Conor McGregor is known for being showy with his wealth. Some fans love that about him, while others seem to find it unnecessary. The retired MMA fighter recently took his bragging to an extreme on Instagram, and social media users were quick to call him out on it.
McGregor, 30, posted a series of photos of himself on the photo-sharing site wearing two different mink fur coats. Both jackets were designed by Gucci, which recently made the decision to “discontinue all animal skin clothing from their line,” according to the athlete’s caption. McGregor likened the coats, which he said he paid $55,000 and $80,000 for, to “art pieces.”
In addition to boasting about the price and uniqueness of the coats, each of which is emblazoned with a different creature according to McGregor, the championship fighter bragged about the events to which each was worn. McGregor said the furs were “iconic from a fight game standpoint,” noting that he wore one to the “first legal even in the state of New York,” and another to “the highest grossing event, and biggest crossover fight in combat sports history.”
“But remember when you got caught with the tags still on it,” one person commented.
