Last week Floyd Mayweather was given an exotic tiger from India as a Christmas gift for his visit to Russia. Mayweather posted a photo on Instagram of the tiger and asked his followers to help him name the tiger. Some followers suggested names while others were fixated on the concept of Mayweather actually owning a tiger. Chrissy Teigen took to twitter to share her thoughts on Mayweather’s pet tiger.
I’m okay with people having pet tigers because it increases their chances of being eaten by a tiger

In an interview with Fight Hype when asked about Chrissy Teigen’s comment, the boxer claimed to not know who Teigen was and stated that she only did it to get attention. Mayweather also mentioned Chrissy Teigen’s husband John Legend and stated that he doesn’t have anything negative to say about him.
“The thing is I’ve never had anything negative to say about John Legend, I really don’t even know what his wife does, whoever she may be. I’ve never seen John Legend’s wife in my life. If I did, I probably just don’t remember it. But the thing is this: I’m pretty sure she has a lot going on in her life, but you know, I’m something to talk about, so that can be something else. I am something to talk about. You see, when she spoke on me, she got her name in the public eye, so that’s kind of cool of her. I said this many, many, many years ago. I’m not perfect, I can contradict myself, but I think that people spend too much time worried about what other people are doing.”
PETA an organization against animal cruelty also took to Twittter to comment on Mayweather’s new pet.
