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.

This is disgusting. My family and so many others struggle with money, and there are people who are worse off than me that can't afford diapers for their babies or even a single meal so they don't go hungry and this man burns something that would bring so much happiness to them and change their life, if even in only a small way.

TMZ, don't post things like this. People like this man don't deserve the attention of others. I can only hope that if he ever finds himself in a bad financial place, he gets to see something like this happen.

Idiot, many people who are struggling financially now could have used that $100 perhaps to buy food for their kids. Frigging idiot!

That is so insensitive, seeing the climate of the country right now! Does he realize how many children could have been fed with that? There are homeless people dying from starvation? WHO DOES THAT? Where is your sense of dignity? It appears that boxing has destroyed his brain cells. I will never spend another dime watching your fights; and to think I actually liked him.

wow ew    

I couldnt care less for athletes but thats 100 dollars that could've gone to SO MUCH , to a homeless person or a starving child, what's puny to some is a big deal to others.
Here's a few things I could do with 100 dollars:
pay some bills
buy new clothes
buy groceries
buy some clothes for my new born nephew and his brother

Just a few examples. I hope Floyd gets what's coming to him.
Especially black people are and should be the last race to literally burn money.

Floyd is an African American that either has roots from west or central african where most of the conflict are happening (blood diamonds, blood minerals, starvation, child combat, etc.). I wish he would have thought about this before he did it because there is some little boy from Congo or Sierra Leonne that could put it towards 2 months worth of food.
