Celebrities throwing the first pitch at the opening game of the season is nothing new, we’ve seen many of them attempt it. So, when mixed martial arts fighter Conor McGregor threw the first pitch at a Chicago Cubs game this week, we were expecting a bit of controversy seeing as he’s not one to shy away from controversy.
Showing up in a suit, the 33-year-old Irishman got the crowd excited and then threw one of the worst pitches ever. In fact, so bad that it has been compared to the official worst pitch ever thrown by rapper 50 Cent.
Usually, celebs laugh at themselves, get a bit embarrassed and then move on. Not McGregor, no.
He took to social media to share his disgust with being compared to 50 Cent.
“The audacity to compare mine with this p*ss! Picture to picture alone buries this. Mine, bar the accuracy, was the most powerful and fastest first pitch of any of these other athletes/artist(s) over the years. No comparison. Smoke them up and down that Forbes I do,” he posted with a photo of him next to 50 Cent.
