Conor McGregor is said to be under investigation by the Irish police in connection with his tweets regarding the recent riots in Dublin.
Reports indicate that a disturbing incident occurred outside a school in Dublin, resulting in five people being stabbed, including three children. The situation escalated into riots fueled by speculations that the perpetrator was a foreign national. However, the authorities have not released any information about the individual responsible. Despite this, McGregor voiced his opinions on the matter, criticizing the Irish leadership and calling for a change, particularly in the country's immigration policies.
Innocent children ruthlessly stabbed by a mentally deranged non-national in Dublin, Ireland today. Our chief of police had this to say on the riots in the aftermath. Drew, not good enough. There is grave danger among us in Ireland that should never be here in the first place, and… https://t.co/ac6j1GIjXD— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) November 23, 2023
“There is grave danger among us in Ireland that should never be here in the first place, and there has been zero action done to support the public in any way, shape or form with this frightening fact. NOT GOOD ENOUGH. Make change or make way. Ireland for the victory. God bless those attacked today, we pray,” McGregor
Currently, more than 30 people have been arrested by the authorities due to the riots. These riots involved around 500 people who were looting shops, damaging cars, and throwing rocks at the police who were trying to calm things down. Conor McGregor, however, spoke up even more about the riots, sharing on Twitter that he doesn't support the violence. He mentioned that he understands the frustrations behind the actions but doesn't condone them.
I do not condone last nights riots. I do not condone any attacks on our first responders in their line of duty. I do not condone looting and the damaging of shops. Last nights scenes achieved nothing toward fixing the issues we face. I do understand frustrations however, and I do… https://t.co/FFx7d0ZROb— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) November 24, 2023
“There will be change in Ireland, mark my words. The change needed. In the last month, innocent children stabbed leaving school. Ashling Murphy murdered. Two Sligo men decapitated. This is NOT Ireland’s future! If they do not act soon with their plan of action to ensure Ireland’s safety, I will,” says McGregor.
The Irish police, called Garda, are looking into Conor McGregor's posts to see if they might be considered hate speech. Some people are saying that McGregor's tweets could encourage violence, especially because one of the tweets shows him with a group of rioters.
