Floyd Mayweather Caught on Video Rejecting Fan’s Picture Request Because his Fingernails Were Painted

Over the weekend a popular retired boxer was caught on video turning down a fan’s request to take a picture with him allegedly due to the teenager having painted nails.

According to TMZ Sports, undefeated boxing champion, Floyd Mayweather was seen on a mobile phone video clip rejecting a teenage boy’s request to take a photo with him and stated that it’s because the fan had his fingernails painted.

Mayweather, along with his bodyguards, attended the Los Angeles Clippers versus Memphis Grizzlies basketball game at the Staples Center on Saturday. After the contest was over, a teenaged boy approached Mayweather and wanted to see if he could get a shot with the retired boxer. Mayweather rejects his request as his bodyguards move in to prevent the boy from accessing him. In the video clip below, you can hear Mayweather saying, “You got painted nails, I don’t take pictures with guys with no painted nails.”

The interaction caused a shocking reaction from the fan. As Mayweather is seen walking away, you hear the young fan say, “Damn bro, Floyd’s a homophobe.”

As the bodyguards block him from Mayweather and they start to walk away, the fan then says, “Floyd doesn’t want to take a photo with me ‘cause my nails are painted. Bruh, really? I didn’t mean to rush him like that.”

TMZ also reports that witnesses had stated that Mayweather had been taking pictures with several other fans and didn’t turn down any other requests.

In a later update, a representative from Mayweather’s camp said that Floyd didn’t take the photo because he was in a rush to leave the arena after the basketball game. The rep also clarified that the teenager’s accusation of Mayweather being homophobic couldn’t be further from the truth.

On Monday, via his Twitter account, Mayweather read an open letter to Brooklyn Nets player, Kyrie Irving for standing up for what he believes in.
