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.

Today when we have a Brother in the White House setting new examples for our children,it's a shame to see other brothers giving people reason to capitalize the "N" in th "N" Word.
I am ashamed of you.

Would yall stfu about ppl starving in the world? He has charities and donations for that..pus there is plenty more money where the money he burned came from. Like he can't give that away...he's not entitled to feed the starving anyway if he didn't want to.. He made his money. Let him burn it if he likes. Free country.

He was wrong and disgusting to burn this money. I cant stomach him. I would not let all these other stars off the hook, for all the money they burn on bull crap, on jewlry and nonsense stuff instead of giving money to organizations that they should be giving to. You sit and praise them, but just because you are famous and wealthy does not mean you should not be giving, especially when God blessed you with so much.

Please tell him that if he has money to burn, you know a poor soldier who would like for him to pay off my mortgage. Instead of doing stupid things like this he could do some good with it.

He'd say it's a fake dollar bill in his defense. Just the same this guy has a lot of pretenses. I hope his fight with Pacquaio does not push through or it will add to Gayweather's arrogance after gaining millions more. Let him die in his debauchery, anyway we already know who will win that fight, no matter what!

As most "late postrers", I am guilty of not reading all of the previous comments, but I am certain that it has been noted,that it is a FELONY to deface or destroy any US CURRENCY. So if he was that crazy or high at that time, he ought to find a way to correct, resolve, and seek redemption for his criminal activities.
By the way, his best defense is that the money was FAKE.
