A pair of tweets by Conor McGregor has people worried for his wellbeing.
McGregor was recently taken into custody by French police on suspicions of sexual assault and indecent exposure. Although none of the allegations have been proven, the attention is seemingly troubling the former two-division UFC champion. McGregor posted two now-deleted tweets, re-posted by combat sports journalist Chisanga Malata.
"I can't go on like this man. I am crushed here," McGregor tweeted. He subsequently wrote, "Suicide intervention yet ridiculing me in this manner online at this horrendous time in my life. I am trying to stay strong for my kids and the people that rely on me and that love and support me. Thanks for the insults, hypocrite."
