Conor McGregor cropped a fan out of a photo but she got the last laugh

Monday November 14th, 2016

Man, Conor McGregor is just a magnet for controversy. 

While out about town in New York last week before UFC 205, McGregor ran into a couple of fans who wanted to take a photo—Erin Safran and her brother Sean. He obliged and the resulting image was pretty delightful. 

Three legends.

McGregor, no doubt quite pleased with how his pecs looked in the picture, decided to take Erin’s photo and post it on his own Instagram page.

Erin got the last laugh, though, reposting the same photo with McGregor lopped off—and a quote from his awesome post-fight interview

"I want to take this opportunity to apologize... to absolutely nobody." @thenotoriousmma

“I wasn’t sad or embarrassed at all, I was happy enough he screenshotted my own pic and took time to crop me out,” Erin told Buzzfeed. “I’m glad he really liked that photo of himself. Cropped or uncropped, I love him.”
