Mayweather told a TMZ Sports reporter who ran into him during his shopping spree in Beverly Hills that he doesn't care about the controversy surrounding Gucci selling a balaclava jumper resembling blackface caricature and went right into the shop to drop thousands of dollars on merchandise.

The boxing legend posted a lengthy response on Instagram explaining why he chose not to boycott Gucci and suggest that celebrities are taking part in a fake outraged to sell music.

However, some concerned people have made a decision to boycott Gucci products to further register their displeasure towards the brand and 50 Cent is not excluded in the protest.

Floyd Mayweather has taken a vicious beating over the last few days and it all leads back to his sense of fashion. "I do what I want to do", he said.

Former pound for pound number one boxer Floyd Mayweather was good friends with the rapper real name Curtis Jackson for a significant amount of time during his active career in years gone by. When they say everybody's going to boycott I say this, well this boy going to get on a yacht and live life.

The outlook for consumer spending, which has been underpinned by a strong labor market and cheaper gasoline, is not encouraging. Sales at hobby, musical instrument and book stores plunged 4.9 percent, the biggest drop since September 2008.

50 posted a photo of Mayweather's face with a hand-drawn black sweater and red lips, and captioned it, "get the f- outta here Champ!"

He went on to say "We all know racism still exists but that's not gonna stop my drive".

"Half of the people that's on social media saying, 'Don't wear this, don't wear that, ' I ain't never seen none of them supporting The Money Team", he added.

Gucci removed its controversial garment, that depicted a "blackface" on a luxury sweater amid celebrity backlash.
