LGBT activists condemn Floyd Mayweather's use of anti-gay slur

16 July 2017

Undefeated boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. infuriated the LGBT community by shouting a racial slur at Conor McGregor during the London stop of the #MayMacWorldTour on Friday.

Both men hurled insults at each other all week, with McGregor being accused of racism when he told Mayweather to "dance for me, boy" during the media tour stop in Toronto.

Ironically, the homophobic slur came after Mayweather tore into McGregor over comments that were allegedly racist in nature.

"You're a punk, fa**ot, ho!" "You hoe", Mayweather stated on stage at the SSE in Wembley. Mayweather used Dana White in attempt to belittle McGregor, comparing him to a prostitute.

"People are so touchy on words".

"Here's the thing", Lovato said when she was asked by gossip website TMZ's cameras, "Floyd is obviously a boxer and he's obviously very very good at it, but Conor's insane". I think what he was trying to do was to switch it up and get the people back in his favor. If we'd have kept going I'd have probably been like 'right, fuck it.' I think that's why I'm so buzzing right now because it's wrapped, do you know what I mean? It is what it is. Some dirty tactics out there, but that's what to expect.

The cynical among the fight business have been mentioning all week how Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor could very well end up good friends after their August 26th fight in Las Vegas.
