(AllHipHop News) Floyd Mayweather and his TMT brand are doing their best to distance themselves from Baton Rouge cop killer Gavin Long.
Long, of Kansas City went on a cop killing spree on his 29th birthday Sunday in which he killed three police officers and wounded three others.
The attack is believed to be retaliation for the unfortunate murder of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge by police on July 5. The killer was also a former Sargent in the Marines.
According to TMZ, Mayweather and his brand felt the need to distance themselves because Long had actually previously posted several video rants to YouTube in which he was sporting a TMT hat and a TMT sticker on his chair.
“Gavin Long is not member of TMT by any means,” Floyd’s rep stated. “Floyd doesn’t want the TMT brand to be affiliated with the violent act Gavin has caused and neither Floyd nor anyone else from TMT knows him.”
“He is just a random guy who supported the brand but we don’t support him and what he did to those police officers,” the rep for Floyd Mayweather added.
Long was eventually murdered by police in a shootout following the shootings.
