Mayweather's ex rips McGregor for exploiting her abuse

Blasts McGregor

Blasts McGregor

During a 2010 domestic violence incident - Mayweather reportedly flew into a rage when he saw text messages from his then-girlfriend Josie Harris to National Basketball Association player C.J Watson and he allegedly beat her in front of their 3 kids.

Mayweather was convicted of attacking Harris during the 2010 domestic violence incident at the boxer's Vegas home in front of their three kids. Mayweather spent 2 months behind bars for the attack. No disrespect tho kid.

"Conor McGregor's exploitation of the events surrounding Mayweather's violent beating of Josie Harris, for the sole objective of promoting an upcoming boxing match and taunting his opponent in the ongoing media-driven feud between the two fighters, demonstrates not only an insensitivity toward the emotional well being and privacy of the victim of Mayweather's domestic violence, but also a general disregard for the physical and emotional trauma and long-lasting psychological impacts suffered by the victims of domestic abuse", Harris' attorney, Dan Friedlander, said in a statement. Well, Watson allegedly slept with Floyd Mayweather's ex-girlfriend, Josie Harris, back in 2010 and when Floyd found proof, he allegedly beat her and threatened both of their lives.

"By sensationalizing Mayweather's past acts of domestic violence to create entertainment and promotional value, McGregor trivializes domestic violence in disregard for the privacy and well being of those who have suffered at the hands of an abuse, further compounding the emotional and psychological trauma, shaming, humiliation, blaming and embarrassment suffered by so many victims".

The statement then concludes with a direct plea for McGregor to refrain from making light of the incident in the future.

"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", he added.

Wearing Watson's jersey wasn't the first time McGregor has invoked the incident as an attempt to get inside Mayweather's head.
