Floyd Mayweather Seen Partying w/o A Mask In Scottsdale, Mayor Responds To City’s Lack Of Social Distancing: The Images Are Disturbing
Floyd Mayweather is apparently tired of social distancing. According to TMZ, he attended two parties in celebration of Memorial Day Weekend – including a gathering at Scottsdale, Arizona’s International Boutique Nightclub. As shown in captured footage from the party, partygoers did not observe six-feet-apart social distancing guidelines or wear protective masks. Floyd Mayweather was a part of that pandemic-proof crowd.

The Mayor of Scottsdale, Jim Lane, caught wind of the nightclub’s lack of social distancing observance and issued a fiery statement.
“The images from Old Town Scottsdale this weekend are disturbing, and frankly show a real lack of common sense and civic responsibility. Businesses and their patrons need to realize that individually we each play an absolute part in our own personal hygiene, distancing and health courtesies, and each of us also plays a significant part in our city’s health, both physically and economically. We succeeded together in preventing our medical services from being overwhelmed. It was a costly effort; many businesses and individuals paid a huge cost for the success we have had to date…It is imperative that all businesses comply with the governor’s executive orders — to ignore them is to risk faster spread of this disease and further damage to our physical and economic wellbeing.”
Mayor Lane continued:
“In responding to reports about non-compliance to the governor’s orders and public health guidelines, we educate businesses and solicit their cooperation first. I am personally reaching out to the businesses that were shown over this past weekend to be open with large crowds, so that I can discuss with them the importance of our continued progress. There are other steps that can be employed under the state and city emergency declarations if needed — we take these matters very seriously…Now more than ever we need people and businesses to do the right things. Stay home if you are sick or have any symptoms of illness; wash or sanitize your hands frequently; stay six feet away from others wherever possible and cover your nose and mouth when you can’t keep your distance.”
Perhaps Floyd Mayweather thinks his quiet donations towards the coronavirus cause will grant him immunity from the respiratory disease. Last month, he said:
“I am going to continue to do my part. I don’t have to show the world what I am doing. I can do something behind closed doors. It’s not about the money, but the money I will be giving up will be to feed the people and help the people that don’t have a lot. As of right now, in this situation, I will continue to give back and I will never talk about it. As long as God knows I am doing a good deed, that’s all that’s important to me.”
As far as an official reopening of the country, here are Mayor Jim Lane’s thoughts:
“If we choose to respect one another as part of a community effort, we will bring the city and the country back.”
What do you think about Mayweather’s mask-less weekend?
