Conor McGregor has caused quite a stir on the internet tonight after he reacted angrily to someone questioning his decision to wear a poppy at an event in the UK last year.
The Facebook post which finished with "Fuck the Queen" has split opinion, with some feeling what he said was spot on, while others felt that The Notorious one was way out of order, but many were quick to take to social media and express their opinion.
McGregor going hard or home with that status, hugeeee risk

I agree (mostly) with McGregor for his stance on wearing the poppy but he will have lost a lot of respect after that brainless Facebook post
