s back to everything being Gucci , corny, sarcastic, pun intended.
