Floyd "Money" Mayweather, who retired from boxing professionally in 2017, has been known for his over-the-top lifestyle that includes designer clothes, a luxurious car collection, and multi-acre mansions.

Most recently, Mayweather decided to upgrade the interior of his $345,000 Rolls-Royce to accommodate his 1-year-old grandson, Kentrell Jr, by dropping $18,000 on a mink fur-lined car seat.

Just days after the 46-year-old boasted about the new upgrade to one of the many cars he owns, his longtime foe PETA decided to step in and do some boasting of their own.

"This man is hardly a role model for compassion and understanding, but to try to make cruelty look attractive to a child could earn him a medal for corrupting the natural kindness of a minor," the animal rights organization said in a newly released statement.

"PETA is calling on Mayweather to take a jab at teaching kindness, not cruelty, by replacing this monstrosity with faux fur, as most designers, department stores, and consumers have — and PETA would be happy to provide it," PETA added.

This isn't the first time Mayweather has clashed with PETA. The former boxer has proudly worn mink coats in the past and owned exotic animals like tigers. PETA called on the star to put the wild animals in a reputable sanctuary in their natural habitat.

Mayweather has yet to respond to PETA's latest statement or their offer to provide a cruelty-free car seat. Nonetheless, knowing the boxer's love of fur, it may be safe to say his new addition is not up for debate.
