Floyd Mayweather Jr. Lights $100 Bill ... ON FIRE

7/12/2011 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A recession-proof Floyd Mayweather Jr. literally has money to burn -- and proved it by setting a $100 bill on FIRE inside an Atlanta nightclub this weekend.

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.

Fighting inflation, one bill at a time.

It would not surprise me if mayweather goes broke in the next couple of years, and he is fighting into his 40's to pay the bills..
This could be music video money however, a lot of these guys do that. Some of them are not that rich and not that dumb, they just pretend to be rich...
Burn a few stacks of paper music video money and fools think you are fly...

So what?? It's a federal crime, dumbass! Just like every pill I'm a pharmacy needs to be accounted for, same goes for federal reserve notes. It's also a federal crime to kick over somebody's mailbox; so some **** might think it's pretty funny until he gets his ass thrown in jail for it.

Wow. He could have just walked out the club's doors, walked a few feet and handed it to a HOMELESS PERSON on the street. Even if the homeless person used it to buy a bottle of vodka, it still wouldn't have been $$$ burned.

What a loser MAyweather is. Someone needs to KICK HIS AZZ!

Look closely kids. This is how rich athletes go broke. He's a good fighter but he doesn't have much of a brain.

What a Punk.
Is that supposed to make him feel and look kool or something? Makes him look like a gutter punk.

There are people really in need that he could give that too. Sure, it's his dough and can choose to do what he wants, even illegally burn it (which I hope he get's busted for), yet the all around disrespect of the action and lack of self to try and be cool... just makes him stupid.
