Conor McGregor Under Investigation for This Gun-Wielding Instagram Pic
Conor McGregor, like so many other athletes with access to social media, seems to be totally oblivious to the consequences of his actions. The UFC champ recently posed in a picture wearing a scarf around his face and pointing what many believe to be an HK MP5 at the camera. The stupid Instagram caption “Put the fight game in the bag and step away from the vehicle” is just the icing on the cake to this act of lunacy.
Ireland has incredibly strict gun laws, and even if the gun is determined or proven to be a replica, McGregor could still be facing a year in jail.
While this is disappointing that someone with so much going for them would want to act out some 8 year-old’s fantasy with guns and a Rolls, it’s certainly not surprising. The Irish police, the Garda, say they’re looking into the circumstances of the photo and will make a statement when they get more info.
