On Monday night, TMZ Sports caught up with Floyd Mayweather Jr. and his Money Team crew shopping on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills.

While there, the boxing champ was asked if he had any concerns other celebrities would look down on his recent shopping spree, despite the boycott, Mayweather just scoffed and laughed.

"I'm not no follower, I do what the f*** I wanna do," Mayweather tells TMZ.

Gucci is in some hot water when they released an $890 Balacava Knit Top sweater resembling blackface. Artists like T.I. and Spike Lee condemned Gucci and called for a boycott.

While outside the retail store, Mayweather added "You know when everybody else they say, 'Everybody gonna boycott?' I say guess what, this boy gonna get on a yacht and live life."

"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."

He goes on and says "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."

Afterward, TMZ reports Mayweather and his crew stopped by Neiman Marcus, past normal closing hours to shop some more. Dropping another $500,000.
