Mayweather Issues Public Apology For Controversial Gay Slurs Slung At Conor McGregor

Floyd “Money” Mayweather has publically apologized for using a homophobic slur when trash talking UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor.

Last month, during their world press tour, Mayweather yelled gay slurs at McGregor, while the two were holding a press conference in London.

In the video below, you can hear the controversial things Mayweather said to his upcoming opponent.

Since the incident, Mayweather has publically apologized for the language he used at the press conference.

“Like I said before, it’s certain boundaries we just don’t cross,” Mayweather said in a recent interview with ESPN. “It’s OK if he wants to say certain things. Even in the press tour when I said something, I didn’t want to be negative towards lesbians or gays when I said something to him. So, I apologize.”

Mayweather will come out of retirment to fight McGregor in just over two weeks.

Mayweather vs. McGregor will take place Aug. 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
