50 Cent Responds To Conor McGregor's Random Insult During Mayweather Press Conference

Too many battles happening here. 

The press conferences for Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor have gone to new levels of awkward, thanks to McGregor's cringeworthy comments.

This time around during his press conference held at Brooklyn's Barclays Theater on Thursday (July 13), the Irish MMA fighter not only came for Mayweather, but for 50 Cent as well.

After walking onto the stage in a fur coat and designer hot pants, McGregor greeted the crowd and called 50 Cent a "b**ch." He also mocked the sometimes friends' financial woes. "You and 50 are two fake money bi**hes. He's bankrupt and you're about to be," he taunted. "It should be, '50, nah, Bentley, nah. We owe bullocks to the IRS.'"

Um, okay.

As Mayweather kept busy in his phone, McGregor continued and pulled out JAY-Z's 4:44 album as a gift to the boxer. "I want you to take this and listen to this and learn how to maintain a real empire," he said. "When you're done, send it to 50 and tell him Blanco sent you."

Um, alright.

Mr. Curtis Jackson responded to the taunts by reminding McGregor to keep his head in the game.

"What the f**k wrong wit this white boy," he captioned his Instagram post. "You fighting Floyd not me fool."

According to Yahoo! Sports, McGregor has faced backlash for his comments made at the first two press conferences. From calling Mayweather a "boy" to calling African-American boxers "dancing monkeys," the athlete attempted to ease criticism with more jokes.

“A lot of media seem to be saying I’m against black people,” McGregor said. “That’s absolutely [expletive] ridiculous. Do they not know I’m half-black? I’m half-black from the belly button down. Here’s a present for my beautiful black female fans.”

“I’m a multicultural individual,” McGregor added during the interview portion. “I don’t really see color in my eyes. I just wanted to say something and have a little fun with it. I wanted to address it and address it in my own little way. It’s stupid and it’s ridiculous.”

The next stop on the press conference run before the Aug. 26 fight will be held at the SSE Wembley Arena in London.

In promotion of his latest studio album, TM104: Legend Of The Snowman, the Atlanta native took to The Weather Channel in his hometown to give viewers the prognosis for the week. Since climate change is ramping up day by day, Jeezy didn’t hesitate when he saw the forecast predicted a chance of snow everyday.

TM104 features CeeLo Green, Queen Naija, Meek Mill, Ty Dolla $ign, Gunna, Rick Ross and more. “All the records that I did, even the ones that didn’t make the album, they were all true to me,” he said to Billboard. “It’s what true thug motivation means. Just like everything that I’ve done, I put my heart into it like it was my first album. Like it was my first ad-lib. Like it was my first rodeo.”

Florida Gunman Convicted Of Manslaughter In Fatal Parking Lot Shooting

A Florida jury convicted a white gunman of killing an unarmed black father during an argument over a parking space. Jurors deliberated for more than six hours before finding Michael Drejka guilty of manslaughter in the July 2018 shooting death of Markeis McGlockton.

McGlockton, 28, was gunned down in front of his 5-year-old son in the parking lot of a Circle K gas station. The father of three was coming to his girlfriend’s defense after she was confronted by Drejka for parking in a handicap space while McGlockton ran into the store. Drejka, who alleged self-defense, claimed that he opened fire after McGlockton took “one step” towards him and shoved him. Drejka attempted to use Florida’s Stand Your Ground law to justify the fatal shooting, and saw no fault in his actions.

“I followed the law the way I thought the law was supposed to be followed. I cleared every hurdle that the law had to put in front of me,” he told a local news station last year.

Prosecutors argued that Drejka provoked the confrontation and video surveillance confirmed that McGlockton was backing away from Drejka. The state’s self-defense argument doesn’t apply if the shooter caused the altercation.

Drejka, who faces up to 30 years in prison, had no reaction to the verdict, CBS News reports. He remains held without bond and is scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 10.
