The use of that gay slur has Mayweather in some hot water with an LGBT organization and they spoke out about it to TMZ Sports.
“Hudson Taylor, executive director of Athlete Ally — an org. that promotes LGBT acceptance in sports — took notice and denounced Floyd’s actions, telling TMZ Sports: “Athlete Ally strongly condemns the homophobic slur used by Floyd Mayweather.”
“The response given by Mayweather’s representative is equally troubling. If Mayweather truly has the utmost respect for the LGBT community, he wouldn’t resort to using slurs that perpetuate anti-LGBT stigma and hate.”
Taylor goes on to address McGregor’s alleged involvement, saying, “Resorting to homophobic and racial epithets is shameful no matter how or why one uses them.”
