Floyd Mayweather Sorry For Pic About Oscar De La Hoya's Substance Struggles

    People just don't think before they do things!

    Floyd Mayweather Jr. is now attempting damage control with a full apology for posting a pic to Instagram that makes light of Oscar De La Hoya's substance abuse addiction, claiming he never approved the photo to go up.

    Which means someone should probably be fired for being so insensitive and YOU SHOULD RUN YOUR OWN SOCIAL MEDIA SHIZZZ!

    Fans want to interact with the real you anyway — why not give it to them?? But we digress: the main issue here is that something awful was posted, and now Floyd is saying he's super sorry about it.

    The photo was posted after he beat Canelo Alvarez, who is a part of Oscar's boxing promotion company. The picture showed a crying De La Hoya along with the caption:

    What a disgusting thing to say, whether or not it was intended to go up!

    Here's Floyd's apology (after the fallout, of course):

    This is pretty much status quo for people caught doing awful things on social media, to apologize and say what they think others want to hear. It's hard, though, because it happens so often — who do we trust is REALLY sorry for what they've done??

    Seems like PR damage control to us!
