UFC middleweight Darren Till is being investigated by Merseyside Police after sharing offensive posts on his official Instagram page.
Till (18-3-1 MMA) has amassed a large social media following thanks to his erratic trash talk and brash sense of humor. However, a few days ago the Liverpool native apparently crossed the line when he shared a meme mocking transgender pregnancy.
In addition to receiving a temporary ban from the social media platform, Darren Till is also being investigated by Merseyside Police according to a report from LiverPoolEcho.
