Broner is taking the Mayweather approach to Gucci.
Gucci made international headlines this past week after a sweater resembling blackface was met with some well-deserved scrutiny. Celebrities and athletes took to Twitter saying they would boycott the brand and no longer give Gucci their business. Well, yesterday Floyd Mayweather made it clear that he doesn't care about the boycott at all, and now it seems his fellow boxer Adrien Broner is taking the exact same approach. TMZ Sports spoke to Broner about Gucci where he commented on his feelings, or lack there of, concerning the controversy.
"I don't care! It's just a sweater! Why's everyone getting so bent out of shape about it?!" Broner said.
Mayweather's comments echoed that of Broner as he said:
"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. 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."
What do you think of the boycott? Is it justified or are people overreacting?
