Conor McGregor tried his best to spread a message of hope but lashed out against the Coronavirus after it claimed the life of his aunt.
The MMA legend penned an emotional statement after he learned the COVID-19 virus took the life of Anne Moore, his mother's sister. The star shared his thoughts about the pandemic and said he is taking steps to keep his family safe. McGregor said that the photos were posted a few days ago and what was supposed to be a joyous occasion turned into a nightmare when he learned the news about his aunt.
"These photos are from a few days ago at a studio in Dublin’s City centre," Conor wrote on Instagram. "I was to announce to the world my @properwhiskey donation to @Tunnel2Towers. A great day! A proud day, I brought my family with me to the studio. Sitting in the chair about to beam live to all the U.S morning talk shows, I get a phone call telling me that my lovely little auntie Anne had passed away. I couldn’t go live anymore. My poor little friendly loving auntie. My mother’s sister. This stupid fucking virus. What the fuck is happening. I took my family to bull island. Looked out at the sea. Took a deep breath. Thank fuck! Lord thank you 🙏."
