Conor McGregor caused shock last night when he posted a controversial rant on Facebook.

The UFC champ got a huge reaction on his FB page when he wrote a lengthy comment about his views on Poppy Day, culminating with “F*** you and the Queen”.

The Dublin fighter wrote the post after photos of him circulated online at a UFC event in 2013 where he was seen to be wearing a poppy and criticised by fans.

In his incredible outburst about the wearing of poppies around Remembrance Sunday, observed in Commonwealth of Nations member states since the end of WW1 to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty, ‘The Notorious’ said:

He concluded: “You have a pint in your hand and a Celtic jersey on in your local. F*** you and the Queen.”

The tirade divided many of his followers, and while many showed support to Conor and his outspoken views, the majority of the reaction was negative.

One Facebook user posted underneath his rant: “I find the fact you refer to yourself as a soldier disrespectful to our true warriors that have bled and fought on battlefields. Your arrogance will be your undoing. As much as I’ve enjoyed following your rise to the top, I can’t wait to see Aldo knock you back down.”

In the aftermath of the online storm he created, the Crumlin native took to Twitter, tweeting: “Fu** politics and fu** religion.  I just want to swing a few lefts and a few rights for a couple of hundred mill in peace.”
