Floyd Mayweather’s Ex-Girlfriend Blasts Conor McGregor For Joking About Domestic Violence & Reopening Old Wounds
Conor McGregor may have thought he was upsetting Floyd Mayweather when he brought up his domestic violence past, but the woman at the center of it says it’s no laughing matter.
During a 2010 domestic violence incident, Mayweather reportedly flew into a rage when he saw text messages from his then-girlfriend Josie Harris to NBA player C.J Watson. Floyd allegedly beat her in front of their three kids. That incident put Mayweather behind bars for two months.
Just last week, McGregor brought attention back to that incident when he wore a Golden State Warriors jersey that had Watson’s name on it. That was enough for Josie to send out a statement condemning the UFC Lightweight Champ for his actions.
“[The stunt] demonstrates not only an insensitivity toward the emotional wellbeing and privacy of the victim of Mayweather’s dom. violence, but also a general disregard for the physical and emotional trauma and long-lasting psychological impacts suffered by victims of dom. abuse,” Josie’s attorney, Dan Friedlander, tells TMZ Sports.
“On behalf of Josie Harris, her and Mayweather’s three children, and all victims of domestic violence, we ask that Conor McGregor refrain from capitalizing off of the trauma suffered by her and other victims of domestic abuse.”
