The Irish police are currently investigating Conor McGregor for posting a photo of a man in a ski mask holding a gun.
On Thursday, UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor posted an Instagram photo of someone posing with a gun in what appears to be one of the Irishman’s cars.
“We are investigating the circumstances under which the photo was taken. Gardai from Crumlin are investigating,” a Gardai spokesperson said.
It’s difficult to identify who’s holding the weapon and whether it is, in fact, a real gun.
It does appear to be the Dubliner’s BMW i8 car, however. Given Ireland’s strict gun laws and McGregor’s footage of shooting an Airsoft pellet gun in the past, it’s unlikely that the 27-year-old was posing with a real gun.
