Connor Mcgregor is fighting Floyd Mayweather on August 26th. This is quite possibally the most widly anticipated event in fighting history.
The level of excitement has been raising recently, due to the press conferences that have been taking place between the two fighters. However there was once particular comment made in this press conference, which has caught the attention of the liberal loons.
The comment in question, is obviously the one were McGregor told Mayweather to “dance for me, boy.”
The accusations of racism were then even further heightened when Jimmy Kimmels sidekick Guillermo asked Mcgregor who would win in a fight, him or Sylvester Stallone’s character in the “Rocky III” movie.
Mcgregor then responded by saying “Rocky III, that’s the one where he had that celebrity gym isn’t it? With the dancing monkeys in the gym and all,” he said, before suggesting that he would win.
Floyd then responded to these comments by saying he was “disappointed” in McGregor’s comments.
“I don’t like the fact that he called blacks monkeys, I think that’s totally disrespectful,” he told Sports Illustrated.
Some on social media believe the comment showed that McGregor is a racist.
Smfh now I really want Floyd to win. This is unacceptable!

Soooo y'all just gonna act like Mcgregor isn't a racist cause he's Irish? He literally called the black boxers in Rocky "dancing monkeys"

However there is a defence of McGregor as many point to the fact that he is an irish man, who has been seen on many occasions referring to people as both “boys” and “monkeys”. To him and any other irishman, those words would be like us calling someone a “fool” or “idiot”.
