Oscar De La Hoya tells TMZ he accepts Floyd Mayweather's apology -- after Mayweather's team posted an Instagram pic mocking Oscar's substance abuse problems.

Oscar -- who recently checked himself into rehab after falling off the wagon -- was out with a group in L.A. yesterday for a coffee run at a Starbucks and appeared to be in good spirits.

On his way out, we asked Oscar about Floyd's Instagram apology -- and the Golden Boy told us, "It was very nice of him. I greatly appreciated it ... so, thank you."

As we previously reported, Mayweather claims he never authorized anyone to publish the original Instagram image -- and insisted he would "never personally disrespect [Oscar] or anyone else who struggles with addiction."

The apology from Floyd seems very sincere. Best wishes to Oscar, and to anyone, rich or poor going through struggles.

I'm shocked that out of all of these comments no one mentions the fact that Oscar didn't even spend a week in rehab. What's up with that?
