If you follow Conor McGregor on any of his social media profiles you will know just how flamboyant the Irish superstar’s life is. Followers are treated to outrageous fashion ensembles, glitzy parties and private jets on a daily basis. However, it seems one of McGregor’s favourite pastimes has landed him in a spot of bother.
Purchasing prestigious vehicles has become a staple in McGregor’s life since hitting the big time. The UFC lightweight champion proudly flaunts his BMW i8, Lamborghini Huracan and of course his two Rolls-Royces. During a recent escapade to Liverpool, McGregor posted a photo of himself standing on the bonnet of a sublime Rolls-Royce Wraith with the caption, “Liverpool we run your entire city”.
According to the Liverpool Echo, McGregor was not the owner of the vehicle but rather he was simply renting it from a luxury car hire company called ‘Platinum Executive Travel’. The company confirmed that they will be examining the car for any damages entailed and will follow up with legal action if required.
“Lord” Aleem Iqbal, who is the son of the owner of the car hire firm, has earned himself quite a following on his own social media for posting extravagant pictures like that of McGregor. He expressed his anger for McGregor’s actions by commenting under the Irishman’s post where he said, “When you own one Conor then you can stand on it like Floyd, until then you can lose your deposit for standing on mine”.
Iqbal fired further shots at The Notorious one by posting this picture on his Instagram account soon after.
A spokesperson for Platinum Executive Travel declined to comment on how much of a deposit McGregor paid but did confirm that the record-breaking fighter would not be welcome back due to ‘the level of disrespect’ that was shown.
Conor McGregor, Notorious by name, notorious by nature.
