McGregor has been facing accusations of racism after he told Mayweather to ‘dance for me boy’ during a Los Angeles press conference.

The UFC Lightweight Champion addressed critics in Brooklyn during another stop on the press tour.

He said:

A lot of the media seem to be saying I’m against black people.

That’s absolutely fucking ridiculous! Do they not know I’m half-black?

Yeah! I’m half-black from the belly button down.

And just to show that that’s squashed, here’s a little present for my beautiful, black female fans.

These comments have only intensified the accusations though and Mayweather in particular isn’t happy claiming that McGregor disrespected black people.

The undefeated welterweight boxer reacted to McGregor’s response and his interview with Jimmy Kimmel Live’s Guillermo Rodriguez which saw him refer to black people as ‘monkeys’.

Mayweather told MMA Fighting:

He totally disrespected my daughter, he disrespected the mother of my daughter, he disrespected black women and he called black people monkeys.

Conor McGregor, you can’t disrespect black women, you can’t disrespect black people period. We’ve been through a lot. We’ve been through a lot.

McGregor does seem to have taken trash talk too far but audiences are still loving him.

Today the pair are touching down in London to finish up their world press tour.
