Conor McGregor has been involved in some controversy during his press tour with FLoyd Mayweather for saying things that many people consider to be racist. Today, McGregor addressed the accusations of racism by saying that “he’s half black for the waist down” and that he had something for all the black women in the crowd.
During a red carpet interview after today’s press conference, Floyd Mayweather addressed McGregor’s potentially racist remarks during the press tour.
I don’t like the fact that he called blacks monkeys. I think that’s totally disrespectful. Saying a lot of racist things today to black women, i have two black daughters and a black mother… He’s crossing the line, I can’t focus on that right now. I’m here to do a job and my job is to go out there and entertain but he’s out there losing a lot of fans
Later in the night, Conor did address the racism accusations in a serious manner by saying that he thinks it’s completely ridiculous and that he was trying to make light of the situation during today’s press conference
