50 Cent evidently isn’t done with Conor McGregor. After trolling the Irish mixed martial arts fighter on Thursday (April 5), the veteran rapper/actor is back for more.
On Friday morning (April 6), 50 shared the infamous photo of pop star Britney Spears attacking a car with a green umbrella, only McGregor’s face is photoshopped on Spears’ body.
The caption reads, “Good morning people. is that yo Britney. LOL.”
McGregor was taken into custody late Thursday night after attacking a UFC bus with a dolly earlier this week, according to TMZ. McGregor was led out of a Brooklyn precinct on Friday after he was arrested for misdemeanor assault and felony criminal mischief.
He is reportedly being transferred to court where he will be arraigned.
UFC president Dana White reportedly said McGregor’s fighting future is up in the air but wouldn’t confirm if UFC is planning to sever ties completely.

50 Cent has once again set his sights on frequent adversary Conor McGregor. After the Irish mixed martial arts fighter was caught on camera smashing out the window of a bus at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, the Power mastermind hit Instagram to post a video of the incident.
Alongside an eyeball emoji, 50 wrote in the caption, “this fool, now they got a warrant out on him. LOL.”
On Thursday (April 5), UFC president Dana White said fellow fighter Michael Chiesa was “cut to pieces” during the melee, according to TMZ. Despite his injuries, Chiesa will still fight in the event as reported by MMA Fighting.
McGregor crashed the media event ahead of UFC 223 where Russia’s Khabib Nurmagomedov and featherweight champion Max Holloway are scheduled to fight on Saturday (April 7).
USA Today reports the NYPD is currently looking for McGregor but that an arrest warrant hasn’t been issued.
The UFC will officially strip McGregor of his lightweight championship bel on Saturday — a decision that was made before the incident went down.
McGregor responded to the decision with some choice words on Twitter.
You’s’ll strip me of nothing you’s do nothing cunts.

White reportedly added that law enforcement warned McGregor he can’t leave the state and has been instructed to turn himself in to authorities.
50 and McGregor have been involved in several social media wars over the past year. Last month, McGregor teased the Get Rich or Die Tryin’ rapper, saying he needed to wear a bra.
