Former UFC champion Conor McGregor has come under fire for visiting a local supermarket without wearing a face mask.
McGregor, the UFC’s first ever dual-weight titleholder, took to Instagram on Wednesday to share a video of him in a supermarket in his native Ireland.
In the clip, the 32-year-old poses with a bottle of his Proper Twelve whiskey and interacts with an employee behind the shop’s till. The caption reads: “Support local.”
Ireland is currently in a severe ‘Level 5’ lockdown amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and with McGregor sporting no mask in the footage, critical comments soon flooded in on his post.
“WHERE IS YOUR MASK!!!!!!” wrote one user, while another commented: “Show respect and wear a mask.”
“You sure are a champ but you must wear your damn mask man,” wrote another user.
“Where’s your mask bud?” was another of the numerous critical replies to the post.
