Last week Conor McGregor announced his retirement from MMA and lot of people felt lots of things.

I think mostly, people didn’t care and sensing this, McGregor decided to post a tweet to get his name in the headlines once again.

But instead posting something worthwhile, the profession fighter decided to go for the stupidly racist and insensitive route, as he referred to rival and superior fighter – Khabib Nurmagomedov’s – wife as a towel…

Rather unsurprisingly, the Irishman deleted his tweet after around 15 minutes but by then, the damage had been done.

Bizarrely, the tweet racked up tens of thousands of likes and retweets in it’s short time on the social media site, but it attracted it’s fair share of hate as well.

What a stupid man he is.

And instead of apologising, McGregor doubled down with this…

God he’s awful.
