If your weekend got a little out of hand and your Instagram is littered with videos of you totally embarrassing yourself then worry not - at least you didn't reach Floyd Mayweather-levels of cringeworthy behaviour.

The boxer was filmed being pulled around by his pet tiger in his hotel room, and he clearly thought he looked very, very cool.

One of the Mayweather's entourage posted the clip of 'Money' struggling to contain the wild animal on its leash whilst it bears its teeth and looks fed up of the photoshoot. His other tiger (of course) is seen in the background.

The American boxer sparked controversy back in 2015 when he shared that he had received a baby tiger from India as a 'one-of-a-kind Christmas present.' Not exactly the description that springs to mind for a wild animal.

The Senior Vice-President of Communications at PETA said: "Tigers do poorly as 'pets.' They belong in their native habitats, not in a cage in a celebrity's home as a show-off prop, 100 percent certain to be discarded to a roadside zoo or a cheap circus or to meet some other tawdry end after they become too strong to handle and show a will of their own.

"PETA appeals to Floyd Mayweather to be a real champ for animals and allow his "Christmas present" to be moved to a wildlife sanctuary" he added.

Even aside from the ethical implications of keeping a big cat meant to live outdoors in a 5 star hotel room with children around, it is hard to ignore the fact that a 40 year old man parading a tiger around as a symbol of wealth and status is quite the cringer.

Like a five year old waving around his tamagotchi proudly on Christmas morning, but with a sprinkling of animal cruelty.
