Conor Reply On If ‘His Comment Have Been Racist’

on

The Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor promotional tour stopped at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Thursday.

The jousting for best trash talk continued between Mayweather and McGregor through 30-minutes of profanities, jokes about body parts. McGregor, who is the current UFC lightweight champion and boasts a mixed martial arts record of 21-3, attempted to clarify his comments directed at Mayweather that some have perceived as racist.

McGregor Said: “I’m very multi-cultured. I’m a multi-cultured individual. I don’t have any ill feelings toward anybody, I don’t even see color. I just wanted to say something and have a little fun with it.”

The controversy stems from McGregor saying at Mayweather at the two previous press events – “Dance for me, boy.”

“I just wanted to address it and play with it in my own little way,” McGregor continued. “It’s stupid and it’s ridiculous and that’s basically what I was getting at.”

During the press conference, McGregor dissed rapper 50 Cent before giving more comments on race.

“A lot of media seem to be saying I’m against black people. That’s absolutely f—ing ridiculous,” McGregor stated. “Did they not know I’m half-black? Yeah! I’m half-black from the bellybutton down!”

The Mayweather vs. McGregor promotional tour will make a final stop on Friday in London at 2 PM ET. The two will fight on August 26, 2017 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
