Floyd Mayweather's ex-girlfriend is infuriated with Conor McGregor after the Irish UFC superstar pulled a "trolling" stunt in which he made reference to her domestic violence incident with the Mayweather.
Back in 2010, the 40-year-old boxing legend was convicted of attacking his then girlfriend, Josie Harris, in a domestic violence incident at Mayweather's Vegas home. He spent two months behind bars for the crime.
This past week, McGregor "trolled" Mayweather for the incident by wearing a Golden State Warriors NBA jersey of C.J. Watson. Mayweather accused Harris of secretly texting the basketball player, which led to the domestic violence incident.
Harris was angered by McGregor drudging up the attack by wearing the jersey, and that he is exploiting her trauma in order to bring more hype to his fight with Mayweather.
The incident sparked attention in the media after Golden State Warriors player, Draymond Green, shared a photo of McGregor, 29, wearing the No. 23 jersey. Green captioned the photo: "We rocking with Floyd not you... take that off bruh @notoriousmma."
McGregor responded in a comment to Green's post by writing: "That's C.J. Watson mate. I don't know who the f**k you are. No disrespect tho kid, keep hustling and stay in school. Now ask yourself why I'm rocking C.J. when I don't know or give a f**k about basketball. I dribble heads off the floor. Not a ball. This is no game here kid."
After McGregor confirmed that he was wearing the jersey to reference the domestic violence incident between Harris and Mayweather, Harris' attorney, Dan Friedlander, delivered a statement regarding the stunt.
"Conor McGregor's exploitation of the event surrounding Mayweather's violent beating of Josie Harris, for the sole purpose of promoting an upcoming boxing match and taunting his opponent in the ongoing media-driven feud between the two fighters, demonstrates not only an insensitivity toward the emotional well being and privacy of the victim of Mayweather's dom. violence, but also a general disregard for the physical and emotional trauma and long-lasting psychological impacts suffered by victims of dom. abuse," the statement read.
"On behalf of Josie Harris, her and Mayweather's three children, and all victims of domestic violence, we ask that Conor McGregor refrain from capitalizing off of the trauma suffered by her and other victims of domestic abuse."
