Conor McGregor Receives Backlash For Saying N-Word While Rapping To Notorious B.I.G

Conor McGregor has sparked backlash after saying the n-word while rapping to Notorious B.I.G on Instagram video.

On Sunday, the Irishman was at his pub The Black Forge Inn with friends and family and took to social media to share videos and pictures of his evening.

But the two-weight UFC champion has caused a series stir one of the videos he uploaded after he used a racial slur in the lyrics.

McGregor, who got his Notorious nickname due to his Biggie Smalls fandom, was rapping along to the classic track 'Juicy'.

The lyrics at the very end of the chorus are "And if you don’t know, now you know, n****." - with McGregor and others in his company heard singing it loudly in public.

The video is still up on McGregor's Instagram post, which has garnered over 763,000 likes.

But many comments on his post were related to his lack of refrain from using the offensive language.

One user commented, "Lmao my man has the n word pass", with another writing: "I was wondering if anyone else was gonna comment on him saying that. But passes shouldn’t be handed out."

A third added: "Conor casually droppin [sic] the N word lmaoo".

In August, WBC world heavyweight champion was involved in a similar scenario as he was seen saying the n-word while rapping the very same song during his 32nd birthday celebrations.

In July 2017 McGregor was accused by some of being "racially insensitive" for shouting at Floyd Mayweather to "dance for me, boy!" in the build-up to their boxing superfight.

In response, McGregor told reporters: "I think it's f---ing ridiculous. I don't understand it. I know who I am as a person. I didn't really hit right [in New York with his comments]. Most realistic people can see that.

"He's trying to sway something by [saying I'm] disrespecting women.

"I didn't talk about his past. If anything, it was a dirty play on his behalf. You play like that it's a b---- move and you know that, but it's done now and lets gets ready to fight."
