“I Turned Him Into A Mexican Tonight” : Hypersensitive Snowflake Media Triggered By Conor McGregor Compliment Following Loss To Mayweather

0

After a surprisingly brutal showdown in Las Vegas last night between Mixed Martial Arts fighter Conor McGregor and undefeated boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, McGregor was quoted as saying that he turned Floyd Mayweather “into a Mexican.”

As you might have expected, the social justice crowd immediately pounced into action across the internet.

Words like racism, bigot and stereotype started flying.

But for those that know anything about boxing, the word “compliment” is more appropriate.

The Mexican style of boxing is one that is often overly aggressive and involves a lot of punches being thrown. Mayweather, though undefeated with a record of 50-0, has long been criticized for his defensive style and low punch volume during fights.

What McGregor actually meant, though completely misconstrued by those looking for some sort of racism to grasp onto, is that the usually reserved Mayweather was forced to fight more aggressively because the Irishmen just kept coming at him.

Wait a minute…did I hear him right??? Did he really just say “I turned him into a Mexican tonight”?! #MayweathervMcgregor pic.twitter.com/tznVZ8nQVb
