There’s a reason that’s his nickname. It’s because he makes a lot of it. You don’t have to search near and far for evidence of that, either, but the most recent piece showed up on Floyd Mayweather’s Instagram account in the form of a $100 million check that appears to be handwritten in the name of Mayweather Productions LLC by a third grader who just learned how to write in cursive. The check is from 5/2/15, which signifies it was his part of the purse for the Pacquiao fight. But as if posting the photo isn’t cocky enough, his caption made it into one of the most obnoxious posts in the history of Instagram.
The caption was as follows:
Gotta love these backseat drivers so worried about another man’s legacy instead of trying to write their own. Ultimately, I will always have the last laugh. This is just one of my many checks, a cool $100,000,000.00 that I still have every dime of. Y’all still have to work however, I’m happily retired. At the end of the day, it’s them Benjamin Franklins that matter to me, so the jokes on you. I’ve made smart investments, sorry for those who thought that I couldn’t read, write, or count. Y’all call them watches, I call them time pieces. Y’all call them boats, I call them yachts. Y’all call them houses, I call them mansions. Y’all charter jets and we own jets. #TMT
It’s like he was having his assistant type this (because, you know, he allegedly can’t read) and just started snowballing off himself until he began his, “Y’all call them,” rant about time pieces, yachts, mansions, and jets. I’m not sure if he realizes that (besides the part about owning jets) that those are all just synonyms, but we get it, Floyd – you’re loaded. .
