Two days after making $41.5 million for his fight against Canelo Alvarez, Floyd Mayweather Jr. is again in the news. This time it is his fingers and not his fists that are putting attention on him.

Mayweather posted on his official Instragram account a meme that makes fun of Oscar de La Hoya's substance abuse problem. De La Hoya is Alvarez's promoter and missed the match because he is in rehab.

"Meanwhile in rehab," reads the headline and the caption reads: "Oscar: I gave Canelo the wrong blueprint I was high." Wow.

Mayweather should rethink making fun of people who have substance abuse problems because substance abuse is a serious disease that affects millions of Americans.
