UFC legend Conor McGregor issues statement addressing Corsica allegations amid mental health concerns
Conor McGregor has vowed to never kill himself in another concerning social media post hitting back at trolls following his arrest on suspicion of attempted sexual assault and indecent exposure.
The UFC legend was released on Saturday without charge, and appears to be taking his latest controversy hard.
McGregor had earlier hit back at a Twitter user’s remark that England ‘can have him’ in response to an article, which described the proud Irishman as ‘English’.
The user describes herself as a ‘Certified Suicide Intervention Specialist’ in her Twitter bio, which McGregor picked up on.
“Suicide intervention yet ridiculing me in this manner online, at this horrendous time in my life,” he tweeted. “I am trying to stay strong for my kids and the people that rely on me and that love and support me. Thanks for the insults, hypocrite.”
He later wrote: “I can’t go on like this man. I am crushed here.”
While those tweets were deleted, he took to Facebook on Tuesday night to issue a further statement amid growing abuse directed at him.
“I will never kill myself no matter how many wish for it,” McGregor wrote. “Try set me up all yous f****** want over and over and over.
“The truth will always set me free! Be it baby father claims, rape, indecent exposure, bulls*** WhatsApp group s***. You f****** name it. Never will I fold!
“The truth is the truth and it gives me wings! I know my character. God bless DNA! God bless CCTV! God bless eyewitness[es]. God bless the truth! The truth is power! I am free!
“Never will a dime be paid to anyone coming at me with vicious lies. Not now, not f****** ever. I will fight! And I am only beginning my fight! All these past incidents you will see. They will not be forgotten!
“I will not allow these people to just accuse me and then disappear into the dark to attempt to ruin someone else life. No f****** way!”
