I was going to say that this is a foolish PR move what with people out of work and the government teetering on the brink of a shutdown, but really, is there any good time to intentionally burn a $100 bill? And if someone is torching Ben Franklin, one can bet that Floyd Mayweather Jr. is on the premises.
Floyd was partying with Lil Kim and Gucci Mane at the Velvet Room during the conflagration Sunday night — and we’re told, there were plenty more bills where that came from … Floyd was rolling with STACKS of hundreds.
We should mention: it’s illegal to burn money … so if the Feds decide to pursue an investigation, Floyd could face up to six months behind bars, and, ironically, a $100 fine.
Of course Mayweather isn’t above using counterfeit hundreds to make himself look cool, so take that into consideration here.
