Fake Conor McGregor letter bashing Floyd Mayweather goes viral with the help of FOX

By Russell Ess - January 6, 2016

An Internet troll won the fight against both Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather Jr. with the help of FOX recently.

Conor McGregor

A fake profile pretending to be Conor McGregor (to clarify Conor McGregor himself did not write the message) put out a response to Mayweather’s recent claims of Ronda Rousey and McGregor finding success due to racism still being prevalent in combat sports.

The following is the letter from the fake profile, which has been deleted:

Dear Mr.Mayweather,

I read the other day that you think racism still exists because I talk shit and am loved but when you did it you were hated…would you like a pad or a tampon? The difference between you and me buddy is that I’m IRISH and you are not. When I fight men,women,children,cats and dogs stop for my fights. Forget using skin colour as an excuse!!
Also the reason why I am loved is because I have never stepped down to a fight…I am not a man who picks and chooses his fights out of fear. You ruined your legacy to a certain degree because you didn’t have the balls to fight Manny for years…excuse after excuse is what the fans kept hearing from you and now your angry your not loved? Who was the man you fought after Manny?? I don’t think a lot of people out there know because it was one of the worst pay per view ratings of all time. Just remember this…you can have all the money and power in the world and drive all the fastest cars but like I said before precision beats power and timing beats speed 😉 enjoy yourself buddy yeah..ya little bitch

Love the man you want to be,
Conor McGregor


FOX picked up the bogus post and posted an article titled, “McGregor’s brutal response ruins Mayweather,” which covered the fake post addressed to Mayweather. It has since been deleted, but not before going viral.

From the Independent.ie:

“The post was left on the page by a profile pretending to be Conor McGregor, from a private Facebook account that lists him as ‘single’ and contains only three photos – two taken from news media websites and one from Conor’s Twitter account.”

“Over 120,000 people liked the fake posts and over 50,000 shared it before it was deleted. The fake profile then went on to set up a ‘Conor McGregor Club’ fan page which 13,000 people liked, despite the real Conor McGregor already having a page with over two million fans on Facebook.”

Do you think Conor McGregor himself should address Floyd Mayweather’s opinion? Share your thoughts in the comments!
