Floyd Mayweather’s Latest Attempt To Troll Conor McGregor Backfired In A Big Way
It’s hard to believe it’s been over a year since Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather faced off in the most hyped boxing match in recent memory— a fight that ultimately ended after McGregor shifted to an ill-advised strategy that involved getting punched in the face a bunch.
The match was the culmination of months of back-and-forth between the two fighters, including what might have been the best thing to come out of the entire saga: McGregor’s custom pinstripe suit.
McGregor is slated to return to the Octagon and face off against Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in November in his first MMA fight in two years and there’s been speculation that it might only be a matter of time until Mayweather eventually faces off against him in the cage at some point in the future.
On Tuesday, the fighter decided it was time to reignite the rivalry with a tweet taking aim at Mayweather.
As you’d expect, Mayweather was quick to respond.
However, he wasn’t done there.
He followed up his response with another tweet where he hijacked the #WCW hashtag to encourage his fans to contribute to a “Whoop Connor [sic] Wednesday.”
The only problem? Mayweather posted the tweet on Thursday morning.
As you probably know, there is nothing people on the internet love doing more than calling someone out for being an idiot, and this was no exception.
In fairness, that last guy kind of has a point.
When you’re the highest paid celebrity in the world, it’s not your job to know what day of the week it is. However, you should 100% have a guy in your entourage whose only duty is to keep track of that.
As a result, this is just inexcusable.
