Conor McGregor is always a magnet for controversy.  

The Irish MMA superstar was among the many celebrities and athletes who got dressed up for Halloween. And celebs always pull out all the stops. “The Notorious One” not only put on a Halloween costume, he also made himself barely recognizable by going clean shaven, which is a crazy look for him.  Conor’s  wife Dee Devlin was  dressed up as a flight attendant to compliment Conor McGregor, who celebrated Halloween by dressing up as an airline pilot. 

McGregor’s mom Margaret also joined in on the Halloween fun. .She too was in costume, dressed up in a red dress, a necklace with three skulls hanging from it, and her face painted with what a flood of people on social media called blackface.

Scroll thru to see the pics below:

  • “Is no one talking about the woman dressed in blackface?????????” one person commented on Instagram.
  • “Every one care about the beard, but none about the black face?” wrote another.
  • “Is that…blackface? What is going on with that?” someone else questioned.
  • “Nobody else seeing the black face paint on the lady at the end? Wtf?” asked another person.

Conor McGregor’s mom also appeared in her costume in a since-deleted Instagram story posted by his sister Erin. She has since denied that it was blackface.  

“The McGregor family loves Halloween,” a spokesman for the McGregor family told the Mirror. “Mrs. McGregor had spiders painted on her face since her costume was a ghoul risen from the grave.

Any other interpretation was just wrong and truly unfortunate.”

Remember when Conor McGregor used to get press for fighting. Speaking of, he’s planning on making a return to the Octagon in 2023.
