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.

Wow, what a bunch of sad and jealous people commenting here. It`s his money to do with as he pleases. I`m glad he did that, just to irritate you low rent morons.

He may be rich, however, that being said, he is still nothing more than a ghetto punk! He is also an embarrassment to the African American community!

My guess is he'll be the type to blow all his cash early. When his career is done, he'll have nothing to show for it....He'll think back to that $100 bill he threw away and wish he had it.

Seriously man, if you want to throw your money away walk out the door and give it to someone in need!

When I saw this headline, the first thing I thought is, Hey, that's illegal.

Seriously, if these idiots have such disregard for money why not throw a $100 bill at a homeless person. This is all ego. It reminds me of the awful skit on MADTv with Stuart saying "Look what I can do" in an attempt to get attention from people. That's all this is about. Getting attention by trying to communicate that you have so much money that you can just burn it.

Lindsay stole a necklace and was convicted.

This idiot stole $100 from our economy. Convict him too.

He doesn`t have to give it to charity, the homeless or any of you. He made it, it`s his to do with as he pleases. Why don`t all you jealous people go make your own money, then you can do with it as you please. I could care less if he burns every penny he has.

"M" with that porch monkey comment, shows just how low you are.

Look at all that bling he´s wearing --- diamond bracelets, a huge diamond and jewel ring, a diamond-encrusted pendant. With revolting displays of consumption like this, is it any wonder the world laughs at Americans?

He will be bankrupt in 10 years and that is a promise! He spends way too much money and is not always going to be rich.
