Conor McGregor said some very racist stuff during his promo in the upcoming Floyd Mayweather fight which upset the African American community.
On two different occasions during the tour — once in Los Angeles on Tuesday and again in Toronto on Wednesday — McGregor said to Mayweather, “Dance for me, boy,” in a mocking tone.
McGregor responded Thursday night at Barclays Center during the third stop on the three-country trip.
“A lot of media seem to be saying I’m against black people. That’s absolutely f—ing ridiculous,” McGregor said to more than 13,000 fans at the Brooklyn arena. “Do they not know I’m half black? Yeah! I’m half black from the belly button down. And just to show them that’s squashed, here’s a present for my beautiful, black female fans.”
