If you see Floyd Mayweather in public make sure your man hands do not have decorations. The sports legend recently denied a man with painted fingernails a selfie.

As spotted on The Grio the championship boxer attended the Clippers vs Grizzlies NBA game at the Staples Center on Saturday, October 23. Naturally, his appearance caused a stir amongst fans who were nearby. While he was exiting the facility a man asked him to take a picture with him and the response has made headlines. According to the man he was told no because his finger nails were colored. In the video the Mayweather is heard responding “You got painted nails, I don’t take pictures with guys with no painted nails”.

As expected the young man was dejected. “Damn bro. Floyd is a homophobe. You guys saw that first bro. Floyd didn’t want to take a photo with me because my nails are painted. Bro really?” he asked rhetorically. While the boxing promoter isn’t a fan, the male nails the trend continues to soar in popular culture. Some of his entertainment peers who have started to decorate their hands include A$AP Rocky, Lil Yachty, Post Malone, Brad Pitt, MGK and Harry Styles.
