This has been a terrible week for Conor McGregor. Gendarmes in Corsica issued him a summons after a married woman accused him of attempted sexual assault. In sum, the alleged victim claims that the Irish MMA fighter exposed himself to her on his way to the bathroom.
However, McGregor and his team passionately deny these allegations. Then, the Irishman’s manager, Audie Attar, issued a vehement response on behalf of his client. Needless to say, the online reaction to this latest scandal is mixed. True or not, The Notorious just can’t stay out of trouble.
But make no mistake; he definitely cares. The former UFC two-weight champion tweeted and deleted several messages on Twitter before writing a lengthy response on Facebook. Check out his reactions below.
A Twitter user claiming to be a suicide prevention specialist hurt the Irishman by claiming that England can have him in an article. In short, this cut him to the bone and clearly hurt him. It’s easy to forget that celebrities like McGregor are humans too because they appear to be so powerful in their daily lives. He responded:
“Suicide intervention yet ridiculing me in this manner online, at this horrendous time in my life,” he tweeted. “I am trying to stay strong for my kids and the people that rely on me and that love and support me. Thanks for the insults, hypocrite.”
“I can’t go on like this man. I am crushed here.”
After all of this, McGregor wrote a cutting and powerful paragraph on Facebook. Love him or loath him, you can’t deny his passion. UFC President Dana White claims that McGregor will struggle to avoid trouble because he lives such a public lifestyle.
“I will never kill myself no matter how many wish for it,” McGregor wrote. “Try set me up all yous f***ers want over and over and over. The truth will always set me free! Be it baby father claims, rape, indecent exposure, bulls*** WhatsApp group s***. You f***ing name it. Never will I fold!
“The truth is the truth and it gives me wings! I know my character. God bless DNA! God bless CCTV! God bless eyewitness[es]. God bless the truth! The truth is power! I am free! Never will a dime be paid to anyone coming at me with vicious lies. Not now, not f***ing ever. I will fight! And I am only beginning my fight! All these past incidents you will see. They will not be forgotten! I will not allow these people to just accuse me and then disappear into the dark to attempt to ruin someone else life. No f***ing way!”

To sum up, these are dark times for The Notorious. At the moment it is a case of innocent until proven guilty but he will still have to deal with the social media trolls. However, this is partially a problem of his own making. The Irishman is no stranger to the law because of his past problems.
In short, these include an investigation in Ireland into sexual assault. Furthermore, he punched an older man in an Irish bar. Meanwhile, he has spent a couple of nights in prison in Florida and Brooklyn, New York for various acts of vandalism. To top it off, a court banned him from driving for speeding. Perhaps marriage will finally calm him down because something needs to.
McGregor is also currently inactive but media have linked him to a potential clash with Nick Diaz.
