We were excited to post about undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather living his best life in Phuket on Wednesday. We were thrilled to see him enjoying kayaking, dinner with friends, and some well-deserved time on a yacht. But now, the retired, 40-year-old boxer has us confused with his latest Instagram of himself standing atop an elephant wearing a harness on the island.

Don’t he know that’s not cool? Floyd, let elephants live their best lives too!

Before his fight with UFC’s Conor McGregor, Mayweather famously said “I’m an elephant, and elephants don’t beef with ants.”

He may be right but just because he feels like one of them doesn’t mean he should strand on his brother’s back.
