Taking to his personal Facebook page this afternoon, former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion, ‘The Notorious’ Conor McGregor has addressed his recent arrest for alleged attempted sexual assault and sexual exhibition in Corsica – as well as the worrying series of tweets he penned and deleted yesterday morning.
The Dubliner was released from police custody on Saturday, in relation to an incident which allegedly took place at a bar in the port town of Calvi on September 6th. – in which the 32-year-old is alleged to have displayed his manhood to a young married woman as she made her way to the bathroom.
While the results from “key physical tests” have yet to be made available, McGregor worrying responded to a Twitter use yesterday, who tagged him in an article by the BBC which labels him “English“- penning “I can’t go on like this man. I am crushed here.” before also writing, “[You work in] suicide intervention yet ridiculing me in this manner online, at this horrendous time in my life. 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.“
Taking to his personal Facebook profile, McGregor called the recent allegations against him, “vicious lies” as well as responding to people who’ve called from him to take his own life after his above series of Twitter interactions.
“I will never kill myself no matter how many wish for it. Try set me up all yous fu*king want over and over and over the truth will always set me free!
